Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa, the chic four-star boutique hotel in Somerset West, has been renovated and now boasts a modern, sophisticated style. However, elegance and comfort have not been forgotten; the historic Cape Dutch buildings have been lovingly restored and the country feeling has been retained. A replica of a quaint Irish chapel has been added, making it a perfect wedding venue, while conference facilities and a luxury spa bring the hotel up to date. The new Magnolia restaurant serves contemporary cuisine with a twist, while the Irish-style Skelligs is now a popular gastro pub serving wholesome lunches and traditional pub dinners.
