We came for a conference in Stellenbosch and although we only wanted B&B we didn't even get that. There was only TV1,2,3 and ETV and only after we asked for it to bechecked. I had bugs in my bed on the last night I slept there. Will not recommend this place to anyone.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I'm sorry that your stay did not meet your expectations. Your booking was through an agent and we did explain at the time of booking that all our units are let on a self-catering or room only basis. The agent did confirm that she had discussed this with you... More

The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. The main bed is just extremely uncomfortable , and the fridge is way too small for a self-catering unit. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the stay - we as parents just felt the main bed needs serious replacement, and the fridge for self catering is extremely unforgiving. Overall, okay for the need we had...

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.

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!

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
