Couldn’t have a better place to stay in Somerset West. Rooms with fantastic views at the front, garden room at the rear was luxurious. Secure parking. Easy to find and convenient for Somerset Mall and Somerset West centre. Convenient for the airport and starting point for the wine trail. Mark and Eugene were generous with advice on the best routes to follow and places to see. One of the best places I’ve ever stayed in. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

Always difficult to judge accomodation from the web without being present. Well, this is just what we did. We were warmly welcomed by Mark & Eugene (our kind of people) at their lovely establishment. Our room had a wonderful uninterupted view of the bay and we were comfortable in two cushy chairs drinking a glass of wine. We also had a large bathroom with a shower and bath. The bath were of course out of the question to use with the water restrictions in place. We were given each evening, when we returned to our room, a chocloate on our bed which was a lovely gesture. We also had a fully stocked mini fridge and coffee & tea facilities making our stay so much more comfortable. We must metioned that we had a most comfortable king size bed. Mark en Eugene were around if and when

We received a very friendly reception. The room was well appointed with a stocked fridge and tea and coffee facilities ready to go. The room was clean and serviced every day.The view from the room was outstanding . . so picturesque.Mark (the proprietor) is a little treasure . . nothing is too much trouble. We were made very welcome to use the lovely lounge and honesty bar.Looking forward to our next visit . . it's such an easy place to stay.
