It's central, it's clean, it's beatifully furnished (the owner told us that he buys all the furniture at auctions - a real collector). The owner was very helpful and assisted us in organizing lots of activities. His cook must be the most adorable person you'll meet south of the equator!

Like the rooms all of them are different styled, the pool area so relaxing maybe an idea for the owner to heat the pool for the colder months? Cant wait to go back again, next time we will have more time and not only stay for a night!

A perfect B&B in Green Point. Ideally located for visiting Cape Town and the surroundings. The rooms were beautiful, comfortable and impecable clean. The breakfast was superb and Phillip and other staff were very professional, helpful and did everything to make us feel welcome. We would definitely recommend it!

Our family of five spent four nights over New Year at this beautiful lodge/B&B and enjoyed it very much. The quiet location at a 20 min walking distance from V&A was perfect for us. The little pool and the sun deck was a nice place to spend the mornings as well as the afternoon after activities and in the night... More

Philip and Eunice made us feel more than at home. The service was extraordinary! The rooms were absolutely sweet. Service and location better than most hotels! We loved Eunices fresh breakfast. We loved Philips spleen for antique suitcases. We loved the Romney Lodge. We will most certainly come again and recommend the lodge to anyone! Thanks for a great stay!

When we entered the house we already knew that we had made a good choice. Phillip has made this place into a little gem, we were impressed by the attention to detail and décor. The house is one of the oldest in this part of town and the mixture of old architecture with partly modern interior and art was stunning... More
