Acorn lodge feels like home away from home. The lodge is situated very close to the University of Cape Town. The rooms are serviced everyday. Furthermore, June is a pleasant, helpful and very caring host. To top it off, her breakfasts are very delicious! A must for travelers visiting the Cape.

Owner is very "hands-on", promptly preparing breakfast herself. We stayed in the smallest room, which we found quite adequate for the 2 of us. Spacious lounge area, and kitchen available for guests to make themselves sandwiches etc.

We booked Acorn Lodge for a group of 8 ex UCT friends on a self-catering basis and it turned out to be an excellent arrangement, with June (the friendly owner) entrusting us with the care of her property as she set off for an overseas holiday. Having the lodge to ourselves offered great flexibility; we could come and go as... More
