We planned to stay for 6 nights, but booked 2 more nights. We loved staying at Signal Hill Lodge. They offered free and secure parking. Location is perfect, only ten walking minutes away from Lomg street. From the balconies you have an amazing view of the City, so it's nice to come back after a day of exploring the city... More

Great view from the deck area of Cape Town. The room was small, but clean and tidy. The shower/basin mechanism as interesting but functional. There's only 1 bedside table which makes means you just have stuff everywhere. After asking for the wifi password 3 times without success we successfully accosted another guest. It was so useless (couldn't upload a 100k... More

Stayed here as a couple for a week. Initially thought it was out of town, but we found the walk to and from town pleasurable, not to mention getting a taxi into town was only R20. The rooms are satisfactory, but could do with some side tables on either sides of the bed. The shower mechanism looked challenging but once... More

Reasonable, comfortable and excellent service. Would recommend staying there to anyone. If i was to find any fault. Interesting hot water on demand system for shower and basin, which is either too hot or too cold. But such a minor problem, it never bothered me. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Beautiful views dominate the areas in the hotel looking over Capetown. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfasts made to order daily. The room was very comfortable. One night the staff were having a braai and were quite welcoming to invite us to join. Unfortunately we'd just returned from dinner or we would have joined. Will definitely stay here again... More

The place is not so easy to find, though I'm from Cape Town, I did struggle a little with finding the place. The staff are nice and the place is great too, pity I always arrive there at night and have to leave early in the morning so I haven't really had a chance to explore and enjoy the entire... More

I will in my life never understand why, if you make the trouble to have an en-suite, why,oh why do you not put a proper door on with some privacy? The staff are great, the view is great but the rooms that don't have a balcony are really small. Wifi reception was not great. Did get a bit too noisy... More

A beautiful hotel, and gorgeous views from the public spaces, and your room. A new hotel, but we never had decent water pressure in the shower for our 4 night stay, even though we notified management 3 times. It is a ways uphill, and even the walk down taxed the backs of our calves, and we always took a taxi... More

Lovely room, okay breakfast buffet, gorgeous view over table mountain, staff was nice and helpful. One thing is that you have to have a car or get in a cab if you're going to or from the hotel after dark, since you have to pass a "not so nice" neighbourhood on the way.
