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.

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 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

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.

We stayed for two nights at Alpha B&B prior to our departure from S. Africa. The room was very comfortable and private and breakfast was very filling.
