“Best price for the value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

Soete Huys is the most charming Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed at. Nancy and Reg are the nicest couple and make you feel like you are family. They make your visit an enjoyable and comfortable as possible. They will even make dinner reservations for you. My husband and I stayed there for one night at the end of March and fell in love with the place. We wish you we could have stayed longer.
It is also important to note, that the proceeds from this B&B directly help the local township. It feels good to know that while paying for accommodation you are also helping the local population.

We ended our family holiday in Wellington, and were sorry we had not planned more days at Soete Huys. Nancy and Reg are fantastic people, who went the extra mile to make our stay comfortable. My little granddaughter fell in love with Salem, the dog, and she soon took to Nancy and Reg as well. Nancy, thank you for returning "skilpad" safetly back to Anabelle. You will definitely be on our list should we travel that way again. The pool was devine after the hot days wandering through the beautiful wine estates.

We attended a wedding in Wellington and needed somewhere to rest our weary heads that would not be "upsetting" to other guests if we should amble to our rooms at 2am in the morning.
Soete Huys was just the perfect place! All the rooms had enough privacy and space to ensure that no one felt "disturbed" by anyone else. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious, beautifully furnished and immaculately clean.
The owners, Reg and Nancy are the most perfectly charming hosts and went the proverbial "extra mile" to ensure our stay was restful and that all our needs were met.
Soete Huys provided every one & more of our requirements. We will not hesitate in recommending their establishment most highly. We will surely return and spend a much longer time at this superbly friendly, relaxing and tranquil haven.

Recently, on a very cold and rainy day in what is supposed to be in the middle of summer, we were greeted with open arms, a welcome umbrella and Nancy's freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies! Soete Huys proved to be exactly that, a sweet place to rest our weary heads.
Our room was spacious and clean and offered all the amenities we needed. It is located on the outskirts of town with a beautiful view over the valley. The garden was well-groomed and the pool clean - although we felt no need to use it on this occasion!
Our hosts, Nancy and Reg, have oodles of warmth and small-town hospitalilty. What a pity we could not stay longer! I recommend this to anyone who needs a quiet and beautiful place to stay and be pampered!

my wife and I stayed at Soete huis in late November and found the following:
The rooms were very clean and charming with stunning view over the valley towards the town.
Nancy and Reg are exceptionally friendly people and one feels as if you are staying at home and not a guest house. even their friendly dog is on hand to greet one.
The breakfast was great and they serve a traditional American style breakfast including hash browns. one of the few places that understand how to make a decent egg.
I highly recommend anyone to give this charming venue a try.

My family and I stayed for several days. We all fell in love with Salem-the-wonder-dog. Had we known what a treat it would be we would have planned to stay longer. Now we know. The proprietors are a great balance between friendliness and giving space to relax. We felt a part of what was going on, for example we were invited to a braii, had tips on local goings-on and had a great time interacting with other guests. Do you like photography? This place is GREAT! We did many day-trips. Would have included more pix but only space for three. Leave the leaf-covered, brick drive to the right and your in town. Go left for adventure and mountains. Hmm, which will you choose? We can't wait to go back.

Soetehuys is a real gem run by a very friendly and loving American couple.
My wife and I and our 2 children where made to feel extremely welcome and comfortable in the cottage and our children loved the rolling lawns and sparkling swimming pool while we appreciated the spectacular sunsets from our loungers.
We will definately be back.
