We had a beautiful, spacious room with an amazing view of Table Mountain! The hotel was authentically African and the staff were lovely. There was a safe and secure car park within the hotel which was a great amenity to have! However, it is a pity that wifi was not included in the room rate and that we were not... More

Disappointed in no free Wi-Fi - thought hotels charging was a thing of the past. The breakfast restaurant is a bit "dated" and could do with a revamp. The breakfast buffet has a great selection. Staff great, friendly and always willing.

We stayed here for 4 nights. We paid for a king suite and ended up staying in a 9th floor loft. Very beautifully presented and all the amenities. The only problem was that the bathroom was tiny and it wasn't sound proof so we could hear next doors music. The breakfast was tasty and we booked a day trip to... More

First, as we got to the hotel, the staff at the front desk was unfriendly, cold and spoke with us in monosyllables almost - definitely no smile. We had to tip her to improve the level of warmth in her interactions with us. Post that we had a string of issues, WiFi was NOT free (it was free in Johannesburg... More

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights from 8 - 12 August. Service was excellent, staff were friendly and the room was clean and bright. Will definitely stay there again. The hotel was booked through a Kulula Holiday package and was also the cheapest - excellent value for money!

I've stayed here several times and generally had good experiences but this last time was very disappointing. The food at the restaurant was very disappointing - snails were freezing, sole was off and not much ion the way of an apology - response from front desk poor on coffee request, aircon was freezing

The rooms are old Art Deco, with sherry on arrival. The bath was huge, as was the room and very affordable. The staff were so friendly one lady at reception even leant me her umbrella to use when we walked to dinner for the night. If you're looking for something easy and friendly, Cape Town lodge is it. It's also... More

The rooms have great views - ours had a view of Table Mountain. The staff were helpful but we had a problem with our television and it took three calls to sort out. Parking is a huge problem. Fortunately we were able to find parking with easy access. Some parking bays could result in you being parked in. It would... More
