The accommodations and staff were outstanding. The owner, Jeff, is particularly helpful and kind going out of his way to get to know and help each guest. The breakfast was great in a pleasant atmosphere. The bed and shower were great. I would also recommend renting a car and driving yourself around as this was about R300 where you will... More

A great base for exploring Cape Town. Conveniently situated in the green point area not far from one of the Hop on Hop off bus stops! Comfortable bed and pillows. Art Deco decor in public areas which gives it a unique feel. Rooms arranged around a central atrium taking advantage of the natural light. Honesty bar so refreshments available at... More

As ex Capetonians on holiday from Australia we stayed here for 10 days in March with my husband and adult daughter. My husband and I had the room in the front No 4. What we loved about this room was the size, although on a pleasure visit it would be great for a business trip too. The traffic which does... More

Having stayed at Head South Lodge on quite a few occasions now for both business and pleasure, I only have good things to say. All of the staff are particularly friendly and helpful from Jeff the owner through to Ramona, Teddy, Caley, Annie, Philip and Lena (all of the names I have learned so far). Every member of the team... More

Good value for money. The owner and staff are GREAT! Ramona especially was so hopeful. Less than R50 taxi too waterfront and most tourist places. Right next to stadium and less than R100 taxis to table mountain. Rooms were great. Thank you for making life easier.:)
