Given the fact that it's supposed to be a 4 star establishment, the rooms are disappointing: outdated furniture, no electric outlet next to the bed, a poor quality shower head, uncomfortable couches etc. I see the standard response to...

Myself and my wife always enjoy the Lord Charles for the room and for the good breakfast - and they are always friendly and helpful. There are also very nice tennis courts to play on. We use it when we get there and enjoy the lovely garden around us..

We had a 75th birthday party for my mother at the Lord Charles Hotel. Everything was fantastic. The arrangements before was done in a very friendly and professional manner. The welcome on the day was sincere, the service good and friendly and the food abundant and tasty. It was a most enjoyable experience and we shall be back.

The staff at the desk were friendly and helped us to upgrade our room to a suite for a small amount. We liked it very much. Spacious living area with... More

Great reception, friendly helpful staff. Rooms are a bit dated, but well appointed. Air conditioner didn't work and it was hot, but that was due to load shedding in Somerset West and Stellenbosch earlier. Excellent breakfast. I'll go back, thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Alwena
