Fantastic, friendly and comfortable stay at Bay View in Somerset West. We were looking for accommodation where we could stay regularly as our son is in boarding in Somerset West. The location, view, affordability and finishes offered us the ideal home away from home to be with our son on weekends.
Bay View was a lovely find when we were looking for accommodation in Somerset West. Situated on a hill in the Heldervue the accommodation not just offers a stunning view over the bay but offers comfortable rooms with a lot of extras that made the stay enjoyable and memorable. Bay View have lovely finishes and offers a home away from home feeling. We stayed in the spacious family room that offered my son a separate bedroom from a main bedroom. Mark's friendly welcoming reception will guarantee that we will be back.
Mark understood when I arrived late at night and was so welcoming. The garden and the view is spectacular. The room is spacious and has everything you would need during your stay. Would absolutely go back.
I stayed at Bay View Somerset West for four nights and it was absolutely wonderful. I really feel I don't want to tell everyone how perfect it was for fear of them not having availability when I need it! The room was extremely clean and the bed exceptionally comfortable, with crisp white linen. The breakfast basket was thoughtfully put together. I really liked the lounge area as well, and I felt at home sitting there. They also offer safe and secure parking. Mark is a delightful (and funny) host and I will make a point of returning whenever I need to travel to Somerset West again.
Excellent location , great rooms , fantastic bathrooms and excellent service. Suggest the outside passage lights be turned off after 10 pm as they make the rooms rather light for sleeping. The mini continental breakfast you can order in advance for only R60.00 is excellent. Hot water in shower and basins takes a fairly long time to come through, so this is a bit of a concern with the water crisis in the W.Cape which they have addressed at Bay view by recycling the laundry water and other grey water usage. I suggest geysers or local heaters are located closer to the outlets. The bathrooms are superb - spacious and with beautiful fittings , towels etc. Nice mini bar and main lounge area. Stunning views. Excellent hosts - definitely a place to stay.
Living overseas and having family in the area, this is the perfect place to enjoy some time for ourselves as a family, without having to be too intrusive to those we are visiting. The rooms are clean and secure. What I really love is the honesty system that still exists in this place such as the honest mini bar and bar. Mark is a great host and was always available to help with things to do or to assist with our bags. We will always use this place as long as my folks continue to live in this area. Thank you once again for an amazing stay.
We stayed in Room 6, which is at the back of the guesthouse and has a private garden. This room was really lovely, private and quiet. The room was lovely and clean, nice comfy queen sized bed with a huge spacious bathroom. We will definitely be back in July. We had a wonderful time. Thank you.
Excellent small establishment. Friendly staff. Fantastic views towards The Strand. Ideal stay for business trip to Somerset West. Nice small touches, i.e chocolat, milk and drinks in fridge, snacks etc.
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.
