Staff is not only friendly and helpful, but also funny and cool! I am traveling all over SA on a monthly basis and this is definitely my fav! Close to Main Street and N2. Rochel prepare the best pancakes ever!

I would recommend this very comfortable guest house to all. Anthony and staff were so friendly and so easy going. Very relaxed atmosphere. My first trip to Cape Town and the manor is appropriately positioned for all the tourist sights, and I was the typical tourist, but no white socks in my sandals! The accommodation for a guest house is... More

This place defies the discription, "bed and breakfast", since this is a beautiful building with an elegant interior and, for us, quite a find in Somerset West. We spent one night in a regular or standard room which was very comfortable with ensuite bathroom. The reception was welcoming and offered free use of the internet. The room was spacious and... More

If more establishments had the same attitude as Antonie and his team, the Cape Winelands would be an even more amazing place! Having won a nights stay at Somerton Manor in 2011 which was supposed to be used by June 2012, imagine our surprise when in November 2013 they were still willing to honour the prize - and with such...

It is the best guest house in town and they certainly deserve their 4 star rating. One of the most scenic guest houses i've been too with class, style catering for both young and old. Beautiful green surrounds with a tranquil river and pool adding to the ambience. Facilities include a stunning "lapa" that guests can make use of with... More

The Somerton Manor is very old - not well kept. Carpets are not clean. There is no heater in the rooms and they are freezing! Furniture is outdated and ugly. Smoking room directly opposite the breakfast room and the smell is awful. The electricity kept going off in my room! I have come across three spiders in my room, although... More
