Great stay at AlphaBed. Swiss elegance. Comfy room with large bathroom. DSTV and WiFi. Ideal for those wanting to be outside the busy city of Cape Town. Close proximity to the main highways and easy access to Stellenbosch wine routes.

Friendly welcome and wonderful three nights's stay. Breakfasts superb as was location, suite and pool. Near to excellent restaurants. Wish we had stayed longer. Visited Cape town waterfront. Easy run but heavy traffic. Somerset shopping Mall one of the best! Also very nice Waterstone shopping Mall.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This charming thatched roof bed and breakfast is the perfect base from which to explore and enjoy South Africa's lush Cape Winelands and the many major attractions of Cape Town. The guesthouse offers three stylish rooms, each room boasts en-suite bathrooms and a patio/lounge overlooking the swimming pool and the beautiful garden. A large suite of two rooms, privately situated on the first floor, can be booked to accommodate up to 4 people. AlphaBed is situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands, in the beautiful city of Somerset West nestled under the majestic Helderberg Mountain. The town overlooks the beaches of the False Bay, offers nice mountain views and gives easy access to the Winelands, Cape Town and the peninsula. We are surrounded by top quality wine and golf estates. South Africa's oldest wine estate VERGELEGEN and the prestigious ERINVALE Golf Club are at 2km from the guesthouse. Scenic routes take you to the other Cape Wineland towns as Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek. Whale watching in Hermanus and tours to the townships are easily arranged from our guesthouse. ... more   less
