I stayed at the lodge for about 2 weeks. Since I will be in CT for longer, I needed a place I could stay until I had found a long-term apartment. Lisa gave me a warm welcome and made sure I had everything I needed. The rooms are all very clean and comfortable. As I had to extend my stay... More

Booked the liberty lodge for our first 3 nights in Cape Town and it was perfect. Arrived very early, dropped our luggage and Ruth gave us an overview of the lodge and some ideas for things to do before our 3pm Robben Island tour. Was very pleased with the location, around a lot of good places to eat and drink,... More

Today, it combines a skillful mix of Victorian, Art Deco and contemporary decor, with some stunning feature pieces. Perfectly situated to make the most of your Cape Town holiday or business trip, Liberty Lodge sits on the lower slopes between Table Mountain cable car station and Cape Town CBD. Restaurants and cafes abound in trendy Tamboerskloof and tourist sights are in close proximity. The four uniquely decorated rooms are equipped with air-conditioning and heaters, an electronic wall safe, hairdryer, a range of toiletries and most importantly comfortable beds! Complimentary wi-fi and safe on street parking is available. A hearty hot and cold breakfast is served every morning to set you up for the day either inside or outside in the charming ground-floor greenery courtyard. This homely Tamboerskloof Bed and Breakfast provides your respite from a busy day and is run by owner, Ruth Parsons, who extends a warm, personal welcome. Liberty Lodge appeals to young and old, singles and couples, on holiday or working, all of whom know that convivial surroundings and a comfortable bed waits.No Children under 12 allowed!! ... more   less
