False Bay View
Ranked #45 of 81 Somerset West B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 April 2013

If you think the reviews of this guesthouse are too good to be true, you are mistaken. This is a gem of a discovery. (Thanks once again to Tripadvisor reviewers!) We have just spent 4 splendid days in this part of the Western Cape - made all the more wonderful by our stay @False Bay View. WOW! What charmingly warm, generous and kind hosts Francois & Katinka are. The quiet and comfort of the accommodation they provide and the level of hospitality in their services is top notch. Special mention must be made of Katinka's breakfasts: delicious works of art, as my photos show. Somerset West is perfectly positioned for exploring the False Bay coast, Hermanus and surrounds and of course, the winelands. And the guesthouse is ideally located to facilitate access to these destinations. Bravo!

Room Tip: Both rooms are exquisite and offer the views as advertised: mountains or sea.

Nice comfortable spacious accommodation. Very generous breakfast, and good value for money. The rooms are on the top floor, and the stairs to the rooms may be an issue for older or mobility impaired guests. However, the stairs ensure a great view.

This gorgeous place is a 2 story house with the guest accommodation on the top floor. There are 4 bedrooms plus a dining room and lounge and kitchen (toaster, microwave, coffee maker, frige and dishes). The view from these windows is superb and it's lovely to just sit and admire the view. Our bedroom was quite large so we had plenty of space to spread out. Breakfast each morning was brought up to the dining room for us and each day it was different--eggs, bacon etc on Sunday and mushroom/ham crepe on Monday. Both were very good and served with fresh fruit and toast as well as fresh made coffee. I will be telling my friends about this great find. It really is a home away from home. Oh, and by the way, it was the best sleep we have had in the 3 weeks we've been travelling around South Africa.
