Absolutely delightful and very comfortable house, with charming hosts
This is a real find , every detail has been thought of and the breakfasts are delicious and so beautifully presented- including wonderful home grown tomatoes.Worth a detour from anywhere! The garden setting is perfect and has been designed to give everyone special places to retreat and relax.in
It is in a lovely quiet area above the hustle and bustle of the town but near enough to easily get to the local attractions.
I wont say much more so too many people don't find out about this perfect paradise. Hi Marco! Hi Mario! Hi Elphas! Miss you all and breakfast too.
WOW! No words to describe how amazing this stay was...
Look no further for accommodation in Somerset West or the Cape Town Region for that matter. We’re compelled to share our wonderful experience at the Villa Adelbert. Mario and Marco are the most welcoming, hospitable and gracious of hosts. It is clear they have a passion for what they do and have mastered the art of the bed and breakfast on their beautiful property. No detail is left unattended.
Never before have we felt so welcome, taken care of and valued on our travels. We stayed two nights in the studio lavender cottage, which has been exquisitely decorated with the most lovely touches. The king size bed with high quality bedding was a dream to sleep on. The reading room in our cottage has a large dresser, and a fridge stocked with beer, wine, snacks etc. There was even a courtesy carafe of brandy to enjoy. A custom breakfast is provided each morning on a different place on the property. Omelettes, bacon, fruit platters, are only a small sample of what is offered. Our breakfasts here were better than anywhere we’ve travelled.
We were given great advice on local attractions and activities. Mario printed maps and helped us determine what to do during our short time in the winelands region and literally thought of every detail.
The wi-fi signal is strong throughout the entire property and internet speed is lightning fast.
The overall cleanliness and state of the accommodation and property in general is nothing short of impeccable. The grounds/garden area are well manicured and visited by many species of bird. Villa Adelbert is a perfectly tranquil oasis that we will fondly remember always.
Two nights is much too short of a stay here and much too short to fully experience the region. Had we known of this jewel when planning our trip to South Africa we would have stayed much longer.
We hope to be back again!
Thank you again Mario and Marco!

Dear Chad & Ashley
Thank you for your beautiful review and for choosing our guesthouse.

A slice of heaven on Earth
This B&B gem is a tranquil oasis in Somerset West, a mere 30 minutes from Cape Town and 15 minutes from the False Bay beaches. Owners, Marco and Mario, have created a slice of heaven where guests are able to revel in the quiet of a beautifully manicured garden featuring ponds and bird baths, a lovely garden folley-come-breakfast room, plenty of secluded nooks with comfortable seating throughout the outdoor areas, and a swimming pool situated in a quiet back corner of the property.
My partner and I stayed 5 nights in the artists studio overlooking the Helderberg Mountains. The attention to detail evidenced throughout the property continues in the main house and in the lodge with beautifully appointed furniture, artwork, crisp Italian linens, a private reading room with espresso machine and assorted drinks and snacks.
If this were not enough, the spectacular hospitality and breakfasts prepared by Mario and Marco are off the charts, with a large selection of traditional homemade breakfast options, all done with amazing attention to detail, perfectly so. Having stayed at some of the top boutique hotels in Cape Town, I would venture to say that this is my number one take on luxury lodging in the area, distinguished largely by the enveloping service rendered by the owners.
It has been a lovely experience to have Marguerite and Martin as our guests. We loved their exquisite kindness, their love for travelling, exchanging experiences and be part of the place where they stay. We spent some time together and it was one of the best moment experienced ever. Thanks Marguerite and Martin, we hope to have you back soon !
