“Lovely, high-quality B&B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

I stayed 2 nights in April 2014 and must say my room was very nice and had a great shower. There was some noise from the corridor which woke me but it's an old building so I don't see how that could be addressed really and it wasn't anything I couldn't cope with.

The pool was great too and I spent a few hours chilling and swimming.

Overall I'd recommend the Villa and would definitely stay there again if I went back.

Beautiful surroundings, welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff make this our home away when we return to CapeTown. Situated next to the wineries around Stellenbosch and close to Airport. Best value on our trip to South Africa.

The Somerset Villa Guesthouse is an absolute gem situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands...and I recommend it wholeheartedly. From the minute you are welcomed by Jurg, Rocco and team you realise that this place is special.

Our family room was spacious, neat and well furnished with all that was required, including a small fridge for personal use and a private patio area. The guesthouse pool and the garden area was perfect for late afternoon swims and relaxation with a glass of wine.

Breakfasts were wholesome and served in an airy dining room or on the patio. The wide range of dishes provided all the energy needed to travel in and around this beautiful part of the world.

It was the hospitality of Jurg, Rocco, Graeme and the staff that impressed me most. No request was refused and they helped out as much as possible to make our stay enjoyable. This included supplying eating utensils for visitors who joined us for braai's in the evening and doing washing over the 15 days that we stayed there.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Somerset Villas and look forward to visiting again…

The guesthouse is in town, but very quiet with a beautiful garden. Jan and his Team were very friendly and helpful to plan trips and Restaurants. The reception area is very nice to relax. An excellent place to start wine tours.
