We stayed in the Chardonnay Suite which has a little balcony with a nice sofa and a great view into the garden and the mountains. The suite is very generous in size and nicely furnished in soft colors. It really looked like the pictures on the internet – no creative photography involved! The bed was very comfortable and the air con a great plus at the end of a hot day. The suite has a living room with large sofas and a tv, a fully equipped kitchen (with refrigerator/freezer combination like you would have it at home) on one wall and a dining room table with 4 comfortable chairs in the other corner. There is a lot of storage space in the bedroom. The suit has a big bathroom with both shower and bathtub and another separate toilet. The only minor irritation was maybe the very busy road just behind the house which spoiled the serene view of the mountains with traffic noise.
The breakfast on the terrace provided a nice selection of everything you might want for breakfast and in addition a chat with the owners. Internet is available and you can settle your bill with credit card. There is also a small pool in a court yard and some sun chairs.
The Blaauwheim Guest House is situated only 20 min from Cape Town International Airport and very easy to find. The area is apparently great for golfing – we were only on our way through so didn’t really explore all the things you can do in the Somerset West area. The owners were very flexible to let us stay for only one night minimum-stay policy.
We felt very welcome at the Blaauwheim Guest House. They fully deserve all the good reviews on Tripadvisor.
