“Quiet, peaceful and wonderful service”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Our first few nights in South Africa were spent at this pretty little guest house in Somerset West, with a view of the Helderberg mountains. The very friendly manager and staff were lovely, and we enjoyed chatting with them and visiting with the resident dogs. The beautiful courtyard and garden spaces are well maintained, and the pool area would be lovely in the warmer months. Our room was not particularly modern, but charming, clean and spacious with it's own bath, kitchenette and outdoor sitting area. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful, served in the cosy dining area with a crackling wood fire nearby. I would certainly return here for another stay.

What a great weekend filled with happy and friendly staff, stunning surroundings and truly magnificent surroundings close to everything we needed and we really were able to enjoy our weekend getaway, we would really like to come back in summer to take advantage of the pristine pool area

A wonderful, warm, conveniently located Guest House. So peaceful, a lovely garden and swimming pool. The staff at Albourne went the extra mile to my stay great, they were always friendly and helpful. Lovely comfortable accommodation, and close to everything! Cant wait to come back, a really memorable experience, it felt like coming home!

Very nice, good value for money but did not like single beds pushed together. Website states double beds yet we were told all rooms have single beds when we asked about this. Found this very disappointing.

A warm welcome to this beautiful Guest House , at the foot end of the Helderberg Mountains! Our stay was just perfect! We particularly enjoyed our "cottage" accommodation which felt secluded and private, set in beautiful gardens. The lawns and gardens are pristine and the sparkling pool adds to the setting. The cosy fireplaces add a romantic touch ! Enjoy the lounges whilst reading and sipping on a sherry. Mareaze is a gem and has created a classic beauty at Albourne Guest House ! The breakfast are scrumptious and made with the freshest herbs from the garden ! The service and attention to detail is great ! This Guest House is a mere 5 min drive to a stunning Golf Course and various famous wine estates, like , Vergelegen wine estate - We will return soon !

Room Tip: Ask for the Luxury Garden Suite ! All parking is secure at Albourne Guest House.

This guest house is about 20 minutes outside of Capetown and centrally located for the Stellenbosch wine region as well as the Garden Route. It is beautiful, staff is friendly and there are many restaurants and wineries near by. The manager, Mareaze, is one of those special people who makes everyone feel welcome. She strolls through the breakfast tables chatting and making sure everything is perfect.
The rooms in Albourne House are clean, spacious and each has it's on bath and outdoor sitting area. The pool, while very pretty was not needed as there was too much to do and see in South Africa.
Thank you Mareaze for a wonderful stay!

Welcoming, profesional service, great location, comfortable and clean rooms, and an ultimately relaxing environment. New and dynamic management, upgraded furnishing and super value for money, for business and holliday accomodation. Will be back soon!
