A tranquil haven in the heart of the Cape Winelands, SomerZicht is an ideal destination for the discerning guest who appreciates privacy, style, comfort and unsurpassed hospitality.

We offer three luxury en-suite B&B rooms as well as two fully equipped Self Catering suites.

Somerset West offers a lively village ambiance – away from the crowds and noisy city life! But right on our doorstep you can enjoy world famous vineyards and award winning restaurants, relaxing beaches and the natural beauty of the Western Cape, or play a round of golf on one of the many renowned golf courses in the surrounding area.

Both the B&B rooms and the Self Catering suites are spacious and stylishly decorated to create a relaxing ambience. The focus being on quality furnishings, comfortable beds and modern bathroom fittings. All have a private outdoor area which allows our guests to fully enjoy the wonderful weather and balmy evenings.

SomerZicht is protected from the prevailing Cape summer winds and caters for individual travellers and small groups. We endeavour to provide the best possible service at affordable rates. Our B&B rates include a hearty breakfast in the breakfast room or, weather permitting, on the patio with magnificent mountain views. Guests are welcome to use the large communal lounge which flows onto the patio or to relax around the sparkling pool.

New owners, Jörg Grotegut and Petra Halstenberg, left the cool north of Germany to settle in Somerset West, near Cape Town. Years ago we fell in love with the breathtakingly beautiful country, the friendly people and the culture. We would now like to pass this on to our guests and ensure an unforgettable stay at SomerZicht.

We will gladly provide you with information on day trips to some of the most scenic sites in South Africa, book a round of golf for you or assist with restaurant and day trip reservations.
