Staying at Soverby was a wonderful experience. Although the guesthouse is located on a busy road, it was rather tranquil on the premises. The guesthouse has two properties opposite to each other. One contains cottages while the other has variations of double rooms. We stayed on the premises with the double rooms, which was in fact formerly a stable. My... More

Thank you for a fabulous stay in one of the very well equipped self catering cottages overlooking the dam with stunning views all round, peace and tranquillity. Staff wonderfully friendly and helpful and great breakfasts. Loved the dogs, especially Diesel the Jack Rusell

Thank you to the great staff. The breakfast was execellent. The rooms are lovely with a nice bathroom. The location is 13 km from Stellenbosch, perfect for exploring the winelands of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.

Spent one night at Soverby in March 2013. Nice rooms although a little close to a busy road. We were a little disappointed in the setting as the website shows lovely dams which we thought were on the property but it turned out that the dams were on the other side of the road where the self catering cottages were...

These rooms Have a lot of history; and there a lovely touches such as a 'window' through to the original wall. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom has lovely hot showers. Wifi is available in... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in the family room (the original farm shop - great arrangement with kids upstairs). The staff were really accommodating and helpful, and the breakfasts delicious. A great pool area, and outdoor areas for the kids to enjoy. It's in a lovely location although it is a 10min drive from Stellenbosch for dinner.

We took the self catering cottage which was perfect to get ready at and watch the end of the Stormers match on the big screen TV. Breakfast was amazing the next day, buffet was packed with every possible breakfast want, and the a la... More

This is a very family friendly, flexible and enjoyable place to stay. We've rented one of the self-catering cottages for the last four years for a couple of weeks at a time (from UK). The location between Stellenbosch and Somerset West is ideal with easy access to N2 and Cape Town as well as being stunning. Sometimes we have breakfast... More
