The Golden Hill Guest House, a guest house dedicated to your comfort, lies in Somerset West, just 25 minutes from Cape Town International Airport.

Close to the Helderberg Nature Reserve, the historical Vergelegen Wine Estate and the famous Erinvale Golf Club, the Golden Hill offers six en-suite bedrooms, five opening on to a verandah overlooking the spacious garden.

For business commitments we have fax and e-mail facilities available.

Your host Willi is a Satour registered tour guide and offers guided tours or supports you in planning your own tours for example to Cape Town, the Cape Peninsula and the Winelands.

Enjoy the sumptuous breakfast in the dining room or outside on the verandah. Relax in the lounge in front of a crackling fire in winter. Make use of the honesty bar or even ask for hot drinks, plan the next day, read or just watch TV.

For the comfort of our guests the building is a non smoking area. Smokers are welcome to enjoy their cigarette on the verandah. Children above 12 years of age are welcome.

Relax in the spacious garden, where Shona-sculptures will give you an insight into African culture.

Shona sculpture is perhaps the most important new art form to emerge in this century. Shona sculpture is only 40 years old, yet has established a strong international reputation.

On a hot summer day you can cool off in the swimming pool.


Golden Hill is an ideal base for tours to Cape Town with its vibrant Waterfront, Table Mountain and the Cape of Good Hope.

You can even visit the nearby historic towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.
