“Great place with great hospitality. ”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

I ended up discovering this little gem whilst i was waiting for my car to be repaired. I was only supposed to stay for two nights but ended up staying for four. Stunning gardens. Separate entrance and Fantastic hospitality make it a worthwhile place to stay when visiting Cape Town. I love the fact that i wasn't confined to a room like most guesthouses. Here you have a small but very well equipped kitchenette, lounge area and bathroom en suite. I highly recommend.

Stayed May 2014, travelled solo

Everything was immaculately clean, extremely comfortable, and cozy; and leaving this quiet neighbourhood, you will have an amazing view of Table Mountain and Table Bay. The room I was in was a tiny bit crowded with beds BUT it was very comfortable. I spent a morning working at the desk and using the internet, and even on a hot day it was cool with the open windows and ceiling fan. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful, even when I had to check out early on a Saturday morning! I loved it here and would stay again in a heartbeat.

Thanks to Mary Pat for the great hospitality! We enjoyed our stay for nearly a week very much. The rooms were comfortable, the B&B is situated in a quiet side street. The perfect place to stay for travellers that don't only want to visit the city, but also intend to explore the surrounding countryside.

I stayed for two nights at Maroela Guesthouse and was welcomed and made to feel at home by Mary, the owner. She went out of her way to find our about my dietary preferences and assist with transport arrangements to the Protea Hotel Tygervallei were I facilitated a workshop. The room was very comfortable and clean. My room had a fridge, stocked with drinks, beer and wine and facilities to make coffee and tea + snacks. I can strongly recommend Maroela House and would certainly stay here again when I visit Cape Town.

Many thanks to Mary for the friendly and professional hospitality. We enjoyed the comfort of our little Cottage in the back of the garden. All the premises were very clean, very comfortable at a good price. The served meals fullfilled every wish.
Back in Cape Town we will certainly be back in Maroela.
