“What a stroke of luck to have stayed here with warmhearted, and most helpful
Miriam and Garry.”   Staying at the Mooring House was more than the cherry on
the top and made our whole visit to Somerset West a very special one. A dreamy
garden and Garry, Miriam and family we really hope to see again.

Received friendly by owners Garry & Miriam. Rooms very spacious and neat.
Setting of guest rooms in garden did wonders to relax after a long journey. Will
definitely make use of their services in future. Will also recommend them to
anybody that visits Somerset West.

Hi Garry, Miriam and all the family,  
We would like to consider coming back to stay with you in 2011.
We were very happy in our garden room and were wondering how we would be

We have been now back several times at Mooring House Guest House because
every time it is again like our first stay which was already unforgettable in the
comfortable apartments and the beautiful scenery of the Helderberg with Miriam
and Garry as great hosts. The whole family is lovely and we are always leaving
after several weeks with great regrets and the promise soon to be back.

Good room, excellent service, nice view over false bay,near to wine good
eating and golf, February 18 2009  (RETURNED in FEB 2010)
Reviewer: Mr Ronnquist (Sweden)

The room was good with a nice view over False Bay. The service was excellent
and the owners are very friendly people. The Mooring house is located near
to the cape wine district with all what that entails with good food and good
wines. From the Mooring house one can also reach a good number of nice golf
courses. The Mooring House is close to the Cape Town airport and easy to
find. The price level of the rooms are also attractive. In total I can
indeed recommend the Moring House to my best friends.
 
     
"The Mooring House Guest Lodge is ideally located in a quiet and secure
neighbourhood, yet close to shops, beaches, the winelands and a number of
great golf courses. We enjoyed every minute of our stay."

Jan Verburg, South Africa - 11 May 2008
Our stay was outstanding! We enjoyed every minute while we where there. Gary
and Miriam the hosts were very friendly and help full in various situations
 
     
"Our team of 7 ladies spent 2 weeks at Mooring House. The rooms were so
spacious and daily cleaned excellently. We had plenty of hot water for all of us to
shower at once. The view and grounds are beautiful and located very
conveniently to sites, mall, etc.   Garry and Miriam prepared wonderful breakfasts
for us and coordinated with our schedule just as we needed. The hosts also gave
us excellent recommendations for shopping, laundry, eating out and they
personally aided us when two of our group became ill. Their service to us went
beyond the "call of duty". They provided help and answers for our every need. I
hesitate making this review only because I hope Mooring House won't become so
popular that I won't be able to get a reservation in the future. I would not stay
anywhere else when visiting the Cape Town area. We all hope to return." Bonnie

WE WOULD LOVE TO INSERT THE
FLAG OF YOUR COUNTRY

Somerset West ligt ca 40 km over de autoweg van Kaapstad, ca 30 minuten
rijden.  Zelf auto rijden is heel goed te doen in Zuid Afrika, de wegen zijn goed (met
links verkeer ) en het is er niet zo druk als in Nederland (in Kaapstad kan het wel
behoorlijk druk zijn).
Somerset West is een zeer goede uitvalsbasis voor tochtjes door het
aangrenzende wijnland, de z.g. wijn route, en bezoeken aan Stellenbosch (een
must), Paarl en Franshoek. Het guesthouse ligt op ca 4 km van het strand en er
zijn golfbanen in de omgeving indien u of uw reispartners daar belangstelling voor
hebben. Ook bezoeken aan Kaapstad, Kaap de Goede hoop en  en plaatsen
verderop langs de kust zijn goed bereikbaar. Mocht u na uw eerste 4 dagen de
bedoeling hebben de "tuinroute" verderop langs de kust te gaan volgen dan is
Somerset West, aan de autosnelweg A1 (??) een prima startpunt.

Gerry heeft zeer veel informatie over de mogelijkheden en interessante dingen  in
de omgeving en over restaurants, wijnboerderijen, winkels etc.. Hij is zeer
behulpzaam in het regelen van zaken zoals afhalen van/brengen naar het
vliegveld, regelen van een huurauto, bespreken van een afslagtijd op een golfbaan
enz.

Ik hoop u met bovenstaande informatie voldoende indruk te hebben gegeven. Ik
kan het adres echt aanbevelen voor de start van uw bezoek aan Zuid Afrika.
Ik ben er van overtuigd dat u een fijne vacantie zult hebben in dat mooie land.

Met vriendelijke groet,

Goedeavond,

Jullie mailadres heb ik als referentie opgekregen van Garry Yates.
Ik zou graag weten hoe jullie het verblijf in zijn lodge ervaren hebben en of je niet te ver
zit van Capetown zelf ivm het op en neer rijden. Wij willen daar boeken de 1e 4 nachten
van ons verblijf.
Het is onze 1e kennismaking met Zuid Afrika en we weten totaal niet wat we kunnen
verwachten. Je hoort af en toe vervelende verhalen over veiligheid en zo.
We vertrekken 23 februari, komen 28 maart terug en willen de Tuinroute gaan rijden.

Als jullie verder nog tips hebben, heel GRAAG
Met vriendelijke groet,
Mieke Lauvenberg

Geachte mevrouw Lauvenberg,

wij hebben in de afgelopen 4 jaar twee maal gedurende een week gebruikt gemaakt van
Gerry Yates' guesthouse in Somerset West.
De familie is buitengewoon vriendelijk, behulpzaam, prettig en gastvrij. De kamers
(eigenlijk appartementjes) zijn comfortabel en goed ingericht met een leuke tuin en een
prettig en schoon, zwembad. Het guesthouse ligt in een nette buurt van Somerset West,
goed bereikbaar vanaf de autowegen, met een kleine supermarkt voor de dagelijkse
levensbehoeften op loopafstand, en toch ook niet ver van het centrum van Somerset
West. Het complex is afgesloten  van de weg, beveiligd door een bewakingsdienst en het
gezin heeft volgens mij tenminste één hond. Overigens hebben wij gelukkig geen
onprettige ervaringen gehad met de veiligheid.
