We had the most awesome two nights at Blaauwheim Guesthouse.
Every need catered for.
The breakfasts were amazing as were our hosts, Johan and Jo-Anne.
Will return when next in Cape Town.

Room Tip: We stayed in Pinotage which was stunning!

First of all the hosts are extremely helpful and kind. The large suites are beautiful decorated to the standards of a 5 star hotel. Comfortable settee, very good king size bed, superb bathroom with bath and spacious shower and an extra guest toilet. Many cupboards, wardrobes. Nice kitchenette etc..You name it, you have it. Everything very clean. Really perfect in every way. Almost forgot: a fabulous breakfast with a superb fruit salad !

We keep coming back! With our third stay at Blaauwheim Guesthouse and thanks to a kind upgrade this time we’ve now finished “touring” all three rooms. They are all excellent and deserve at least five stars. But we will be back for the five-star hospitality. To us Blaauwheim is the epitome of South African hospitality and an absolutely “worry free zone”. Johan and Jo-Anne do a wonderful job looking after you with the greatest naturalness which makes you feel very comfortable the moment you arrive.

3 room, five star rated, guest house in Somerset West. Lovely garden setting, with small pool area.

2 suites and one large bedroom on offer. We were upgraded to a suite, which was large and beautifully fitted, with a lounge/dining room and a full, built-in, self-catering kitchen as well as a separate bedroom and huge bathroom. Suite was immaculate, with quality fittings, comfy bed and all the extras you would expect from a 5 star property. We also had a huge balcony, with sofa and comfy chairs.

Breakfasts were spectacular, starting with a work of art fruit platter and extending to a range delicious cooked options.

Owners could not have been more accommodating throughout our stay. I was unwell whilst we were there and they went out of their way to help. Blauwheim was probably the most comfortable guest house we stayed in in SA this trip.

We will certainly use this venue again another trip.

Room Tip: All are excellent. 2 full suites - self catering and one large bedroom (B+B).

We stayed here at the beginning of our holiday and were so impressed that we returned the night before our flight home! Johan and Jo-Anne are such friendly hosts that it was like being at home. The room was beautifully appointed and the breakfast quite exceptional. We are sure to visit them again when we come back to Somerset West next year.
