Many of Paulet Street's original houses survive and are to-day National Monuments, conveying a good idea of what the village would have looked like almost two centuries ago. Somerset House to-day is a guest house, both spacious and elegant. Those who enjoy gracious living, silver service breakfasts and the like will appreciate staying here.
Situated in the quietest part of a quiet town and backing on to the Bosberg, the ambience of Somerset House is tranquil, scenic and restful.
There are three spacious and airy en-suite bedrooms. All have under-floor heating, air-conditioning, Percale linen and all the extras one would expect to find.
The living and dining room is large, comfortable and in excellent taste.
Outside is a large, furnished stoep which looks out over the garden to the slopes of the Bosberg.
Somerset House provides a full breakfast.
The town itself has several places to eat.
For a gourmet experience simply walk a few doors along Paulet Street to Rosehope where you will be welcomed by one of South Africa's premier chefs, Janet Telian, well-known as a regular contributor of articles to the Lifestyle supplement of the Sunday Times.
