Stunning 5 star B & B in Somerset West. By far the best B & B we’ve ever stayed at! Modern, spacious bedrooms with a beautiful deck where u can enjoy a glass of wine or a cup of coffee overlooking the pool. Spectacular views overlooking Gordon’s Bay and the Stellenbosch Mountains in the backdrop. Our host was attentive and engaging, nothing was too much trouble from the beautiful wine he served to a great coffee. Added bonus, a Nespresso machine in the bedroom 😊 Modern, spacious bedrooms with a beautiful deck where u can enjoy a glass of wine or a cup of coffee overlooking the pool.

I cannot recommend this Guest House highly enough. It Has spectacular views over To Gordon’s Bay with the mountains in the background. The host Mohammad, was attentive and informative of places of interest locally. The accommodation itself is of a high standard with all your needs catered for. Breakfast was excellent and a varied choice was available. I will have no hesitation in staying in this Guest House again and recommending it to friends visiting South Africa from the UK.

Brand new and spotless clean! Perfect room with everything you need. Nice garden and pool to relax or swim. Mohammed is such a kind and nice host! He will do everything to make you feel comfortable and welcome as if it is your own house. Very good price/ quality and great location. Close to everything wineries, shops, beach etc. We definitely stay here another time when we are back in West Cape

This is a lovely place to stay in Somerset West, with great views across to Gordon’s Bay. The rooms are very stylishly furnished, and the full breakfast (which is included in the package) is beautifully served with lots of attention to detail.

What makes it special is the service from the managers—no request is too much trouble. Thank you!
