Reinette is a warm host , who does a smashing breakfast! The rooms are great, the bed was wonderful after 8 hours on the road. Nothing was to much trouble, even recommending and booking a wonderful restaurant for the evening. I have been back once and will return every time I am passing through.

Reinette's personal attention made us feel so welcome. Great restaurant recommendation (with a booking on our behalf). Accommodation was excellent - and the breakfast just wonderful. The best was the fascinating history - an amazing collection of items of historical significance...and the stories that go with them! Fascinating! And what a lovely garden!! We will undoubetly return!! Thank you, Reinette for a lovely stay!

In January we staydedfor the third time in this lovely guesthouse. We had a Belgian friend, Prof Walter Pintens, with us and we all thoroughly enjoyed the stay: Friendly hostess; impeccably clean, comfortable and beautiful rooms; good sercive and an excellent breakfast. Graaf-Reinet becomes even moer attractive after a stay at this guest-house.

What a pleasant surprise it was to find this place! We arrived in Graaff-Reinet without a reservation but were readily welcomed by a gracious and friendly hostess. The stay itself in a beautifully appointed room was wonderful> By the time we left the next morning Reinette the owner felt like family. Somerset Stables is highly reccommended and we will definitely be back!

We enjoyed a lovely stay at Somerset Stables. Reinette was very welcoming, and accommodated our every need. The double room we stayed in was perfectly adequate and very clean. The breakfast in the morning was held in her historic 'stable' house, with amazing relics from days gone by - a museum in itself. Would recommend it.

An unexpected little gem. The accomodation was spacious, well appointed and charmingly decorated. We were made to feel very welcome by Reinette and the breakfast was excellent and served in her period dining room. The honey from her own bees in her own garden was a real bonus.
