Cindy R wrote a review Jan 2020
Pretoria, South Africa

Wow ...... what can we say that hasn’t already been said!?!

Upon check in we were surprised by and most appreciative of the free upgrade to the ground floor suite. The size, decor, cleanliness and comfort of the suite took our breath away and the cherry on top was the peaceful patio overlooking the beautiful garden and pool. The following ten nights were spent in pure luxury and we were sad to bid farewell to this up market establishment.

Delicious, freshly prepared breakfasts, served in the open courtyard overlooking the garden and pool were a highlight.

Andrew, the owner and Phillip the assistant manager were gracious hosts who went the extra mile to make us feel welcome and at home. Cindy, the housekeeper, was friendly and efficient and kept our suite clean and sweet smelling.

Thank you Andrew and Phillip for your warm, generous hospitality and the lovely chats we had with you both. We hope to visit again in the near future.

If you are a solo traveler, a businessman/woman or a couple I couldn’t possibly recommend a better spot to stay. The mood is calm, the gardens beautiful and natural, the rooms are perfect, super comfortable and exceptionally clean. I would go as far as to say, I couldn’t wait to get back to the lodge to put my feet up on one of the deck chairs and the sparkling blue pool just to escape to the amazing solitude Waterstone Lodge has to offer. The lodge manager, Phillip is literally like a fairy, now you see him and now you don’t, appearing only when you need him. He also cooks up a fine breakfast in the morning. This spot is a true gem and I would highly recommend it to anyone in need of superb accommodation in Somerset West. I can honestly say I don’t have anything negative to say about this special place.

We arrived late, near midnight from a flight into Cape Town, but everything went smoothly and welcoming and we were soon settled in. Each and every member of staff had smiling faces and our bedroom/bathroom was exquisite. The gardens and pool are extremely well kept so that sitting out on our little terrace with blue skies was perfect. Breakfast on the larger terrace was perfect too. Would definitely recommend.

Waterstone Lodge was the perfect place to use as a base while attending a wedding at Lourensford nearby. Our luxurious room, the Waterstone Suite, felt comfortable and peaceful. Lovely garden view. Host Andrew was friendly and helpful, recommending a great hairdresser to use in the area.

Many thanks yet again to Andrew & his team. This was the 2nd time we have stayed and as our previous stay we couldn’t fault anything. They were really helpful and always on hand if you required anything and really friendly, they always had time for a chat. We were in the pool room which was gorgeous & spacious and was always kept clean to a high standard. Only got back today and have already booked again for next January, as this is such a picturesque place in Somerset West. Would highly recommend Waterstone Lodge for either your holiday or if you are on business.
Best wishes Debbie & Shane

Highly recommended stay! Beautiful and well-appointed rooms and public areas. Attention to detail ensure that the high-end decor remains warm and inviting. Gardens and pool are quiet and beautifully maintained. The owner and staff are exceptionally accommodating and caring. Substantial and beautifully presented breakfasts are included, as are Nespresso machines, fresh milk and cookies in each room. Home away from home!

Clean, comfortable and wonderful staff. Anyone travelling to this part of Capetown should consider Waterstone lodge, you will not regret it, I promise you that. The breakfast spread is value for money and the lodge is situated in a nice and quiet neighborhood.

Would highly recommend. The staff went above and beyond in all aspects of our stay and the rooms are so beautifully presented. The service provided was second to none and the breakfast was delicious - wide range of choice as well. Fantastic location to the wine farms and beach, in a safe location. Big thank you to Andrew for his photography service and even driving us to the wedding 😀 wouldn’t hesitate to stay again, will definitely be for longer next time.

Andrew and Phillip were most accommodating to our requests and great hosts. The ambiance of Waterstone Lodge is great with a very relaxing out door area for breakfast and evening use. My only suggestion is that they introduce a guest honesty bar with some alcoholic refreshments available.
