First stop in Cape town and a bit of a strain to locate. That said its position is very good, an easy walk into the central area ( otherwise 50R taxi to the V&A) and a very easy drive to Table Mountain cable car. Far too busy in the morning, we went at 1800hrs for the sunset, half price and... More

Good location in fine old building. Poorly managed, no pillowcases first night, tea and coffee not replenished daily, only a few local TV stations with poor reception, intermittent wi-fi, pool empty, safe not working. Premium price, but not up to standard.

I travel for Business , although location is great & bed was comfortable. Facilities were very basic & I avoided breakfast most of the morning as hardly anything was catered for vegetarians. TV was very very basic & there was no wifii most of the time. On the positive side there is very beautiful garden in front of the Lodge... More

Majority of the staff were polite and helpful. Our only complaint was breakfast, totally disorganised, getting in is the first problem, part was buffet but you had to ask for eggs,... More

We spent a few nights here on a tour of the Garden Route. The lodge is an old Victorian building so is not all polished chrome and fine fittings. It is in a quiet area and just a short taxi ride to downtown Capetown. Staff were very helpful (especially Juan who tried to help us with sorting out Avis Car... More

The lodge it’s self is quaint and adequate, the location is good with V&A a short taxi ride away and also the ‘Hop on, Hop off’ bus a stroll away as well. When we arrived we were in the standard room but they advised we would stay in that room for the first night but our next two nights we... More

In a good location and with friendly staff, we cannot really recommend this property. Unfortunately our room was small and was not clean. Things were not rectified straight away, until Nadia was on duty and upgraded us. Even then, although a lot better, robert i is correct in terms of swimming pool and general layout. It is a good area... More

Well situated. Comfortable rooms and friendly staff. A great place to stay. The only downside is that normally you have to park on the street, but they made allowances for my wife's disability.
