The lodge give you the feeling of belonging to their family.The hospitality is warm and personal.Together with the D´wine restaurant it is a perfect stay if you want a quiet stay with excellent menu and nice choice of wine and not to forget: it is close to many golfcourses.

The Lodge is truly magnificent. The grounds are lush and the pool inviting. Our room was handsomely appointed with attention to detail, extremely comfortable and spotless. The entire staff is very accommodating,knowledgeable and are willing to go the extra mile to ensure any request is given the utmost attention. Bkfst was great, nice selection of fruits, cereals, eggs,yogurt, breads, great coffee. Dinners at D'Vine was wonderful. Only the freshest of ingredients are used and presented beautifully, and there is a fine selection of wines to choose from. The location is ideal for visiting Cape Town, the Winelands as well as driving the Coastal Route. Many thanks to the entire staff for making our stay a very memorable one.

We stayed at Willowbrook 6 years ago when it was a top class lodge with a top class restaurant. Unfortunately, the lodge has not really been kept up to date (bathrooms are now really old and badly in need of renevation) and the restaurant is nothing special anymore. Hence overpriced. Good location for the wine area.

We stayed two nights and then again three nights in this hotel and enjoyed it very much,
the setting is real nice with all rooms having their own terrace opening into the splendid garden. Personnel were very friendly and assisted with all our needs.
We also visited the D'vine restaurant a couple of times and agree that it is among the best restaurants in the region

This was our third visit to Willowbrook Lodge and we will probably go again. We found it in the Portfolio Retreats Collection booklet as a good location for driving to Stellenbosch and its wine routes as well as to Cape Town and its surrounds. We invariably returned late afternoon and chilled out by the pool. Getting around would not have been so easy without a rental car.

The country house setting is peaceful and elegant and the gardens well maintained. There are 11 bedrooms but we have only stayed in the basic rooms which are perfectly adequate with TV, frig, tea/coffee, hairdryer, a/c (noisy - we preferred the overhead fan).

We dined each evening at the lodge's fine-dining restaurant where guests are often outnumbered by non-residents. This was never a problem as we were always allocated our own waitress. We soon learned to pass on the starter as a concession to our waistlines!

It is probably the friendly, efficient, well managed staff who encourage us to return - not just the place.

There's no spa, gym or nightlife on site, more like just staying at someone's house.

We are not golfers but fellow guests were there for the local golf courses.
