Somerset Hill Guesthouse is nestled on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain in Somerset West, with a far-stretching vista of False Bay and the Hottentots-Holland mountain range.
The team at Somerset Hill has been in the Hospitality and Tourism industry for many years. Originally from France, my parents and I decided to experience a new adventure together. I had worked for a French Tour Operator in Cape Town for four years and Laurence & Renaud, my parents, had owned a restaurant in France, which operated for 30 years. We have combined our hospitality and tourism skills and experience gained both in Europe and Cape Town to make our guests’ stay as memorable as possible by offering each one personalized service.
We hope to see you soon!
Violaine, Laurence & Renaud
