My wife and I went here for our anniversary last year. The service was great and the room impeccable. The whole place had a magical charm. Definitely recommended should you stay in Cape Town and want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.

Because their double room was under renovation, they offered us the deluxe suite for the same price.

Room Tip: Deluxe suite is worth the price.

The western cape wine lands area must rate as one of the world,s most celebrated tourist areas,and this gem,ideally located in a pristine mountain setting ,is a haven of tranquility in this noisy rushed world
It is also the ideal base from which to launch your daily adventures: Spectacular coastal drive ,that rivals the best of Amalfi coast..from Gordon's bay,via Betty,s bay to Hermanus,a visit to the fine dining offered in Franschhoek,the unforgettable world class wines and restaurants of Stellenbosch etc etc. Spacious clean,and comfortable rooms,friendly staff,makes Willowbrooke one of the very best bang for your buck ,choice....This is a no brainier!

Room Tip: I did not bother to find the "ideal room" as this place is simply awesome...so any room is...

We had the pleasure of spending a week at Willowbrook. A very quiet spot with lots of privacy. All staff have been extremely helpful. We were very well looked after; all our needs expectations were more than fulfilled.
It’s a pleasant way of starting holidays, in vicinity of fabulous Golf courses and some of the best restaurants are just “around the corner”, meaning very nearby who have been recommended to us by the staff. The only proposal for improvement from my side: With a garden a little more colorful and well maintained, it would be a paradise.

I stayed here for five nights prior to travelling around South Africa. Had a fabulous time. Very peaceful and charming surroundings yet with a great welcoming atmosphere! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, they were all very helpful. Tours and arrangements were made directly with the hotel making my stay most relaxing. Definitely stay here next time I visit Cape Town!

Room Tip: Booked a single room but was the size of a large double!!

Willowbrook is a small gem that I was able to experience thanks to a friend who had stayed there in the past. Rooms are large, and all look out to your privet patio. Lovely pool area and wonderful restaurant to boot. We had a I great wine tour with John, arranged by hotel. Everything was taken care of with ease. Transfers, tours, eating. Anything you needed was attended to. 6stars
