The owner and his wife are really welcoming and do what ever to assist you. The premies are really in good shape with a lovely garden and a fairly large pool. The place overlooks Sumerset West and False Bay. Lovely restaurangs on walking distance in a safe environment. It is just 30 minutes from Capetown but in a small town... More

we spent two nights at Winkfield, a very nice place. Katharina was very helpful and made excellent breakfast. Next time we go to SA we might stay for a longer period. Only drawback was a slow internet connection.....

Imagine this; sitting and watching the panorama of the sunset over the Cape Peninsula, with a beautiful garden and a swimming pool below you. At the same time having a feeling of being in a totally exclusive world, with no distractions except an occasional pigeon. Behind you is this cosy standard double room that accommodates all your expectations for privacy... More

From the moment we arrived, ahead of the New Year, Robert & Katherina ensured that our stay met all our expectations. It started well with a welcoming (free) drink when we could chat about the location and the places to go and avoid, nearby. The location is excellent, 30 minutes from central Cape Town. The airport is even closer and... More

Been there for a day on our way to the Garden Route. It's really an outstanding B&B with a nice garden, a great pool and clean and spacious rooms. The friendly hosts showed hospitality, personal interest and were always ready to help you with any matter. Full recommendation, could relax there for days.

A very good place to stay at in Somerset West. Simply the perfect place. People afraid of dogs shall perhaps look elsewhere, or just warn ahead that you are afraid. The rooms are perfect, very clean and high standard. Very nice common areas. Really nice garden. I went here for business trip, but would not hesitate to stay there for... More

At Winkfield is my favorite place to stay in Cape Town. It is well located at just 5 minutes from the highway and a shopping mall. The rooms are huge and serviced everyday. The wifi is fast and always working. And the owners are so friendly and helpful. Will gladly stay there everytime I go to Cape Town.

This Hotel is always my preference when I visit the Cape Town Area. The owner is just like an old friend. . . we catch up when I'm back. Robert spends quality time with me as if I am part of the family. The excellent and clean environment is just the start of a very restful and refreshing experience. Breakfast... More
