I visited this hotel with my partner and stayed there for 2 nights. Perfect location. Rooms are clean and lovely. Views are great. Sweet melodies at breakfast. It was a beautiful experience in general. Parking is a bit of a problem though, it could do with more space but at least it is very safe with 24hr security!

This is a lovely hotel in a very good location and it is also very good value for money. The rooms are great, it is very clean, the bar and restaurant are very good, if a bit expensive, breakfast is marvellous...BUT the reception staff are bloody awful. I arrived at 10am, hoping to leave my bag for the day. I... More

The Cape Town Lodge was recommended by my hosts on a May 2015 business trip. Turned out to be a very nice choice. The rooms aren't large but efficient and many have views of the bay. Nice bed. Very nice breakfast buffet included. The Famous Butchers Grill is an excellent steakhouse off the lobby. Very convenient location near everything. I... More

The location of the hotel is very convenient for business travelers. The beautiful city with great restaurants around makes it perfect to stay in Cape Town Lodge. The hotel is nice and comfortable but make sure not to arrive before checkin time

Our 1 night stay at the Cape Town Lodge was notable for excellent staff when checking in late in the evening. The added touch of a call from reception 5 minutes after getting to the room simply to ask if all was in order was greatly appreciated. Very well appointed loft room was clean and comfortable. In all, very good... More

My three nights at the Cape Town Lodge Hotel were excellent. The room was clean and had everything I needed and with the curtains drawn was pitch black, not to mention the shower was excellent. The hotel's location is extremely convenient - a few steps from a couple of restaurants/pubs on Bree Street and 20 minutes drive from the airport.... More

There is nothing wrong with the hotel itself, but a few small things make it an average experience: the check-in process was badly handled. We wanted to check in 30 minutes before "hotel " policy and systems" allow. Coming from a hospitality background myself, I know the problems one can have with early cvheck-ins, but seriously guys, there are ways... More

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your hotel. The front office were fantastic. I saw this not only with myself, but also observing them assisting non English speaking tourists. In particular I made a note of Darryl Rosslind, who I thought was exceptional. I have travelled world-wide on business, for many years, averaging 10-12 trips p.a. and... More

I have stayed here more than a few times and whether it's the manager or the waitron in the restaurant they remember me and what I like. They are friendly and that's what I like. They also have a good breakfast.
