Verified reviewexcellent

We loved our stay at the Carmichael House! Our daughter is a student at UCT and was able to stay with us ! The rooms are lovely and spacious! Valerie and Yves provided us with everything we needed as well as offering wonderful advice for our outings. The breakfast was delicious and the croissant got us out of bed in the morning! Thank you for a wonderful week!

Verified reviewexcellent

Carmichael House is wonderful. I stayed there while visiting my daughter at the University of Cape Town. The location is within easy walking distance of campus and dorms. Hosts Sandy and Nic were most hospitable. They arranged for airport transfers and tours that picked me up right a ttheir front door. The breakfasts were a great way to start the day. I enjoyed my spacious room and the thoughtful hospitality my hosts provided. I was most impressed.
