My group of friends and I decided to change our scenery and moved to Cape Town Lodge for a 2 night stay. Initially, we were very impressed with the lobby decor when we first walked which was preceded by great price we got on Booking.com. However, the 1st blow to this facade was the whole internet voucher situation. Not only... More

We used up some of our Avios points and got 5 nights at Cape Town lodge, including breakfast for a very decent prince. We arranged a pick up and drop off for the airport too, both went smoothly and both drivers were very nice and professional. Our room wasn't the biggest and looked out in the middle of the hotel...

I stayed at Cape Town Lodge for 4 nights, and have to say it was an excellent experience. The location is great and the the room was even better. The hotel is in a perfect spot in the heart of Cape Town near the Bo Kaap neighborhood and close to anything and everything you would like to see from the... More

A well situated hotel- close to Cape Town's main attractions. A lovely view of Table Mountain from our bedroom. Our room was spacious, comfortable and well serviced. There were a few minor issues. The card keys to the room often malfunctioned and had to be reprogrammed at reception. The two elevators were super slow and we did not find the... More

After a significant booking problem was solved by the redoubtable accommodation and reservations manager Cindy - she really did go the extra mile for us - we had a wonderful few days at Cape Town Lodge. Having decided to try a city centre location rather than our usual Sea Point places, we were a little apprehensive, but certainly not disappointed.... More

We were on a 'package' holiday with a 4 night stay in Cape Town to start. This was the hotel we were booked into and we were very pleased with it. Our room was large with bathroom with a bath, flat screen TV etc. Strange set up with the wardrobe as it was set into the corner and we could... More

We live down the coast and when we go to Cape Town we normally stay at the Lodge hotel. Every time has been a good experience. The rooms are great and the location is ideal for all the food spots in kloof street as well as the sea point side. We will definitely be back!

We needed to be in Cape Town in the downtown area for a Government appointment so we decided to go in the night before and not be rushed in the morning. The Cape Town Lodge has a 4 star rating and prices to match. The décor and rooms are certainly 4 star plus. The restaurant is the Butchers Block. First... More

I am still staying at this hotel as I write this. The hotel staff is awful. As I waited for the lift some manager named Donovan s. was complaining about a guest and insulting her right in front of me. It was despicable. The front desk staff dont listen to anything you say and they are irreverent and impatient. I... More
