Werner and Briggite were excellent hosts and made us most welcome. The room was spotlessly clean and the gardens were beautiful to look out on to. We really couldn't have asked for more, Werner even offered to take us to the 60th party and pick us up if we all wanted to have a drink (other two friends were there too) but I don't drink so they had a driver. Whenever we go back to Somerset West again we will most certainly stay at Blue Crane again, we felt really at home.
