It is a historical building but the rooms and the dinning area are not the same as displayed on the internet. The rooms are rather old and the hallway floors creek all the time so you constantly hear people walking down the passages.

Friendly and convenient lodge type accommodation in Somerset West, had a brief stay and enjoyed the experience, cozy friendly Pub and home style cooking. Well situated to do any business in the Helderberg area. A lovely old building with character, this is not the usual boring hotel.
