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

Head South Lodge, so personal, so comfortable and most of all so comfortable. Ramona and Jeff are there on hand at all times. Seeing to all your needs, nothing is ever a problem. Fantastic care by the staff. Efficient, friendly and attentive. Had a very comfortable and memorable week-end there.

My friend and I stayed for 5 nights at Head South Lodge and I would have no qualms recommending my friends to stay there. The owner Jeff and his lovely team and very friendly and helpful. We saw Jeff at breakfast every morning and he gave us lots of useful advise on our itinerary planning whilst his daughter Kay happily... More

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
