The Blue Crane Bed and Breakfast / Guest House is owner-managed by the South African couple, Brigitte and Werner Pagels. Although Werner does speak German fluently, their home language is English. Werner was born and grew up in Windhoek, Namibia (then South West Africa), and Brigitte has lived all her life in Somerset West.

Werner moved to Somerset West after completing his schooling in Windhoek / Namibia, where he met and married Brigitte, a born Somerset West resident. For most of their married life, Brigitte was employed as a private secretary whilst Werner was in the Aluminium window Industry. Today they jointly manage the Guest House and their in-house tours.

Although Werner does speak German fluently, their home language is English. The couple has three healthy and active boys, Jacques, Philip and Marc.

Jacques has graduated as a web developer and is working in the IT industry in the UK. He is an award-winning web developer and also the webmaster of this, the Blue Crane site.

Philip too lives in London/UK and is a chef-in-training at the royal household in London!

Marc is attending Somerset College and is in his final school year. After school he plans to further his hockey career in Perth/Australia. He is a graded umpire and has been playing hockey in Cape Town’s men’s leagues for the past years.

Then there is the two friendly Labradors, Tina and Bruno and a talkative African Grey Parrot, Coco, who keeps both the owners as well as guests well entertained.
