Arrived before check in, but the host took my luggage in without a problem. The house has an amazing atmosphere and the wooden floors are stunning. The one night I stayed there was peaceful and very relaxed.

I stayed at Winkfield House from the 09-23th December 2012 for my holidays before the world ends ;-) The look and feel of it is homely and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the breakfast buffet is great (I love your fruit salad), the rooms are spacious and as a bonus, you get a splendid view to False Bay. It is close to the heart of Somerset West where everything is close by and easily accessible. Great place for spending my holidays. Thank you Robert and staff for making my stay so enjoyable – Christian

I found this place to be Comfortable, in pleasant surroundings: a real upmarket B n B. Good breakfast and attentive hosts made you feel at home. It is close to all amenities and main routes.

Attention to detail with special provision for German tenants is a plus. A good place for business or a couple needing a base to operate from in Somerset West.

This is a guesthouse that combines luxury with affordability. We were met by very friendly staff who went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms were tastefully furnished, very neat and provided for all our needs. Some of us spent a relaxing time after breakfast in the beautiful garden while others lounged on the spacious dek outside the dining area overlooking Gordons Bay. This guest house is highly recommended.

We have seen several of guest house and lodges whilst traveling South Africa, but this one is most remarkable. Best situated in Somerset West, just below helderberg mountains, only 15 driving mins away from Winelands like Stellenbosch and also some of the best golf courses in the region. Cape Town easy via N2 in some 30 mins. Guest house is light up the hill with a spectacular grand view over False Bay up to Cape of Good Hope from cozy terrace and even some of the rooms ! Also a really great swimming pool, including a warm sweet water shower. Very nice gardens to relax also. Advertising of guest house is, of course like some others, "you come as guest and you´ll leave as friend" but to be honest, it´s really like that ! Dani and Robby are extraordinary friendly hosts and they will make nearly everything to make the stay as comfortable as possible. We stayed 6 nights in "Coral room" (its one of those with Cape of Good Hope view). Nice spacious room, great view, really big bathroom with bathtub, shower, bidet, toilette.
All in all a valuable stay !
