We have stayed about six times at Willowbrook and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Somerset West. The peace, quiet and comfort are exemplary and the care and attention from all the staff is above all expectations. Lisa and Maggie go the extra mile and then some to make sure you're cared for. Excellent value for money and I can't wait...

We recently spent 6 nights at Willowbrook Lodge. Everything more than met our expectations. The room was worthy of any 5 star hotel and the peaceful surroundings were exactly what we wanted. However the real enjoyment came from the service we had from Lisa, Maggie and the rest of the staff. After only one day we felt "part of the...

Nice place, with a very pleasant landlord, Lisa, who is so helpfull with everything. Breakfest could need a improvement. Is not bad, but a upgrade would be nice. Classic South African style. Rooms are quite big and the place has a small pool

We stayed here for two nights to attend a wedding at the Lourensford Wine Estate - about 5 min away by car. Other than the wedding, we didn't do anything else in Somerset so we can't comment on the location in terms of tourist attraction. The country house is on a beautiful estate. We booked the Petite room but they...

We spent a week in this charming place and were lucky to get the Private Residence, which is basically the size of an apartment with a large portion of the garden as your patio. The bed is comfortable, with a firm mattress, and a choice of 5 pillows. The entire staff is super-nice and they try very hard to make...

We stayed here as part of a great trip organised by walkingholidays in south africa. Apparently the hotel has been pushed off the number one spot in the area by dodgy tripadvisor practices: take no notice and come here. It's a great place to unwind, lounge by the pool and visit local winelands. Best recommendation is walk to Morgenster and...

Willowbrook Country House was our first stop (8 nights) on our very first trip to South Africa. We felt absolutely safe there and enjoyed the location with the wonderful silent garden. It was the ideal starting point for golf and sightseeing. Our room was spacious and nice furnished. The services was perfect. Breakfast and dinner were excellent. Thank you very...

Had a great time there. The very quite but centrally located building is an old farmhouse dating from 19th century. The rooms are spacious, stylish, modern with air-con, modern bath with bath-tube - which is great after a long hike. Nice garden, clean pool. The restaurant is cosy and serves excellent food & wine. The Helderberg Mountains are just around...

Please let me take this first opportunity to comment on Willowbrook House after a very long return journey to New England. I had a good rest at Willowbrook following two weeks of travel between Joburg, Kruger Park and the super madhouse environment of old Long St Cape Town. My original reservations were made with booking.com and further communications via e-mail...
