We were looking for a place to sleep in Somerset-Wes and found this gem. The owners wife made us feel at home from the minute she greeted us. Was very helpful, from checking us in to getting our luggage from the car to our room. She helped us to order in some food. Breakfast was great with loads of fresh...

I would highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone. It was amazing. Great service and lovely facilities. So clean and they were the most helpful people when organizing our trip. The people even held something I forgot, so I could get it at a later date!

We had a very enjoyable three night stay at Somerset Villa. Breakfast was taken on the pool patio and was first class. All of the staff were helpful and genuinely hospitable. We were able to BBQ in the evening and enjoy a meal around the pool. All the necessary tableware was happily provided. Would highly recommend.

Sadly, we were at the end of our 3 1/2 week travel, when we found Somerset Villa Guesthouse for our last night stay. It was perfect, it was very relaxed at check-in with the warm friendly staff (and a happy puppy). The room was very comfortable, with plenty of space, to pack up suitcases properly, the pool allowed us to...

Nice location, excellent service, very very friendly people, large pool, excellent breakfast, each room has a private nice space outside. Don't choose the lowest category, the room is too small. No air conditioning

We received an extremely warm welcome on arrival. The staff were extremely freindly and the service was great throughout our stay. Our family room was more than big anough for the 4 of us and was very clean. Cooked breakfast was excellent as well as other good choices.

We stayed at the guesthouse for 10 days whilst in Cape Town for a wedding. The family suite was lovely and spacious and the guesthouse had good facilities and felt peaceful and secure. The staff (Gayle) could not be more helpful. Breakfast was lovely, laundry services were offered and the whole group we stayed with thoroughly enjoyed it.

Friendly service from the staff, good breakfast, a spacious room with nice en-suite bathroom, a beautiful pool and a good location close to the R44 is what you will find at this guesthouse. Will definitely consider this for a future stay.

Have you ever read reviews that criticize a property because they expect a 5star experience when the property so obviously isn't? Yes so have I. Annoying isn't it! So what we have here is a guesthouse with a pool, BBQ area and lounge. The rooms have a fridge and a fan. Some rooms have a private terrace some leading out...
