The garden is lovely and we enjoyed the chatter of...

We loved our stay at Somerset Lodge. The host pays such close attention to detail, down to the sprigs of Lavender on our towels. We thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable bed, decked out with an array of fluffy pillows and electric blankets, making for the perfect relaxing weekend away for my boyfriend and I. We felt utterly relaxed and at home,...

Our accommodation was very comfortable in a cozy apartment. We enjoyed the quietness of Montagu with the birds singing in the garden. We even had the musical sound of a small waterfall in our private garden. Thanks

Excellent accommodation with extremely friendly hosts. We booked 3 rooms of which one was a self catering room. The lodge is conveniently located and close to shops and the Springs. The rooms were wonderful ... very clean and neat with the most comfy beds. I stayed in a room with a four poster bed and a huge en-suite. Extremely safe...

Was everything I expect like on their Website. Quiet, unique and fresh. The host was also great with information. The room was cosy and very well equipped and we had an excellent nights sleep. Attention to detail also a plus!!!

“It depends on what you plan to go there for.We choose BISHOPS ROOM which is close to the pool and is slightly bigger than Clifton(also close to the pool but has a better view of the beautiful paintings). The other two rooms are self catering and are therefore bigger but further from pool. If you not fussy,then any room is fine”
