Six years ago I wrote a review on Willowbrook and having returned to stay there both last year and this year I simply have to say it is better than ever. The rooms have been upgraded, the restaurant now offers a lunch menu and that, along with the evening dinners offers delicious food. Lisa and her staff are SO friendly and helpful and secured us good tables to dine at the nearby Vineyard restaurants. We shall definitely be returning.

We were at Lisa’s Willowbrook Country House for a week of golfing and wine tasting. It was a great place to stay with a lovely intimate family style atmosphere. The choice of breakfast was small but well selected, consisting of largely homemade offerings. The house has got a small pool witch we didn’t test but looked quite cute. The rooms are of generous size and neatly furnished. All in all we had a great time and believe that this place is of good value for money well placed to do all sorts of excursions in the beautiful region of Somerset West. Thanks to Lisa and her nice stuff. Cheers Angelina & Johann

Willowbrook is the perfect place to stay if you want to explore the Western Cape. The country house is ideally located in the beautiful, safe and calm Somerset West; just a 40 min drive to Cape Town's city center and close to various beautiful wine estates, for example Vergelegen, Morgenster and Lourensford which are just around the corner, and a bit further away (a 15-20 min drive) you can find more great wine farms in for example Stellenbosch. Me and my wife stayed 12 nights in a romantic executive room, we loved the king-size bed and spacious bathroom with separate bath and shower. There were also European outlets available in the room, a minibar and a safe, which was very convenient. The staff was very friendly and the Italian owner Lisa, a kind and pleasant, energetic and straightforward woman, made our trip even better by providing various tips for restaurants, wine estates etc. and informing us with handy information about the different areas that we would visit. We loved the garden with all the beautiful flowers that surrounds the country house. You can clearly see that a lot of work has been put into their green garden. We liked to cool down and relax at the swimming pool (accompanied with comfortable sunbeds) in the afternoons after our day trips with our rental car. We had dinner at the in-house restaurant a couple of evenings and the fish and meat options that we ordered were very tasty and well priced. We believe Willowbrook is the perfect place and starting point to explore the amazing area of the Western Cape.
