Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The host was amazing. We did the Cape Agulhas Classis trail run, and slept over for one night. The morning with the run we came back late - just after 10 and the host still gave is breakfast and allowed us to clean up before we left. Staff is very friendly and helpful! Thank you

The staff were very friendly and you felt very welcome and at home. Might need to consider changing the stairs that go to the upper rooms. It is not Customer friendly, not sure how older People can get up.

Mermaid Guest house is a place to stay if you like clean rooms, good service and location easy to reach. Breakfast was more than our family expected, little extras and friendly people made a good start for the day.

We were only at this fabulous place for one night, but from the moment we arrived we were welcomed by a very friendly and hospitable receptionist. The guesthouse and room is aesthetically appealing and the breakfast was delicious. The guesthouse is perfectly situated for sightseeing. I would definitely stay there again and fell in love with Struisbaai

The guest house was easy to find and well situated. Apart from the steep steps to get upstairs the stay was amazing. The room and bathroom were spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was very good and overall very enjoyable. I would stay here again
