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. Furthermore, the guesthouse manager is very rude and the first thing she says to customers entering the... More

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.

I stayed at Somerset Lodge for 3 weeks while on business, what a great location and lovely buiding. I found the lodge to be central to all my clients in the Western Cape. The hotel has large rooms, offers a great breakfast that keeps you going for the whole day until you get back in the evening and can unwind... More
