This was our second visit and again we loved this place. Other reviews have said all the good things that I would say so I would like to add something about the location. Somerset West is now the foodie area of Capetown and has the most amazing Restaurants. What more could you want on holiday than a great Great small... More

I visited Somerset West on a business trip recently and stayed one night at this beautiful guesthouse. Mareaze and the staff made me feel right at home and catered for all my needs in such a friendly and professional manner. They had my breakfast ready before 7 (breakfast usually starts @ 7:30) to accommodate my busy schedule. Thanks Mareaze and... More

We had a great stay at this luxury B&B. The staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. Our suite was beautiful with a gorgeous large bathroom. The common areas were beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We definitely recommend this B&B

A boutique hotel with only 5 rooms (and a conference room) makes for really very personal service. The manager, Mareaze, really put herself out to assist us preparing an early breakfast for us to take away on the day we checked out. Her local knowledge was excellent, enabling us to see/do more than we would have managed if we were... More

Our needs were comfortable accommodation for two nights to do some shopping at the nearby factory outlets and also to have affordable access to the wine estates for tastings and purchases.
