Reviewed 13 February 2011

We (couple with baby of 7 months) stayed with Alphabed one week at the end of January 2011. Our intention was to fly away from the European winter and enjoy a relaxing week in the south-african summer. Our expectation has been met 100%: The family suite in Alphabed is very comfortable, Natalie provides a tasty breakfast and the nice pool-/garden area has given us the opportunity to relax between our various touristic activities. If you look for an ideal starting point for day-trips to Capetown and food-/wine excursions to the Wineland (fantastic wineries are really nearby and Stellenbosch only 20 minutes away), Alphabed is first choice in Somerset West.

We stayed during our last days of holiday at this place with our small children (13,11 en 5) and it was really nice. We were charmed by the hospitality and good advices of this family and our children by the fact that they finaly understood the language.
The place is nice and well-situated for a visit of the wine-properties and the surroundings of Cape town.

We were the first day of our trip in South Africa in this b&b. This location was so good that we had decided to go back for three days due to the volcano explosion.
Nathalie was a very good hostess. Rooms were very well. Breakfast was splendid.

I would recommend this b&b to everyone.

Very friendly people, lovely kids, too. Good breakfast. The kids loved the pool.
Walking distance to Somerset West shops, short drive to lovely Strand Beach, Stellenbosch and fast and easy access to Cape Town, too. Plenty of nice restaurants nearby, even walking distance. Henri's was very good.
Truly enjoyed our stay here, much better value than posh hotels. Will most probably come back when next time in Somerset West.

The family run B&B is situated in a leafy avenue off the main road through Somerset West. This situation provides a good base to visit the winelands & the coast to Hermanus. It is also only half a hours drive from CapeTown airport.

Last February we stayed 4 nights at this great place. We had the room on the first floor which is the largest room from this B&B. This room is absolutely huge, with a separate living area. The room was clean, recently renovated, with a nice styling. It really felt like home. The rest of the house is in an excellent condition as well. The garden is nice and sunny with a beautiful view on the nearby hills.

The owner had a personal approach, friendly and assisted us with local travel tips. She made a delicious breakfast.

The house is located in a quiet area with an automatic gate. It felt safe. We enjoyed the area around Sommerset West. Try the new local Waterkloof restaurant, it is a top-notch place. Brilliant.
