Imagine this; sitting and watching the panorama of the sunset over the Cape Peninsula, with a beautiful garden and a swimming pool below you. At the same time having a feeling of being in a totally exclusive world, with no distractions except an occasional pigeon. Behind you is this cosy standard double room that accommodates all your expectations for privacy and comfort. You find all this at Winkfield House. It is a perfect place for long stay, you are constantly updated on what to do at any day, and where the best markets and vineyards are. The whole accommodation and services are of top quality. The rooms, the lounge, and the patio are squeaky clean. The grounds and the swimming pool are impeccable. To sit in the shade under the trees, is a perfect place to write or meditate. Other guests are around, and all are enjoying the hospitality of Robert and Katharina. Will we return? The answer is a resounding “yes”! We were all in agreement, us and the other guests. This is a place we can highly recommend.

From the moment we arrived, ahead of the New Year, Robert & Katherina ensured that our stay met all our expectations. It started well with a welcoming (free) drink when we could chat about the location and the places to go and avoid, nearby. The location is excellent, 30 minutes from central Cape Town. The airport is even closer and it's a springboard to explore several of the highlights of the Western Cape. Somerset West is is a lovely area although the downtown area is nothing special.
The guest house is rally well maintained. It offers standard apartments, which I didn't see, as we were lucky enough to be allocated a self catering apartment. Very spacious, with a private garden. The west-facing patio area was ideal for sundowners. Request this (the Oak Room) if you can. Especially if you like a water bed!
The salt water pool is great - and a good size. The dogs are fun and provide security, so long as you are OK with dogs! Breakfast was very good, with seating inside or on the patio/balcony. So much storage space! Fresh flowers on arrival.
Such a relaxing week.

Room Tip: Spend extra on the larger self-catering apartment,

Been there for a day on our way to the Garden Route. It's really an outstanding B&B with a nice garden, a great pool and clean and spacious rooms. The friendly hosts showed hospitality, personal interest and were always ready to help you with any matter. Full recommendation, could relax there for days.

A very good place to stay at in Somerset West. Simply the perfect place. People afraid of dogs shall perhaps look elsewhere, or just warn ahead that you are afraid. The rooms are perfect, very clean and high standard. Very nice common areas. Really nice garden. I went here for business trip, but would not hesitate to stay there for vacation as well.
