Very Good 8.0
A good welcome. The room was noisy, and without aircon and with a noisy fan - which meant window had to be kept open. Otherwise comfortable and thoughtfully supplied

Lovely & comfortable room - gracious host - A+
I'm sorry it took so long to write this review. This is a fabulous guest house in Kalk Bay. Your Host Pat is quite lovely and accommodating. The rooms are very nice and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you might need to snack or drink. Delicious home-cooked breakfast as well. Highly recommend Sonnekus House for a comfortable and friendly stay in Kalk Bay.

Great Location. Great service. Tip Top.
A truly wonderful experience staying at Sonnekus. Old world charm in abundance with five star service from Pat, Mike and Nick. Cannot think of a single fault with our stay. This truly surpassed every expectation. The thoughtful and tasteful decoration recalling a more genteel age, without being an empty pastiche. We will definitely be visiting again.
