Bed & Breakfast
Hout Bay


Welcome to Marlinspike Guest Lodge! Situated in Hout Bay, Cape Town, Marlinspike offers magnificent sea and mountain views as well as top class Guest House / Bed and Breakfast accommodation.

Our Villa holds a prime position in Cape Town, overlooking the colorful Fisherman's village of Hout Bay, with spectacular, uninterrupted views of the yacht marina, the fishing harbour, Chapman's Peak and Hout Bay beach from every bedroom!

We offer bed and breakfast accommodation in one of our six double guest rooms. Each of which has sea and mountain views as well as en suite bathrooms, tea and coffee facilities, TV and use of the swimming pool. Two of the rooms can be combined into a family unit (ground floor).

There are phones in every room and we are one of the few Western Cape Guest Houses offering optional Broadband Wireless Internet access from all rooms as well as Conference and Office facilities.

Children are welcome (under parent’s strict control of course as the pool is not covered and the balconies are not ‘children friendly’) and while the indoor areas and rooms are non smoking you may take a puff in our beautiful indigenous garden with a variety of fynbos which is unique to this part of the world.

By staying at Marlinspike Guest Lodge, you may enjoy the riches that Cape Town has to offer without having to endure the city centre traffic.

Enjoy an evening drink in our cozy lounge and pub where we serve wine, beer, spirits and soft drinks. Our specialty is Foresters Bitter on tap which is freshly delivered from our local Mitchells Brewery. For those cold winter nights we have a large fire place - the perfect place to share the days events.

Dinner is served on request. We are famous for our seafood platter. Alternatively you may choose a succulent South African steak, lamb and ostrich.
