“Very comfortable and relaxing”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

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.

I spent 5 days in Cape Town recently from 21 March 2014 to 26 March 2014. Booking was done on line. V good. booking in to my room was also good. Hospitality fairly good. Location is pretty good & easy to find. Venue is private & after hours arrivals effortless. Breakfasts combination of continental & English-Not bad at all. Room was clean, bathroom was superb which I enjoyed. Safe area. I did'nt like the parking area though. Could pose problems if there are more than 4 cars. I really have No real concerns here & would recommend this establishment.

Room Tip: single room downstairs near the kitchen, v good.I didn't like the painted floor though.

This guest house was the most ideal way to start our holiday in South Africa. Carine, the manager, makes the stay in a perfect setting, very relaxing. The rooms were a good size and clean, very varied breakfast choices, lovely sized, clean pool. The help Carine gave us to book restaurants, chase up booked tickets, made our holiday stay special. I was also grateful of processions we left behind were safely returned to us. Strangely there has been no review since last April 2013 but I hope to change this.

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 km from Leuven. A good start to a wonderful trip in the Little Karoo and along the Garden Route.

We were looking for a nice place not too far from the airport and we found it at AlphaBed. Nathalie gave us a very warm welcome. The room was beautiful and overlooking the garden and the pool. We enjoyed the breakfast on the veranda in the morning. We can recommend it very much and it is a place to go back.

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 garden, she volunteered to make our restaurant reservations. The rooms were to die for and my bathroom was out of this world. Small little add ons make the difference, the Belguim chocolate, the little jar of Jacobs coffee to help you face the morning. The breakfast was great and the ambience of the roaring fire [in April!] in the kitchen/breakfast room was a surprising treat.

Everything from the moment we arrived to when we reluctantly had to move on was fantastic.

We are planning our return, business or not!!!

Room Tip: I think it was room one - they only have three rooms but it is the closest to the dining area.

Alphabed B&B was our first contact with South-Africa - we arrived late at night after a long flight from Amsterdam and a first try at driving left. Nathalie & Chris gave us a warm welcome and showed us to their cosy family suite - a room for us and an even more comfortable room for our daughters (they got the chocolates). Next morning we had a delicious breakfast, while Nathalie introduced us to the neighborhood, and her daughters charmed our's. We stayed four nights at Alphabed, touring the coast and the Winelands. Nathalie pointed us, amongst others, to a wonderful beach (Dapat se gat) and pinguins without tourists (Betty's Bay). Our girls of course liked Alphabed's swimming pool, for them a bigger attraction than a famous winery. So yes, we very much enjoyed Alphabed and will gladly return there, given the chance.
