What an unbelievable attention to service and client comfort. This is a guest house that could be used as a blue print for what the hospitality industry should be aiming at.

My experience with guest houses has been lousy. When the Somerset West Cape Tour Office lady by the name of Mischka said to me "don't worry, I'll find you the best" a little voice in me said "yeah right".

This is the only five star accommodation in the Somerset West area and definitely deserves its grading.

Owners are 100% involved with the business and one can tell that from hospitality, and overall look an feel of the establishment. Breakfast was awesome and the general knowledge of the owners about the area helped me make great choises of where to go and what route to take. Overall awesome experience.

We stayed at Blaauwheim for two nights over Des 2014 and where highly impressed with the accommodation. The guest house is close to the airport and Stellenbosch wine route. Johan and his wife handled us as friends and not as people staying over. The accommodation is of very high standard with what ever you require.

Dear Thys Blaauwheim has this strange effect on people: strangers become friends! But friendship has to come from two sides, Thys.
