The hotel looks over the whole of Cape Town from the top of the hill. Short drive to most attractions. Apparently the area surrounding the hotel is not safe at night, so it is recommended to get a taxi. The rooms are modern and comfortable, however, the bathroom is a bit squishy. The staff are extremely helpful (especially Keithland (?)... More

Positive: + Stunning views + Easy drive to most attractions + Nice patios and bar + Modern decor + Very clean + Nice staff Negative: + I would not advise walking around the area, but the hotel itself is safe. + Breakfast is not worth the price, rather something nice and unique in nearby Long street + WiFi is very...

Very affordable lodge built up the mountainside. Complicated layout but lifts and ramps where necessary. Smallish room built for efficiencies with good quality furnishings and fittings. Very close to restaurant strip and the V&A waterfront.

The location of the lodge is practical for both tourist and business travel with easy access to the different areas of the city. You will need to have transport either your own or a taxi to access the... More

We stayed 4 nights. Very helpful staff, pleasant and polite, nothing too much trouble for them. The rooms are small and could be better laid out. Rooms quite adequate and clean. Bed very comfortable. Breakfast good variety and plenty of it. Don't expect a typical English cooked breakfast. Sausages are beef! Bacon and eggs, beans and mushrooms available. Toast etc.... More

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.
