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... More

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.... More

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... More

The most enjoyable holiday possible. I stayed there with my beautiful lady for two weeks who had been there on two occasions before. The greeting by Lisa and Sheila was so warm and friendly. The rooms were beautiful and clean. The meals were scrumptious. The service from the staff was not only of the highest professional standard but made you... More

With no room at the inn at our usual hotel for our annual croquet pilgrimage, we ended up at Willowbrook - and what a blessing it was all round. Really lovely, welcoming and helpful staff, comfortable and elegantly-decorated room, excellent food - and walking distance to the croquet club. Even the building works going on next door could not detract... More

We´ve visited Willowbrook for almost one week and had an amazing stay there. We can highly recommend this lodge. It is well situated as Stellenbosch or Cape Town are not too far away. The rooms are lovely and dining is excellent. We had an awesome time there and will definately come back. Lisa and her team are very very friendly... More

Wow, once again we have graced the garden forest that is Willowbrook Country House. Where does Willowbrook get its staff from? We arrived on a Friday night, for a full weekend stay and we were met at the door by Conrad. Now, Conrad is not your average concierge by any means. He has the genuine likeability and supreme efficiency of... More

I visited this lodge in January with my Italian husband and we found it to be a most serene and lovely setting. The food was excellent and staff really really nice,Charlene, Conrad, Sheila, Meggie. I would certainly recommend it and I personally would like to go back one day.
