“Best Value for your Money”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

This is probably the best Guesthouse we had on our trip. There is everything you need, a large room with a kitchen, very comfortable beds and and the room is furnished with a lot of lovely details :) We even had BBQ Facilities and access to the pool. All that and more for the best price you can get! Enjoy your stay in Somerset Lodge :)

I have been travelling throughout SA staying in a variety of accommodation. I can recommend Somerset Lodge unreservedly. The accommodation was self catering and was exactly as described but also provided thoughtful extras ( hair dryer, real milk for our tea, dishwashing liquid, placemats and a full selection of dishes). Five star amenities at three star prices. Thank you David.

Will recommend the B&B anytime. Rooms are beautiful and clean. Got spoiled with a big breakfast in the morning. Room was self catering and David makes you feel home. Will always stay there when I'm back in the aria.

We only stayed at the Somerset Lodge for one night but we had the perfect time overthere. David made us feel very welcome and gave us a lot of useful information about things to do in Montagu. We stayed in the Hilton room which is very luxurious. We enjoyed the huge come-cooked breakfast.
Thx David for the awesome time in Montagu!

Would recommend this B&B! Had a lovely stay, perfect accomodation at excellent location for a very reasonable price! Rooms are very clean and everything is provided for (self-catering)! Took a night dip in the small but extremely cosy pool. Seldom met a more friendly host. Thanks David, we'll see you again. Bruno & Céline from Belgium

-Looking forward to seing you with us, we know you'll enjoy it!
Those were the welcoming words from David before we arrived. We enjoyed; much more, we were indulged from a to z. Fabulous!
Rooms way abowe *** rating, and if considering price and quality, we've never had anything better! 5 mins from the mainstreet, in quiet surrondings, brilliant hosts, lovely breakfast (but tell David first what you want, otherwise you'll end up having only too much :-)! The beds? Best we've had, my rusty back just loved them. Too hot? No, state-of-the-art, silent A/C
Go there and see for yourself!
