Hard to find any more superlatives to describe our stay this year. Great B&Bs have hands on hosts, superb, beautifully clean accommodation, a pleasant location and excellent breakfasts. Blaauwheim ticks all of these boxes, which is why we return, year on year. I have referred in the past to the CAT who runs the place and the daily entertainment of...

What can I say?! This guest house was nothing short of amazing and we've traveled a lot. Gorgeous house and great location, stayed in a big suite with a balcony, was richly and beautifully decorated with a comfortable bed, high shower pressure, fast wifi, cold AC, and even a complimentary nightcap. The grounds were green and peaceful and I could...

My wife and I stayed 4 nights at the Blaauwheim, 1 night in the Shiraz Double, and 3 in the Pinotage suite. Everything about the stay was fantastic. As another reviewer noted, I too travel often for business, and have stayed at many very nice hotels, and this is definitely at the top. I can find at least one fault...

Blaauwheim Guest House is located perfectly for exploring Cape Town and the Cape Winelands. We had the opportunity to stay in both the Shiraz deluxe double room and the Pinotage suite and we loved both. The whole guesthouse is spotless, well organized, and the beds are so comfortable that you'll struggle to pull yourself away! Johan and Jo-Anne provide an...

We stayed at Blaauwheim for 12 days in January 2016. I travel all over the world, both for business and on vacation and I can truly say that this is the nicest place I have stayed in.

This is our second visit to stay with Johan and Jo-Anne and they are simply brilliant.

We carefully chose Blaauwheim Guest House from a wide selection of guest houses in Somerset West and on our arrival were delighted with our choice. The directions provided by the owners were fool proof, just a couple of Kms off the N2. Johan and Jo-Anne were superb hosts, greeting us on our arrival, making us feel very welcome. The house...
