We stayed for 9 nights in a Superior Room which was excellent. Lots of room, wonderful comfy beds in a relaxed peaceful setting.

Staff were friendly and more than willing to...

We visited Somerset west for a wedding and booked accommodation at this charming guest lodge. Accommodation was comfortable and clean, white linen and air conditioning 👍🏼 We visited as a couple but appears to be great for families too. Lovely patio outside every room which are all situated around a garden. Breakfast lovely. Close to wine farms and awesome restaurants....

This is our second visit to Willowbrook. Nice surprise when we arrived as we were upgraded to the Executive Suite, lovely. Lisa is very helpful and we had a pleasant 3 night stay there. Would certainly use again if in the area. Dinner was delicious. There is a lovely riverside walk behind the hotel.

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...
