Willowbrook Country House was our first stop (8 nights) on our very first trip to South Africa. We felt absolutely safe there and enjoyed the location with the wonderful silent garden. It was the ideal starting point for golf and sightseeing. Our room was spacious and nice furnished. The services was perfect. Breakfast and dinner were excellent. Thank you very... More

Had a great time there. The very quite but centrally located building is an old farmhouse dating from 19th century. The rooms are spacious, stylish, modern with air-con, modern bath with bath-tube - which is great after a long hike. Nice garden, clean pool. The restaurant is cosy and serves excellent food & wine. The Helderberg Mountains are just around... More

Please let me take this first opportunity to comment on Willowbrook House after a very long return journey to New England. I had a good rest at Willowbrook following two weeks of travel between Joburg, Kruger Park and the super madhouse environment of old Long St Cape Town. My original reservations were made with booking.com and further communications via e-mail... More

We stayed at Willowbrook for 4 nights and we really enjoyed every single moment in this small paradise. Very helpful and friendly staff, great dinner options, nice breakfast (if there's something they could upgrade, that's the coffee/coffee machine). For sure that's the place everyone would love! See you soon! And thank you!

This was our sixth visit in twelve years to Willow Brook, and as ever, we wish we could have stayed longer than our 4 days. The staff are always friendly and helpful, and the kitchen opened for lunch just for the two of us on our arrival. We were early on that day, but the rooms were already available. We... More

Willowbrook Country House is a very nice place, in a nice & quiet location with top service from Lisa and her colleagues. One feel at home very quickly and we stayed 2 weeks and enjoyed every day. We played golf on some of SA-s best courses, all of them booked by Willowbrook. Needless to say that the food and the... More

I arrived after a busy day seeing clients, and all I wanted was to relax, watch TV and have a nice dinner. On my arrival I waited for 15 minutes in the reception to be assisted, the poor lady on duty (the only staff member) was running around checking in and serving dinner. First I could not order room service... More

Simple effective accommodation / value for money in a beautiful quiet rural setting. Excellent restaurant / food with a twist. Worth a visit for the exquisite menu with freshly cooked local ingredients
