Recently stayed (first week in July) in Rose Cottage in Spanish Farm Guest Lodge - absolutely loved it! Location is great - magnificent views of Somerset West from it's elevated position on the hill.

We had a wonderful stay at Spanish Farm Guest lodge. Everyone was friendly and helpful from management to the cleaners. It was clean and beautiful and we had everything and more. :-) My only negative would be the breakfast. For R200 per person you expect more and better quality for the cooked breakfast....

Thank you for staying at Spanish farm. I am pleased to hear that you had a wonderful time here. My sincere apologies that the cooked breakfast was not up to standard, we possibly had an intern making breakfast and not sure why it wasn't great. We do have a large variety of fresh fruits, jogurts, fresh rolls and a selection... More

I used to be one of those people who thought if I'm not at home I deserve to be in a hotel. Spanish farm turned that view upside down when it introduced me real hospitality with the ability to feel you're home. Staff was great, pool was always clean with towels on hand after an afternoon dip. The garden/views? Where... More

This place is just off the scale in terms of brilliance. Elegant, contemporary architecture with unbeatable views towards the coast and mountain range. Log burners, outdoor showers, sublime garden with Eco pool. Nothing else is needed!

What an experience to stay as a guest in my childhood house. The luxurious changes that have been made to the original house are thoughtful and add even more character. The staff are firstclass and nothing was too much for them to do - a really great experience. The breathtaking view of False Bay is as i remember it..
