The place is clean, convenient and well-organized. Rooms are very comfortable but small. However you cannot expect more for this price. A small downside is that there are no phones in the room. Breakfast is also quite expensive - however, down the hill there are lots of excellent breakfast options. View is fantastic! The place is upon the hill, so... More

My wife and I spent one weekend night at the Lodge. Great city views, friendly and courteous staff, clean and comfortable rooms, quiet area, free WiFi, tea and coffee in the room and well priced. Our room was a little small, but fine for one night stay. The location is a little difficult to walk to and not really recommended... More

The lodge has great views and has all you need for a comfortable stay - hairdryer, tea/coffee facilities, comfy beds, wifi.

I heard good things of this place from a friend, so booked 5 nights. Unfortunately I had to cancel my trip to Cape Town and subsequently the hotel reservation. I did this more than 7 days in advance, so was only to be charged 10% as a cancellation fee. Instead I was charged full amount which was $200 too much!!!... More

This was our second hotel in Cape Town city. We really liked this hotel. First, the pros: modern, very clean room, friendly staff, great view of the city, outdoor patios and definitely the price! We got ours for really cheap.. The few negatives are it is a bit of a walk through a giant hill to get there (so taxis... More

Gerhard (the lodge manager) works tirelessly to ensure you have a perfect stay. His devotion to making each guest feel welcome by far exceeds customer service standards I've experienced in 5* hotels around the UK and Europe. It seems that nothing is too much trouble for him. The hotel is in a great location, with amazing views. The room had... More

We drove one hour before we found the place, the car rental map were wrong. We were close to give up. So when we finally found it we were really surprised. What a place! Rough surroundings - but really worth the money. Wonderful view over the town. Friendly staff. Good parking. A hidden pearl!

We recently stayed for 2 night (wish it was longer!!) at Signal Hill Lodge in Cape Town. We were warmly welcomed by Gerhard. Our room was spotless, adequate size and a comfie bed. Security was brilliant. The views from the hotel in the evening were special. Great value for money and I'd definitely stay here again. Location to everything was... More

The combination of a comfortable bed, good air conditioning, very clean accommodation, well presented and tasty breakfast with a marvellous view, free secure parking and freely given friendly advice made this a very good choice for my stay in Cape Town. The walk into the city and back or along Military Rd was also welcome exercise.

Great location, friendly staff and the perfect place to plan your trip for sightseeing and nightlife entertainment. Wonderful views on Cape town. Gerhard, the host during my stay, was very proactive and offering perfect service at an extraordinary level that I seldom have experienced. Great place, experience yourself!
