Somerset Lodge

Attention to detail is what Somerset Lodge is all about. This was my 3rd and hopefully not last stay here. It's located south of the town but the short walk into the centre is more than compensated for by the terrific value, lovely property and garden and peaceful neighbourhood. I joked with the owners, David and Michael, that if I wrote a very flattering report they would be full next time I want to visit. I guess that's a risk I'll have to take!

Perfect place!! very quite location a few walking minutes from town centre and restaurants. Very relaxing wonderful décor and in retrospect, wished we would have stayed longer. We arrived without booking and the manager made every effort to accommodate us!!! just wished all B&Bs in SA were like this!!!

We stayed 3 nights at this wonderful little B&B in July 2012. We were only going to stay for 2 but extended our stay because we loved it so much. We had one of the self catering units that had a lovely little patio with a grill. The place was beautifully appointed with a well equipped kitchen, satellite tv and heat/AC. Many of the homes in South Africa do not have heat and since we traveled in the winter, we froze in so many places! But not here!

The location of Somerset was great! Very close to town and near the wineries of Montagu, Ashton and Robertson. The owner, David, was a blast! We enjoyed hanging out with him one evening and hearing his funny stories. He offered great suggestions on things to do and places to go as well. And we loved his little pooches!

Room Tip: Pick the self catering unit with the queen bed. You can braai at this unit! If you like to hike, t...
