This morning a friend and I went looking for a place to have tea in Wellington. We saw the sign for Soete Huijs on the main road, and drove up to the entrance. I pushed the button on the intercom, and politely asked if we could have tea there. I was completely taken aback by the snooty answer : "... More

We loved our stay in this guest house. It has all the necessary comforts that were needed. It was quiet and felt like you were in the country, yet very close to to the center of town. We loved the resident dogs too! We will most certainly be back.

Soete Huys is by far the nicest Guesthouse we have visited in a while, the location and view is stunning and the rooms spacious and clean, but most of all the hosts went out of their way to accommodate us and assisted us with sending parcels forgotten back You won't make a mistake!

My fiancé and I stayed only for one night, we now wish we had booked for longer. We were pleasantly surprised with the friendliness, the comfort and the beautiful surroundings. Superb for families or a romantic get away. Thank you Reg and Nancy for an unforgettable stay.

I had a lovely stay at Soete Huys on my own and returned with y husband and daughter. Soete Huys is set on a hill looking over the town with beautiful views of the mountains.
