About SW1 Lodge

A warm welcome to our beautiful, relaxing and heartful Guesthouse set in a leafy suburb of Somerset West, on the doorstep of the Cape Winelands.
We and our small dedicated team will do everything we can to offer you an unforgettable stay, and we look forward to SW1 becoming your second home far from home.
