A lovely guesthouse with superb staff, a lovely setting and the cottages on the other side of the road, although annoying to drag your bags too have a spectaular view of the lake. We booked about 8 rooms there for a friends wedding nearby and it lived up to expectations. Would definitely recommend.

We had very bad service at check out by Karen and she let us pay two times. She also dont like other black people. My girlfriend is black and she treated her very badly. She let us feel so bad we just wanted to get away from there.

I don't think we got value for money with regards to our stay at Soverby. The pool was dirty, there were no umbrellas at the pool for shade. The cushion on the lounger by the pool was dirty & sticky. When I went to reception to see if I could order a light lunch for my room, there was no...

They have an amazing service, very helpful even during the night! The breakfast wasn't the best but still tasty. The place was very nice, it is easy to find as it is situated next to a road with a free parking. The rooms were clean.

Nice rooms, good shower, excellent breakfast. Location very rural considering it is in Stellenbosch. The adjacent road is very busy and quite noisy when outside - but the rooms are pretty soundproof and the noise did not disturb our sleep.

Loved the staff friendliness and willingness to do anything to make our stay more comfortable especially Whiskers the security guard and his doggies! Would love to see an extra toilet installed in the family upstairs suite perhaps near the front door before the stairwell. It was a struggle with 5 of us and only 1 bathroom (toilet). Needed more and...

I work around the corner from Soverby and was always curious about the guest house. Called on the night just before the reception area closed. The lady assured me that she made the booking for me and that she will be gone but the security officer will be there to Welcome and Check me in(what a friendly guy-Emmanuel I think)....

“There's a choice of rooms at the guest house on one side of the room or 3 self-catering cottages over the road based around the dam (small lake for irrigation on the farm). All are great and just ask the team there and they'll advise you what suits you best.”
