My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights in January as part of a golf package. It was a wonderful introduction to SA. Accommodation was comfortable, spacious and quiet in the suite overlooking a restful garden. Breakfasts were delicious and the home baked bread was a treat. The quality of the food was good and everyone was very helpful....

I stayed at Willowbrook for three nights, while taking part in a mountain bike stage race. We always left early in the morning and returned late in the day. Long before the start of the official breakfast time, we were offered hot oats and coffee, delivered to the room, each morning. A nice personal touch, which we appreciated. The rooms...

Better late then never... We stayed at the country house at the beginning of south african spring. So it has been no weather, to use the pool and a little rainy. But it was a very friendly welcome, the room really specious and breakfast perfect. Especially the public area, where breakfast and dinner is served, gave us a cosy country-house...

A very nice guest house in the leafy suburbs of Somerset West. My wife and I arrived late and left after breakfast so we didn't have a chance to sample all that Willowbrook have on offer; however, what we did sample was pleasant. We stayed in the executive suite which had a separate lounge area. The bedroom was also big....

My husband and I stayed in the executive suite for one night last weekend. The suite itself is very spacious, comfortable and clean and the grounds of the guesthouse are really beautiful. The only reason I haven't given 5-stars is that the breakfast service on the Saturday morning was incredibly slow. We had appointments in the area and we did...
