I stayed at Roosboom whilst on business, and it was highly recommended by a VIP client. From the start, Mabel and Ian went out of their way to provide the best service and made me feel at home. I had a gorgeous suite with beautiful views. Stunning luxurious Guesthouse catering for every need. I will be back for sure!

My wife and I spent five glorious sunny days with Ian & Mabel in their beautiful home in Somerset West.They couldn't have been more accommodating. Our apartment was large, beautifully decorated and had excellent kitchen facilities. Our patio doors opened out onto a secluded, walled patio area which included comfortable chairs, a table to eat at and a lovely fountain feature. The area is elevated so their are great views of the Strand and Gordons Bay and nearby, within walking distance, is an excellent Spar shop for your daily provisions.

The place is very well located, with clean and well accomodated rooms. Safe close parking. The view from the upper rooms is just amazing, giving a lanscape on all Somerset West, Mountains & Oceans. The hosting family is very kind, friendly and careful about all your needs. If you're on a business trip, the wifi connection is very efficient. All is very perfect, a place I will definitely return during my next trip there.

I will make this my home away from home. The hosts are friendly and professional. The accommodation is classy and clean. The view over False Bay spectacular. You’re surrounded by so many great restaurants and the Winelands a few minutes drive away. We had a great stay and will return.

What a lovely apartment, very clean and spacious with a fully fitted kitchen, lounge area and super spacious shower. There was even a washing machine. Beds were very comfortable with crisp, clean linen. Such friendly and helpful hosts, Ian and Mabel, thank you so much for making our stay so comfortable. Will definitely stay here again.
