A friend and I stayed at the Gap Lodge during CTIJF weekend. It's a beautiful B&B with great staff. We walked to most places because it is a central and safe area. They have a cleaning service, wifi and aircon.

Hosts were gracious and welcoming. Place was modern. Breakfast was very good and satisfying. Room was small. Entrance/Exit house door and gate were difficult to use. No mountain views. Place is more suitable for younger people.

I stayed for 2 days at The Gap Lodge. It is literally at the bottom of Table Mountain and has beautiful views of Cape Town. Fuss-free and easy to feel at home. I was hardly around during the day and went out til late but for a B&B the exclusivity is almost like a hotel's, you can come and go... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Gap Lodge. It's in walking distance from the lively Kloof Street with its many nice restaurants. Linda and Leroy are wonderful hosts who take very well care of their guests. The room was a bit small, but has all it needed and everything was very clean and in good shape. The breakfast was...

Gap Lodge is located perfectly to experience Table Mountain area and Cape Town in general. Lots of restaurants close by in Kloof Street. Linda And Le Roi are very friendly hosts and made us feel at home at once.

The owners were very friendly and open. We stayed only for a single night, but were very pleased with the service and the price / service ratio. The doubleroom was appropriate in size, although not really spacious. The location was very good for walks into the town centre. The location has a very nice view into the neighbours garden, which...

We stayed at the Gap Lodge for 5 days during our holiday in Cape Town. The location is really great as it is near to Kloof Street (with great bars and restaurants) and also to table mountain or Camps Bay. The rooms are very nice and also clean. Breakfast was always really good and we ate on the great terrace,... More

I was looking for somewhere peaceful to stay but not too far away from activity. Gap Lodge was ideal - far enough up Kloofnek Rd so that you were away from the noise and close to Lions Head but very close to Kloof St (walking distance) and they accommodated me for three nights on very short notice. Le Roi and... More

We needed a b&b in CT for a couple of days at short notice - Gap lodge seemed the best value, and although it looked like a fortress in the pictures, turned out to be a great experience. Contrary to the pictures the setting is lush and green, it is close to all amenities, with excellent value facilites and very... More

A very nice B&B! Wonderful owner, lot of privacy and great breakfasts! The location is also a bonus as it is central to Cape Town, very easy to get around. I would recommend this B&B to anyone as it was great staying there.
