nice house, nice location, somewhat outside town, however with friendly and helpful staf. The rooms are clean and fit for purpose. It is very convenient for pass-trough travellers. Breakfast is very good.

We had the first night a little room with a 1,40 m bed for a couple ! We changed the next day because of that and because of the road (20 meters from our room) with it's 200 cars passing from 6.00 AM to 7.00 AM ! The ambiance with the owners was terrible : not a world from them...

A lovely guesthouse with superb staff, a lovely setting and the cottages on the other side of the road, although annoying to drag your bags too have a spectaular view of the lake. We booked about 8 rooms there for a friends wedding nearby and it lived up to expectations. Would definitely recommend.

We had very bad service at check out by Karen and she let us pay two times. She also dont like other black people. My girlfriend is black and she treated her very badly. She let us feel so bad we just wanted to get away from there.

I don't think we got value for money with regards to our stay at Soverby. The pool was dirty, there were no umbrellas at the pool for shade. The cushion on the lounger by the pool was dirty & sticky. When I went to reception to see if I could order a light lunch for my room, there was no...

They have an amazing service, very helpful even during the night! The breakfast wasn't the best but still tasty. The place was very nice, it is easy to find as it is situated next to a road with a free parking. The rooms were clean.

Nice rooms, good shower, excellent breakfast. Location very rural considering it is in Stellenbosch. The adjacent road is very busy and quite noisy when outside - but the rooms are pretty soundproof and the noise did not disturb our sleep.

Loved the staff friendliness and willingness to do anything to make our stay more comfortable especially Whiskers the security guard and his doggies! Would love to see an extra toilet installed in the family upstairs suite perhaps near the front door before the stairwell. It was a struggle with 5 of us and only 1 bathroom (toilet). Needed more and...
