About Us

SomerZicht is located in a very quiet and established suburb of Somerset West with magnificent views of the very impressive Hottentots Holland and Helderberg Mountains.


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 endeavor 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.

Wir, Jörg Grotegut und Petra Halstenberg, haben den kühlen Norden Deutschlands verlassen und leben nun in einer der schönsten Gegenden Südafrikas, in Sommerset West nahe Kapstadt. Wir haben uns vor Jahren in das atemberaubend schöne Land, in die freundlichen Menschen und in die Kultur des Landes verliebt. Dieses möchten wir nun an unsere Gäste weitergeben und für einen unvergesslich schönen Aufenthalt im Gästehaus SomerZicht sorgen.

Gerne informieren wir Sie über Tagesausflüge zu einigen der schönsten Sehenswürdigkeiten Südafrikas. Genießen Sie eine Golfrunde, wir buchen dieses für Sie. Wir helfen selbstverständlich auch bei der Reservierung von Restaurants und Tagesausflügen.
