My sister helped booking me trip to Cape Town with my children. The booking was confirmed and accepted. I got an email from Rooms for Africa and one that night from Mooring House confirming my stay.

What more can you ask for wine and golf 10 minutes down the road. A fantastic place to spend a relaxing holiday with hosts who go that extra mile to make your stay something you will always remember. We are looking forward to our return in 2016.

We have just spent 1 month at Mooring house and had an amazing time. Gary and Miriam did everything possible to make our holiday so amazing. Fantastic Location for golf and visiting all the local wineries and restaurants.

We went to the Somerset West Info. There the places we want are all fully booked. But my partner helps the woman in the info and finds herself a B and B the Mooring House, not far from the info in Somerset West, on mayfair. Sounds good. And good price, 41 euro!

Poor service and follow up. We booked accommodation through the website and over the phone, gave our credit card details by email. Something went wrong with the credit card, and the owners just cancelled, without informing us - we called a few days ahead and got fobbed off with an email telling us they thought the reservation was made "obsolete"....

We agree with all the other reviews that this has been the happiest and friendliest place we have stayed in South Africa. Gary and Miriam made us welcome from the moment we arrived. We could not buy wine on a Sunday so Miriam gave us a bottle. Gary came over later to say it was not good enough for us... More

We were three people staying at Mooring House and it exceeded every expectation. As employees of a charitable organisation, we have to search far and wide to find such a great find as Mooring House. We all had seperate spacious beautifully decorated rooms, but could sit and work together due to the lounge area in the one section. The breakfast... More

We were 2 couples. We stayed at Mooring House for 2 weeks in January 2012. We loved the accommodation (2 self-catering garden-facing rooms, spacious with all your need). The garden was great and very beautiful with different areas to sit and relax or take a swim in the pool. A typical South African Braie evening was organised by Garry and... More

Staying at the Mooring House was more than the cherry on the top and made our whole visit to Somerset West a very special one. A dreamy garden and Garry, Miriam and family we really hope to see again.
