We decided to spend a couple of nights in Montagu to take advantage of the small town atmosphere and the hiking available nearby. Our stay at Somerset Lodge was lovely. The hosts were very welcoming and the accommodations fantastic. We booked the self-catering suite, which was in a separate small guesthouse and was well appointed with full-sized fridge, hotplate, kettle, and all the dishes necessary to get by. It is a little out of the main part of town, but no more than a two or three minute drive to most of the destinations in town. It was very quiet and peaceful at night and we were able to sit out on a private patio and share a few glasses of wine in the evening. The suite also had a private and locked parking area for our car.

My husband and I have been to Somerset Lodge twice, our first experience being so lovely we simply had to go back (with out daughter)! Dave and Michael are both friendly, helpful and would go to the ends of the earth to make us the guests comfortable and happy. Their attention to detail, the decor, the garden, the rooms, the breakfasts nothing less than superb. You actually dont want to leave. I would definitely recommend this B&B to everyone. We had such a lovely relaxing time on both occasions, thank you so much!

After 8 nights of sleeping at different lodges, it was a delight coming to Somerset Lodge. The place is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The owner is very hospitable and made us feel like we were at a home away from home, offering us the best possible rooms he could. The room had everything we needed an a really comfortable bed and a great shower. I was most pleased to wake up in the morning and find that the kettle already had water to make coffee, and in the fridge there was a little jug of milk. I have never found this anywhere else. There are two cute little puppies who run around and entertain you. The lodge has a pool outside the room we stayed in and it was amazing to sit outside at night by the poolside and watch the stars. If you are in Montagu, stay here!!!

From the moment I signed the visitors' book, I knew my stay would be happy, comfortable,and cheery. David's hospitality was warm and he spared no effort in assisting me even with the challenge of my Smartphone. My suite was beautifully appointed and comfortable and my every need was taken care of ( and with a cheery smile). I can recommend this property I will visit again and again. Aideen O'Mara

The (self catering) cottage in the Somerset Lodge is comfortable and David is a very enjoyable host. Elaborate cooking is not advisable (the electric cooking unit is somewhat primitive), but making eg a salad is quite ok. Somerset Lodge is in a quiet area of Montagu, walking distance from the centre
