Really nice stay - rooms clean with a personal touch. Checking in and out was painless and efficient. Everything was in good working order - even had free WiFi for those important after-hours emails one has to deal with. I will definitely use the facility again when visiting clients in the area.

I absolutely loved this place. I rooms were nice, neat and comfortable. The owners made us feel right at home. My only complaint is that I didn't have enough days to stay there and embrace Cape Town for its beauty and culture.

After searching for an overnight on a rainy afternoon and not finding anything inexpensive around the beach areas, a self catering sign caught the eye, inland at Somerset West, along a main road. Finding accommodation was available and entering reception, it was a surprise to see Kevin behind the bar, wearing his Man U top(should send a Spurs one), with... More

Penny Lane Lodge proved to be a great find for me. The chalet was very clean and comfortable and had all that I needed. Diane and Kevin are great hosts. I travel through Cape Town airport quite a lot and I will certainly be using Penny Lane Lodge again.

My friend and I stayed for 2 nights while visiting friends in Somerset West. Our room was very comfortable and clean and we enjoyed sitting on our balcony with the mountain view. Diane and Kevin made us very welcome and we loved the garden by the pool. We were hugely impressed by Diane's paintings - she even has her own... More

Thank you for the warm welcome. Really cool. 😊😊 Lol :-) - please keep the dogs away to allow use of the indoor pool. Perhaps regular check ups on the guests if they need anything. Overall, really enjoyed our stay and room. Thank you so much.

Stayed the first 10 days of this year. A perfect base for our family holiday! We stayed in the two bed cottage, it was great to have this much room as a family on holiday, rather than having to squash in one hotel room. Kevin and Diane were really friendly, although we were so busy we didn't see much of... More

My wife and I need temporary accommodation whilst we are preparing to move from Somerset West, Cape Town, to Pretoria. I visited Penny Lane lodge on 19 Jan '14 to view the "chalet". I was, somewhat, disappointed as the "chalet", viewed, appeared to be an old, wooden-based, "Wendy House" converted to accommodation?? It was small and appeared cramped and "musty".... More

We always welcome feedback - including from people who don't actually stay with us. A fresh eye is a useful marker. In response to this review, we would advise that our chalets are timber-framed and clad, insulated with plasterboard and were newly constructed just a few years ago. They are located in a secluded garden setting which many people enjoy.... More

The place is great & offers a nice & quiet environment for resting. One thing that the hosts can improve on is separating their reception area from pets & smoking areas - visitors generally don't like both.
