I wished my two night stay was in actual fact a two week stay. From the friendly and helpful staff to the lovely room we occupied made this a most pleasurable stay that I would definitely recommend. The food, both room service and in the in-house dining area was of high standard and quality.

The service was excellent and the hotel staff were very responsive to our requests. I would definitely recommend it to many of my friends, colleagues and family members. I hear we got an incredible deal also as the service we experienced was way better than the price we paid - this is a rare thing in Cape Town

Friendly, attentive staff Friendly attentive staff but view from room was disappointing.Room furniture and bathroom need an update. Also, missed the tea/ coffee self-service in the room. No bar fridge either. Seems that Groupon deals possibly get the worst rooms.

My wife and I bought a Groupon voucher to stay the night after doing some wine-tasting in the Somerset West area. The receptionist kindly booked us into a quiet room a distance away from the hotel entrance. The room was great with a king-size bed. The bathrooms are a bit dated. The buffet dinner was good and featured mainly typical... More

The hotel also has excellent restaurants as well as pools, a hair dresser and a spa. If you would like to host a conference in thevarea this is a n... More

The stay was amazing. A wide range of food stuff to select from each day. my meals never felt like it was a routine. The most friendliest staff i have ever met; customer service at its very best. A 5 min walk to the nearby shopping complex and it looks crime free. 20 mins drive to the beach. The Lord... More

Quite average hotel. The best part of the hotel is the location and breakfast. You are so close to Somerset Hotel and all the wine farms. Then the breakfasts are divine!! Champagne for breakfast!!! You can eat till you are blue in the face. The hotel rooms are just for sleeping but there is so much to do - it... More

My fourth stay at the Lord Charles. So genuinely friendly and welcoming. Lovely hotel. It may not be five star but having visited several of the five star hotels for a drink or afternoon tea during our two week stay, each time we drove back through the gates my wife and i said "good to be home, glad we aren't...
