About Somerset Hill Guest House

Whether you are planning a relaxing holiday to escape and unwind, or a trip packed with adventure and new experiences, Somerset Hill is the perfect choice of accommodation for your holiday in the Cape.

You will find the Somerset Hill Guest House nestled on the slopes of Somerset West with an almost endless view of False Bay, mountain ranges and the Indian Ocean. Picturesque Somerset West lies in the heart of the Western Cape, only a 30 min drive from Cape Town and is reputed to be one of the most beautiful residential areas of the Cape Peninsula. It is also in close proximity to the well known Erinvale Golf Club, the Helderberg Nature Reserve and renowned Vergelegen, one of the Cape’s most historic wine estates.

Start each day like a holiday and enjoy a sumptuous breakfast in our tranquil garden. Sip a drink in our lounge after a long day of playing golf or sightseeing, or relax at the pool-side on an inviting sun-lounger, then refresh yourself with an invigorating dip in our crystalline swimming pool.

Our philosophy is simple – we would like to assist you in every way to make your stay in the Cape as memorable as possible. Of course this might not induce you to emigrate to South Africa as we did, but we hope that you will return again and again to enjoy pleasant holidays in this fair land.

Accommodation

There is a choice of eight exclusive, spacious and beautifully appointed bedrooms – each with en-suite bathroom, air condition, terrace or balcony, as well as satellite TV, WiFi access, mini-bar and telephone on request. Enjoy the spectacular view across False Bay, Gordon’s Bay and the mountains from our ocean facing suites, or savour the tranquillity of our Garden Suites with a view on to the quiet splendour of our South African Garden.

Our rooms boast a soothing combination of European comfort and African flair. You will find they are lovingly decorated with attention to detail, complementing the beauty of the Cape and welcoming you to unwind and relax after an adventurous day of sightseeing and exploring.

Services & Facilities

Bask in the peace and security of one of the most exclusive residential areas of the Cape Peninsula. Our German management offers a variety of hospitality services to enhance your stay with us – ranging from organizing airport shuttle service, arrangement of entire golf tours, to calling on our certified physiotherapist for a relaxing in-house massage – nothing will be too much trouble to make you feel right at home.

Activities & Attractions

Not only does Somerset Hill Guest House offer you home comforts and German hospitality in breathtaking surroundings, it is also ideally situated for you to make the most of the fantastic activities, leisure options and day trips the Cape has to offer.

Somerset Hill is in easy travelling distance to some of the most beautiful destinations South Africa has to offer. You will find famous wine farms in close proximity, boasting world-class wines and fine restaurants; as well as spectacular walking and mountain-biking trails. The golden sands of numerous beaches on the Atlantic or Indian Ocean side are also close at hand.

A short trip will take you to the famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town, where you can shop to your heart’s content. Pay a visit to the Two Oceans Aquarium or take a boat-ride out to Robben Island, the legendary prison of Nelson Mandela.

Take time out for an excursion to Cape Point, the Cape of Good Hope, with a stop over at the Cape Point Ostrich farm or visit the penguins at Boulders Beach. Or you could go on a day trip along the famous Garden Route, one of the 4 most picturesque “road trips” of the world and while away the afternoon in Hermanus, one of the best “whale watching” points on this planet.
