“A beautiful little gem in Montagu”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

After 8 nights of sleeping at different lodges, it was a delight coming to Somerset Lodge. The place is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The owner is very hospitable and made us feel like we were at a home away from home, offering us the best possible rooms he could. The room had everything we needed an a really comfortable bed and a great shower. I was most pleased to wake up in the morning and find that the kettle already had water to make coffee, and in the fridge there was a little jug of milk. I have never found this anywhere else. There are two cute little puppies who run around and entertain you. The lodge has a pool outside the room we stayed in and it was amazing to sit outside at night by the poolside and watch the stars. If you are in Montagu, stay here!!!

From the moment I signed the visitors' book, I knew my stay would be happy, comfortable,and cheery. David's hospitality was warm and he spared no effort in assisting me even with the challenge of my Smartphone. My suite was beautifully appointed and comfortable and my every need was taken care of ( and with a cheery smile). I can recommend this property I will visit again and again. Aideen O'Mara

The (self catering) cottage in the Somerset Lodge is comfortable and David is a very enjoyable host. Elaborate cooking is not advisable (the electric cooking unit is somewhat primitive), but making eg a salad is quite ok. Somerset Lodge is in a quiet area of Montagu, walking distance from the centre

The slept very good in a quiet atmosphere .There isn't more to say, it was really okay .It was fine to have the garage nearby in the room.

Very convenient for overnight stop in Montagu travelling along Route 62. Owner charming and couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable including advice on where to eat and booking this for us (very useful when you are only in an area for 1 day). Breakfast excellent. Only very slight niggle - pool was very small and this was not made clear in the advertising. But would recommend as very good value.
