I had the pleasure of staying over at Alphabed on at least three occasions. Every time the service was exceptional, where the staff goes the extra mile to make sure that everything is arranged to make your stay comfortable and you can concentrate on your business. Thank you and well done to the Alphabed staff. Natie Kroukam

Well located in a quiet and safe neighbourhood of Summerset West. We occupied the upstairs guestroom, which is very large, for 3 nights. Carine is a wonderful host, really going out of her way to accommodate and help guests. Great breakfast.

The rooms were a good size and clean, very varied breakfast choices, lovely sized, clean pool. The help Carine gave us to book restaurants, chase up booked tickets, made our holiday stay special....

We promised that we would return, but never thought that we would actually do it. Especially not 1 year after our first visit. AlphaBed is conveniently close to the airport (KLM flights from Amsterdam arrive late in the evening), and to the winelands & to Cape Town centre. Carine, our host, is Flemish, so we immediately felt at home 10,000... More

We were looking for a nice place not too far from the airport and we found it at AlphaBed. Nathalie gave us a very warm welcome. The room was beautiful and overlooking the garden and the pool. We enjoyed the breakfast on the veranda in the morning. We can recommend it very much and it is a place to go... More

We had occasion to be in Somerset West on business and searched the net for a B&B. Now sometimes what you see on the net and what you actually get are vastly different. AlphaBed was true to the last word and much much more. We were met by Natalie and shown to our splendid rooms over looking the pool and... More

Alphabed B&B was our first contact with South-Africa - we arrived late at night after a long flight from Amsterdam and a first try at driving left. Nathalie & Chris gave us a warm welcome and showed us to their cosy family suite - a room for us and an even more comfortable room for our daughters (they got the... More

I stayed at Alpha B&B for a conference up the road. I must say the service was fantastic, and the owners were so friendly.The rooms were absolutely beautiful with all the ammenities you need. The highlight for me, was the delicious breakfast that was served in the mornings. I can highly recommend Alpha B&B to anyone visiting Somerset West.
