I really liked my stay with Emsie and Carl. It is so homely and comfortable with great accessibility to Somerset West and the Cape. I highly recommend Emsie breakfasts and Carl's knowledge of tours around the Cape.

We were welcomed by the owners who were very friendly and helpful. Our room very comfortable and well appointed and clean, on the ground floor. It had good access and had secure parking just outside. Breakfasts were delicious. The owners had excellent local knowledge and gave us tips on what to see and where.

Woodlands Guest House was a lovely first night stop for us as part of exploring the garden route. The house and gardens are well maintained and our room was comfortable and the bathroom fab! Our breakfast the following morning was delicious with homemade bread from Emsie.
