About Somerset Lodge

Somerset Lodge is graded as a 3 star hotel by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa. It is a full service hotel and guest house with restaurant and is noted for its traditional menu. It is the only 3 star hotel in the area and therefore ideally suited in terms of price for the mid range traveller.

Somerset Lodge is a spacious family owned hotel and guesthouse with a warm friendly atmosphere and comfortable en suite bedrooms. It is the oldest recognised resting spot for travellers in the area, the original Cape Dutch farmhouse dates back to 1850. What was the original horse and carriage changing station in Somerset West in 1895, Somerset Lodge is now a popular destination for both business and holiday travellers.


Each of the rooms is individually decorated and has its' own charm and character. All have direct dial telephones, satellite television and en suite bathrooms. Choose from our choice of single, twin, double or family rooms.


The restaurant offers a full a la carte selection and includes game specialities such as ostrich, springbok, kudu, warthog and crocodile tail. Guests can enjoy one of our daily lunch specials in either the dining area or under a canopy of vines in the court yard. Relax in our local, the "Arksey Village Pub" where you can sip a long refreshing drink or splash out and sample some of the fine Scotch, Irish and single malt whiskies from Simon's famous collection.

Additional Services

Airport transfers are also available to and from Somerset Lodge.


Somerset Lodge is ideally situated between the sea and the Cape Winelands and is the perfect base for your stay in the Western Cape.
