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

A group of us stayed at the Head South Lodge and it was a really pleasant stay. the people are genuinely friendly and helpful and accommodated our different needs and requests. There was a guard out front watching the cars all night which made us rest a lot easier. the rooms are very well sized and in great condition. the... 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

The friendly staff makes the stay worthwhile. The location is also great. It is also a cab ride away from excellent shopping and a walk away from the shore front. You can even walk to the tour bus from the hotel. Wonderful!

While a bit on the pricey side, Head South Lodge was an excellent stay for the two nights my fiance and I spent there. The room was quiet and cool and we received great service and help in planning our days. The location is fine if you have a car or use taxis, or if you don't mind long walks.... More

We chose this hotel as it seemed close to Greenpoint stadium. From a safety perspective in SA it was slightly further than we hoped, mainly for walking back in the early hours of the morning when there were no more crowds left to walk with (fine for walking during the day). This is not a negative on the hotels part... More
