What a treat this was. The place is decorated so that it feels very much like a lodge - but not in a cheesy way - it just feels right. I didn't realise it at first, but considering it is so close to the city and above Sea Point, the quietness of the place really makes you feel relaxed. There... More

My mom and I stayed at the lodge for a few days in July. Although I agree with the guests that the place is beautifully decorated, and is very clean, I did have a few suggestions for improvement. The patio door was warped and did not close at night, which did not leave me feeling safe at night. Also, the... More

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!

He gave us some valuable tipps and chatting to him was very interesting. We loved the decor of the rooms and the entire house, We had a spacious family room,... More

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!
