We had a late flight and only arrived at the guest house at 11 pm. Peter was very accommodating, making us feel welcome and safe at our arrival. The rooms are modern and well equipped.

I can honestly say that this is probably the best service I have ever had in a guest house. The guest house is lovely and spotlessly clean. The owners, Peter and Mia were absolutely professional. The view over false bay is simply stunning. The gardens are lovely and is a peaceful area to relax next to the swimming pool.

I spent a heavenly fortnight at Somerset Sights. The rooms are tastefully decorated, clean, comfortable and airy, with very comfy beds. Each room has a tv, a mini bar and direct access to the lovely gardens with pool. The view over false bay is stimply stunning, with a mountainrange on the left, Strand and ocean straight up and the bay...
