It truly exceeded our expectations and was a perfect place to relax and explore the local area. Our room was fresh and bright with a magnificent view from two sides of the room, one looking on to the pool and the...

We had a late flight and only arrived at the guest house at 11 pm. Peter was very accommodating, making us feel welcome and safe at our arrival. The rooms are modern and well equipped.

Peter and Mai were very welcoming and friendly throughout our stay, suggesting day trips to see the local sights when we had no plans and printing us out maps for our travels. The guesthouse is in a secure location with great views of the surrounding area. Breakfast served daily at an agreed time with the rooms cleaned to a very...

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your positive Feedback. We don't take it for granted if somebody is investing time to write a review about our house. Of course, the business makes our living, but the real wage are such feedbags. We wish you all the best for the future. Kind Regards, Peter & Mai

I can honestly say that this is probably the best service I have ever had in a guest house. The guest house is lovely and spotlessly clean. The owners, Peter and Mia were absolutely professional. The view over false bay is simply stunning. The gardens are lovely and is a peaceful area to relax next to the swimming pool.

I spent a heavenly fortnight at Somerset Sights. The rooms are tastefully decorated, clean, comfortable and airy, with very comfy beds. Each room has a tv, a mini bar and direct access to the lovely gardens with pool. The view over false bay is stimply stunning, with a mountainrange on the left, Strand and ocean straight up and the bay...
