This guesthouse is situated in a good position for easy access to anywhere you want to go in Cape Town. Ruth was a very good hostess and gave us some good advice on the area. There are lots of good restaurants around which we enjoyed our favorite being beleza which was just down the kloofnek rd. The rooms were very... 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

Stayed 4 days at Liberty Lodge. Ruth was very welcoming and gave helpful advice. The location is unbeatable - top of Kloof St within walking distance of the city centre and the V&A Waterfront, as well as easy driving / bus distance to Table Mountain and Camps Bay. Lisa and Linda's breakfasts are amazing, and the views from our (shared)... More

My mother, brother and I spent almost a week in Cape Town staying at Liberty Lodge, which is a very comfortable and charming B&B. It is very well located for a wide range of activities in Cape Town, and visitors can safely walk to many of the excellent local restaurants and cafes. The owner, Ruth, and her staff, in particular... More

Liberty Lodge is one of the more delightful places I have ever stayed! Ruth has created the perfect combination of comfort, charm, service and convenience in a great location. My room (Madiba) opened out to a beautiful veranda with an unbelievable view of Table Mountain! She greeted me warmly at a somewhat awkward hour and immediately helped me feel at... More

From Ruth's greeting, to a very comfortable room (Tolkien), to the location near the upper end of Kloof Street, Liberty Lodge worked perfectly for my Cape Town stay, and it will work perfectly for your C T stay. It isn't much to look at from the outside, but once you enter the front door, you'll feel very comfortable. Ruth and... More

We had the best stay at Liberty Lodge - the place is just beautiful. Ruth kindly afforded us the Rhodes room which was breathtakingly beautiful. The views alone of table mountain would be worth it. Ruth is an exceptional host, it is clear that she cares about each and every guest that stays with her and is always willing to... More

We recently stayed at The Lodge for 9 nights and had an excellent time. The location was perfect for us with the town centre and its many delights between 20-25 minutes walk away. The wonderful V & A Waterfront is walkable (45-50 minutes) as well. I would recommend getting a cab back though as it's a mainly uphill walk !... More
