The rooms were beautifully appointed and very spacious, all with en suite bathrooms. Spotlesslessly clean. Despite the drought, the gardens are well maintained and tranquil....

This hotel, from first look, seemed in need of an update, but as we settled in we began to appreciate the comfy, cosy feel of the place. The staff were helpful and caring, if a little disorganised at times. The main trouble was the building site next door which did mean that sometimes sitting in the lovely garden was not...

We visited Somerset west for a wedding and booked accommodation at this charming guest lodge. Accommodation was comfortable and clean, white linen and air conditioning 👍🏼 We visited as a couple but appears to be great for families too. Lovely patio outside every room which are all situated around a garden. Breakfast lovely. Close to wine farms and awesome restaurants....

This is our second visit to Willowbrook. Nice surprise when we arrived as we were upgraded to the Executive Suite, lovely. Lisa is very helpful and we had a pleasant 3 night stay there. Would certainly use again if in the area. Dinner was delicious. There is a lovely riverside walk behind the hotel.

We have stayed about six times at Willowbrook and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Somerset West. The peace, quiet and comfort are exemplary and the care and attention from all the staff is above all expectations. Lisa and Maggie go the extra mile and then some to make sure you're cared for. Excellent value for money and I can't wait...
