“Everything is well in place at Topsy Turvy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

We spent a wonderful eight days in this beautiful guesthouse during our one month South Africa vacation and we were truly sorry to leave. As soon as we arrived we had a warm welcome by our hosts, Ritje and Eric, and it was the start of many more plus points: a fantastic room and bathroom, a wonderful view, a great swimming pool and last but not least an excellent breakfast. So it is really easy to feel at home right away. The hosts are also very helpful and ready to give good advice and make restaurant bookings. What more can you expect? Excellent value for money! A guesthouse that we recommend without hesitation. We definetly would love to go back, rather sooner than later.

My fiancé and I stayed there for 2 nights. You need our honest opion ? 2 nights were not enough. We can't wait to go back. First of all a very warm welcome by Ritje and Eric. Fantastic rooms, a view to a kill, great tips about restaurants and places to visit.
We can highly recommend this guesthouse to everyone who likes a clean, friendly and warm place to stay.

Was on a business trip in the CPT area at the end of september. A friend advised me to stay at Topsy Turvy, very good idea: very friendly owners,excellent restaurant tips,modern rooms, fantastic views, great breakfast. too cold to test the pool but looked very inviting. Really an ideal place to relax after a hard day of working.
Will go back.

Room Tip: The room at the far end corner of the building has a nice private terrace.

Again, I spent a week in the B&B Topsy-Turvy Somerset-West.

Knowing their are several good B&B's in this area, I prefer to stay in Topsy-Turvy.
Not only it's location but also the good-feeling with the guesthouse-owners Ritje and Eric are
my arguments to go back each-time.
You feel at home by them !

A perfect guesthouse - a nice location - amiable owners !

My husband and I and some friends booked all 5 of topsy turvy's rooms for the weekend in order to attend a friends wedding in February. We were excited to find that the rooms were modern and spacious with every amenity. The hosts were warm and hospitable, nothing was too much to ask for. The breakfasts were fresh and absolutely delicious with a home-made touch, but the best part of all was the heated swimming pool overlooking an incredible view. My husband and I loved it so much that we decided to stay an extra night! I can't wait for an excuse to go back!!
