(1) Excellent location - beautiful view, close to city centre and central for a lot of activities around the cape , yet in a very nicely quiet place. (2) The rooms are not very big but are clean and practical. (3) the food is excellent, (4) staff are friendly and helpful. An area of improvement would be adding phones in... More

First of all, the view from the balcony is spectacular. The rooms, very very small but well appointed. The shower is a new concept designed with eco in mind: takes some getting used to, but it's all good for the environment. We did not have breakfast, but it did look delicious. Apart from the view, the lodge is not in... More

Situated at the bottom of Signal Hill this hotel is a good place to stay. The view on the Cape Town City Bowl is stunning. The rooms are spacious and nice decorated with aircon. People are very, very friendly and we will come back to this quiet place close to the viby center of mother city!

We arrived late on a Thursday night. Franz was there to welcome us. He is a really great person. The venue has great views on the balconies and close to everything you'd want to do in the city, with comfy adequate rooms. Unfortunately their bathroom has very strange and annoying plumbing. Our geyser burst and we ran late waiting for... More

Sean & Nicole Botha. Stayed 1 - 8 December 2014. Scrumptious breakfasts. Very clean. Funky comfortable. Marvellous staff - nothing too difficult for John, Darryn or Ann to organise for us - compliments! Peeves: city noise & smoking - no deck was free of this scourge! Suggestion: a smoker's corner away from the decks with awesome views. Will return!

We stayed there for 4 nights and we enjoyed their services. On the day of checking out we were told to pay R1000 because our friend a marriage officer came and married us on 1 of their balcony for less than 20 mins and was added on our account as a hired venue without our acknowledgement. This fee was secretly... More

As the name says, the lodge is situated on Signal Hill which gives you a fantastic view over Cape Town. After we made the reservation, we got an email with instructions how to get to the Lodge. So check your mail before driving up there, because it could be hard to find. We got warmly welcomed by the hotel manager.... More

I spent two nights at the Signal Hill Lodge while teaching a course at the Cape Town Lodge a few minutes drive down the hill. The views across the City from this boutique hotel are stunning both day an night. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were more than adequate. The room was perfect for my purpose and... More

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
