Loved visiting The Lord Charles Hotel. My mom that is 85 yrs old came to visit us at the hotel on the Saturday and one of the male staff members got her a wheel chair, showed her around the pool area, little waterfalls and all to see. So sorry I cant remember his name, he called her ouma :) What... More

Booked this hotel on a package deal, with flights and car rental. Was looking for a nice hotel near to the wine route of stellenbosch. Firstly the good: The hotel is very well situated, near restaurants and a shopping mall, and a short drive from the wine estates of stellenbosch. The breakfast was a top shelf buffet, and well worth... More

We stayed at the hotel on the weekend of 22 -24 August.The room that we stayed in was not up to standard.It looks as if the carpet had cigarette burn marks on.The bath had mold around the edges.After I took a shower the whole bathroom was under water.I don't think I'll stay at Lord Charles again.

Very good easily accessible facility in Somerset West. Very secure location - not the big city feel at this location Great rooms and great service. Breakfast was very good. Booking.com was used and their communication with the hotel did not take place.

Our stay at The Lord Charles was an enjoyable experience. The buffet breakfast offers value for money, however the standard has dropped from what it used to be. As an executive club member we would've preferred a ground floor room and a bidet in the bathroom of a Four Star hotel in my opinion should be standard.

Food service and conferencing facilities are great, however it is not a four star sleep over. To get to four star the television system (as a minimum) needs to be upgraded. The screen we had in our room is first generation and we are at 5th generation screens. We also need more channels. We could not even watch the finals... More

Stayed here for one night in August. The entire hotel is in a desperate need of a renovation. All NH hotels around the world seems to be outdated. Old box tv (haven't seen that in ages), furniture is scratched and carpet got marks on. Terrible shower spraying all over the place. No plugs next to the bed, moved the bedsides... More

I was booked for Training and venue was the NH LC. I stayed here and used their conference facilities. The rooms were very roomy and ticks most of the boxes, however old box type TV & the old fridge was a let down. The breakfast was average and almost had to beg for a cup of coffee. On the first...

My wife and I needed a break from the hussle and bussle of our work. We needed to just relax and spend time with each other without interference of our grown up kids and dogs. We sure found it here. We virtually lived in our spacious room, eating great breakfasts, taking walks, room service and just relaxing by the pool.... More
