Relaxing weekend stay in Somerset West, with a courteous, although also discreet host. Luxury, great breakfast and breathtaking scenery sum it up. Very convenient family room, with separate children's room and full bathroom. Big garden for children to explore. Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights. Nice location, excellent accommodation, well presented and secure. We only had breakfast whilst there, which was very nice, and of good quality. We have no problem recommending Hottentots View as a place to stay.

Our two weeks stay was really wonderful. Every day it was a little bit like coming home. A wonderful, secure and peaceful place to be. Warm hospitality, a lot of valuable advices and a lot of more things you normally don't expect. We come back - for sure !
