Somerset Sights B&B
Ranked #24 of 81 Somerset West B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 3, 2013

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 to the right. On some days you can even see the cape.

Since the B&B only has 4 rooms (3 of which in the main house), the atmosphere is quiet and familiar in a very good way. You can have your privacy or a chat, whatever you feel like. Peter and Mai are great hosts, most friendly and accomodating; nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them and they were always there to help out with pointers on restaurants, sights, golf courses, vineyards, trips or anything else that might interest you.

The daily breakfast is simply yummy and caters to every taste (be it eggs and bacon, toast and yam or greek yoghurt with honey, granola and a selection of delicious fruits...). The time was very agreeable, too: 9-11 am :-)

A few random infos:
- The B&B is situated in an estate, so it's very safe and that's exactly how I felt.
- Due to its location, a car or some other form of transport would be good to get around.
- One evening Mai cooked Thai food for us - simply divine!
- There are two dogs, both very well educated and unintrusive.
- The Helderberg and its nature reserve are just around the corner, great for hiking.
- There are many good restaurants and golf courses in the area.

I can highly recommend Somerset Sights and am looking forward to returning. Soon, hopefully.

Room Tip: The two rooms overlooking the bay are a little larger and more airy than the third one in the main h...
