We had a really good time at AlphaBed B&B. The place is lovely and clean and nice decorated. The owners made our stay very helpfull because they gave us all kind of tips where to go. We really like to come back to South Africa and would love to stay here again! Family Fine from the Netherlands

Very neat and cosy accomodation. Although the room was not huge it sufficed for our stay. Patrons are very friendly and there was also space available for our bicycles. Best Muesli I have ever had! Highly recommendable. Were delayed at the airport and had to check in later than scheduled and owners were very accommodating. They had recommended good restaurants...

Well located in a quiet and safe neighbourhood of Summerset West. We occupied the upstairs guestroom, which is very large, for 3 nights. Carine is a wonderful host, really going out of her way to accommodate and help guests. Great breakfast.

We promised that we would return, but never thought that we would actually do it. Especially not 1 year after our first visit. AlphaBed is conveniently close to the airport (KLM flights from Amsterdam arrive late in the evening), and to the winelands & to Cape Town centre.
