We had one of the self catering lodges which was perfect, well equipped and very comfortable. The view from the balcony overlooked Somerset West and Gordon's Bay and the sunsets were beautiful. Rose welcomed us and was very friendly and helpful. The walks around the estate were good with mountain scenery around you and also a lake and nature reserve....

Friendly team, glorious location and views to die for - what more could you possibly want? Throw in great walks, food and it all adds up to a wonderful weekend, enriched by some wonderful vineyards within easy reach.

Very nice comfortable B&B located in the mountains overlooking Somerset West and Gorden Bay. The rooms are very comfortable, nice and quiet.

This was a quaint and comfortable hotel with friendly and helpful staff. We occupied a small suite of rooms on the first floor overlooking a stunning view of Somerset West and False Bay. The hotel is set in woodland surrounded by vineyards and the Helderburg mountains. Rose was engaging and offered several suggestions of places to visit during our stay....

We drove up the winding road and were stunned by the gorgeous view that awaited us from the room at Lalapanzi. The rooms were well appointed and the hosts did a tremendous job welcoming our large, jet lagged and reunited group who'd convened for our close friends wedding. Breakfast was a great spread and the staff were all too accommodating...
