À recommander et à ne pas manquer !

Posted Mar 7, 2016 on Hotels
Yves et sa charmante épouse Valérie sont des personnes très agréables et accueillantes. Ils sont à l'écoute et de très bon conseil ; ils parlent le français (de part leur origine), ce qui est confortable. La maison, de style victorien, est exceptionnellement belle. Notre chambre (la 5) était immense et la salle de bain élégante. Tout est soigné dans le détail, rien ne manque jusqu'aux petits bonbons déposés à notre attention sur la cheminée. Le jardin est une merveille, nous avons eu le bonheur de prendre le petit déjeuner sous les arbres. Le petit-déjeuner est excellent : excellents croissants, toasts et pain de mie complet, amandes, confitures, beurre, café, chocolat, lait,thé, excellents jus de fruits, salade de fruits frais etc... L'ensemble de la maison est d'une propreté remarquable et "sent bon le propre" (ce qui est particulièrement rare). Je ne peux que recommander cet établissement qui mérite ses 4 étoiles ! Merci encore à Yves et Valérie pour leur charmante hospitalité.

It was a great experience. I'll definitely stay there again next year. Great location. Friendly staff. Most importantly they were trustworthy so I was able to enjoy myself with worrying about anything.

Great B&B with amazing owners

Posted Jan 14, 2016
This has been a very very brilliant experience. Carmichael House is a lovely place with excellent owners who also run the place. The location is superb being very close to UCT, Riverside mall and Cavendish amongst others. The breakfast spread is great offering both continental as well as hot dishes. And of course lots of fruit. Highly highly recommended to all.

Guest comes first at this Guesthouse

Posted Feb 25, 2015
When you travel a lot, sometimes your experiences tend to get lost in the fog of it all.... This trip was different for us - and it was entirely the fault of Yves and Valerie! While this was our fourth trip to Cape Town, it was the first time we felt like we were coming home. Carmichael is much better than just a guesthouse - it is a local home away from home. The facilities, the rooms and the breakfasts were of course outstanding. But rarely do you find such a warm and welcoming environment. In fact, we were disappointed when we would come home and they weren't there to greet us (probably because they were taking care of all the others - Carmichael is a very popular place). Rondebosch is a fantastic base and it was extremely easy to get to anywhere from there - and the Guesthouse was even within walking distance of our favorite steakhouse - the Hussar Grill, which is well worth a long detour! Thanks Yves and Valerie for a great visit!!

Utrolig hyggelig vertskap

Posted May 14, 2013 on Hotels
Veldig sjarmerende og hyggelig sted. Vertskapet var utrolig forekommende og behjelpelige med alt. Frokosten var god. Det eneste å utsette var at det var kaldt på badet, men ettersom det ikke finnes ovner må man regne med det på denne tiden av året.Ypperlig beliggenhet i forhold til UCT. Stedet anbefales på det varmeste.

Dear Marit, Thank you very much for your kind comment. We are sorry you were cold in your bathroom. Had we know we would have offer you the option of a portable heater. We also have some heated bathrooms. Hopefully you'll get to enjoy one of them next time. In the meantime, keep well. Best regards / Yves
