#9 of 42 in Somerset West
Situated in the heart of the Winelands at the foot of the Helderberg Mountain, the beautiful setting of the luxurious B&B - AFRICA-LODGE - (3016 m2) offers you luxurious and stylish accommodation. The swimming pool, which is surrounded by palm trees, and the stunning garden are absolutely private. Secure off-road parking space is available. All our rooms are African styled and have a thatched roof. They are equipped with a four poster bed and a sitting area, tea and coffee making facilities, mini safe, hairdryer, smart TV and refrigerator. The full continental breakfast can be enjoyed either al fresco - weather permitting - in the garden Pavilion. Your hosts will be happy to arrange all your bookings (restaurant, tours, etc). Surrounded by many famous wine estates, Somerset West is the ideal base for exploring the entire Cape Peninsula: Cape Town with its V&A Waterfront, the Table Mountain or the famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Robben Island, The Cape of Good Hope or the penguins in Simon's Town are other favourite Hot Spots. The wine estates of Somerset West, Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek offer great wine tastings. All that plus several golf courses, the scenic beaches of Strand, Gordon's Bay and the Garden and Whale routes are within easy reach. Golfing, mountain biking, riding, fly fishing, wave riding, shark diving, hiking, abseiling: exciting things to do for the sporty guest.

The breakfast "buffet" was not really great, but the hosts of the lodge tried their best to make our stay pleasant. Their garden is absolutely gorgeous and a pleasure to sit outside your room for a sun downer.

Africa Lodge was the place to be for the last 3 days of our Southafrican vacation. And it is a wonderful place to be!!! The hosts are so friendly and helpfull, the breakfast outside a good start in the day, the lovely garden with the flowers and blooming bushes, the nice big pool to relax and lie in the shade or sun...everything was perfect and we loved it. We will be back !!!!!

Family room great size and tastefully furnished. We focused exploring The Winelands area and The Strand. Don't know how pleasant the drive to/from Cape Town in rush hour would be. All homes in this upper class neighborhood behind gates. Wonderful breakfasts. Helpful hosts. In the winter we were the only guests, so didn't see the garden/grounds. Take paper & pen for instructions on how to get back on to the highway in both directions. It's easy one way, not so, to remember from the other, esp. at night. Wolf helped heave the luggage upstairs.
