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.:)

Stayed here for 2 nights Mid Jan and would not hesitate in recommending this gem of a hotel to anybody looking for accommodation in Cape Town. Upon arrival we were assisted in parking by a lovely security staff member, then looked after brilliantly when checking in and then shown to our gorg room, all in very quick time, yet we... More

There are many things that are great about the Head South Lodge! The first that comes to mind is the staff. The girl at the reception (can't believe I lost your name - sorry!!) is amazing! So energetic and nice, she helped us plan our whole stay in Cape Town and gave us some really helpful pointers of what to... More

Stayed here in March 2012 for 4 days and enjoyed it so much, stayed again 3 weeks later for another 3 days. Its just that it won't let me select that date. The hotel is well located a comfortable 20 minute walk from the harbour, which is fine for touristing at looking at things as you go. Small a friendly... More

We stayed at Head South Lodge over the weekend and it was absolutely worth it! Centrally located and very close to the Greenpoint Stadium! We did the Gunrun and only had to walk 5 min to get to our starting point which was wonderful, because there were no parking! If you want to go to a concert at the stadium... More

We stayed at the lodge on Saturday evening 12 Oct. The lodge is conveniently located close to the V&A Waterfront. The staff is friendly and courteous, the rooms well appointed. Loved the honesty bar where you can get a drink and write it up yourself, you just settle the bill on check out. The mattresses were just a tad soft... More

Having been recommended by friends here in Australia of this Lodge I have to say we were not disappointed in any way. We arrived totally exhausted after a long haul flight to Cape Town from the Gold Coast and although our transfer arrangements failed to happened it was certainly pushed to the back of mind on arrival. We felt totally... More

I have stayed at HSL twice now and on both occassions the hospitality has been outstanding. Breakfasts are complete feasts, well laid out, delicious and healthy! The rooms are cosy, with heating (I visited CT during winter) and I did not feel the winter chill in the room nor the dining/entertaining area. The lounge area was cosily lit with a... More
