Head South Lodge was a terrific place for us to stay in Cape Town. It is well situated and is lovely, warm and comfortable. Jeff, the owner was very helpful in assisting us in planning our time in Cape Town and additionally in setting up the tours in which we were interested. We were able to hit all of the... More

I am a jet setter in the true sense of the word. I travel constantly all over the world and my choice of accommodation in cape town is Head South Lodge. the rooms and service welcome me like a second home which makes me feel a lot less distressed about being away and that leads to a more productive trip....

We could not recommend Head South Lodge enough. The staff are very personable and make every effort to be of service in providing advice, and help with arrangements in the area. The facility is beautiful, quiet, clean, and the design is refreshingly modern. The breakfasts are lovely and generous and the location is perfect for accessing the waterfront, the area... More

Our stay at head south Lodge was absolutely amazing. The rooms are great and clean. Fresh and super rich breakfast with scrambled eggs, fruit salad, avocado and many more. You can take your drinks as beer, coffee etc from the bar and just write down your amount. Very nice. Jeff is a very nice host. He was always busy giving... More

I love staying at Head South Lodge. It's perfectly situated, with easy access to all the fun things in Cape Town, the staff are always helpful, friendly, and easy to get along with. It kind of feels like you're going to stay at a mates house for a couple of days. Breakfast is always very good. Freshest vegetables, breads, and... More

We were originally booked into another hotel but due to some miscommunication with booking.com they managed to get us into Head South Lodge. The hotel is well located on the main road, a short walk to restaurants and shops and to get to the waterfront etc the staff were happy to organise a great taxi company to collect and drop... More

Stayed at Head South on so many occasions now and my last stay as always was excellent. Really just wanted to update my last review of 25th Mar '14 as the hotel has had some work done to the main entrance/terrace/bar area. I have never had any negative issues at all with Head South and always love my visits but... More

I've stayed here many times and its about time I rate it! I travel a lot, and this place is unique. It's a perfect balance between a home and a hotel, with a real Cape Cosmopolitan feel and character. The owners and staff are really great, and add the warmth, service and personal feel to put it on a pedestal.... More

This was our second time here, the last 10 years ago, Jeff and his staff were just as informative and helpful as before. If you are off on the garden route Jeff will advise you on all sorts of out of the way places to visit, it made our holiday last time. The location is excellent right by the promenade... More
