"Lovely place to stay at"

Cathrin Van Wyk | 29 March 2018

"Bed was comfortable, pillows not comfortable.

Room and bathroom smelt quite strongly of chemical cleaning agents.

The 360 degree virtual tour pictures on the website are very deceiving for the size of the rooms and the pool. Everything is a lot smaller.

There are residential dogs that live in the BnB that bark and are noisy in the morning so if you're wanting to sleep in or have absolute peace on your holiday, this is not a great place to stay.

Safe and clean though, very close to shops and main road etc.

No window in the bathroom, would have been nice. "


"Great accommodation"

(South Africa) Alison Wells | 16 November 2016

"Somerset Lodge is a charming place to stay. Very clean with lovely white linen on the bed and a modern bathroom. I like the fact that you have an outside sitting area which is private to your room. "

He was most concerned about finding us a good place to eat and booked us a table at ' Simply Delicious ' where we were served the best meal of our whole holiday in South Africa. Our rooms werespotlessly clean and elegant. We enjoyed a good breakfast, stylishly served. We would certainly recommend Somerset Lodge as a very good stop-over if you are travelling Route 62."


"Stay at Somerset Lodge"

(South Africa) Heinrich Herselman | 10 November 2014

"We have just enjoyed a 10 night stay in the self-catering room Ò KEARSNEY Ò, which forms part of this charming B&B in the wonderful town of Montagu.

There is so much to rave about in this establishment , viz . The self-catering facilities are excellent and we wanted for nothing. The cupboards were well stocked with choice utensils and everything had been thought of in the room . There is an excellent fridge, microwave,2 plate stove etc and the rooms are cleaned regularly by the excellent Ò RosieÓ.

There are so many points that ÒsellÓÔ this B&B Ð in particular our room had a great air conditioning system (perfect in the summer heat), TV with 2 DSTV channels, braai facilities and in the grounds was a delightful splash pool. All these features coupled with very reasonable rates were a real winner for us!

If that is not enough, the owner Ð David Ð is an amazing person, so helpful and charming and must be the most well travelled person imaginable and he can recreate so many amazing tales from around the world.

The peace and quiet of the B&B and town in general are also worth the cost of the stay alone and the town has so many attractions from historical buildings, dried fruit sales and wine cellars, mineral springs and the wonderful mountains that surround it. Not surprisingly it was voted ÒTown of the YearÒ in 2012.

On the last day of our visit we had breakfast in the dining room (at an additional cost) Ð well, we have had breakfast in many, many different establishments but this must certainly rate as one of Ð if not THE best, that we have experienced. The amount of effort that David puts into producing such a top quality breakfast is rare in B&BÕs and not only is it delicious but also a feast for the eyes! Really worthwhile to have.

With the magnificent garden and the owners being meticulous about every aspect of their business there can be no better place to stay in Montagu and we hope that Somerset Lodge just goes from strength to strength!

"Wonderful"

(Germany) Klaus Neumann | 22 January 2012

"What a beautiful place in a wonderful garden setting, very peaceful with a very charming and friendly host. An excellent breakfast was served! We enjoyed it very much and can highly recommend it!"


"Great"

(Germany) Reinhold Henss | 24 September 2011

"We enjoyed the stay in Somerset Lodge very much. After an opulent breakfast you can enjoy your day in this little town. David is a more than nice and helpful host, no problem left unsolved. Many thanks for those amazing three days!"


"Perfect"

Christian Fahr | 21 March 2011

"Just a guest house? You can compare with a 4 Star hotel. Perfect."

"We have just spent a lovely weekend at The Somerset Lodge in Montagu. On arrival we were met by our delightful, chatty host David Andrew, Kiki and Coco the resident dogs. Meandering through the lovely garden, we reached our room, The Bishops Room, which was the room that we had requested. We found the room to be very neat, clean, and tastefully decorated, with a little covered patio overlooking the lovely splash pool. The room was fully air-conditioned, which was divine and most appreciated as the weekend was a hot one! The beds were super-comfortable, which encouraged us to "lie-in" for a bit in the morning. A luxury that we are not afforded at home with our two early-bird dogs! A lovely weekend retreat. "


"Good Stay"

(South Africa) Charmaine | 29 March 2017

"David was an amazing host, he made us feel at home and very accommodating. The pool was lovely, the bed was stunning and was made up with good linen. We would stay there again."


"Lovely B+B"

(South Africa) anonymous | 14 March 2017

"I loved everything about the accommodation. The Host was friendly, took good care of us and the bedrooms was neat. Beautiful set-up and a relaxing little vacation."

"What a super welcome we had from our host David Andrew. A lovely quiet place to stay but with everything you could wish for. The room we had was like an apartment. Very comfortable beds, lovely quality bed linen and towels, well equipped regarding cutlery and crockery, a nice big fridge. The shower room was fine too. We enjoyed being able to sit on our veranda with friends (who were also staying there) for postprandial drinks.
The pool was welcoming too.
Our host, David, was great and helpful with local advice regarding restaurants etc.
We needed a car for the short drive to the centre of Montague although younger people would have managed to short walk it.
We were sorry to leave after our sojourn at Somerset Lodge. "

"Overall we had an absolutely amazing time. We were treated as proper house guests and friends as opposed to just paying guests. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast we were treated to as well as the surroundings. The room was beautiful and clean and the makeup service was a real bonus for us. Our most highlighted point will be the hospitality. Our host David is absolutely wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed his life stories that he generously shared with us. We will definitely be back again! "
