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.

We have appreciated the kindness and the availability of the staff. They helped us to find a place to dinner when we arrived, they booked tables at different restaurants for us... The location of the lodge is practical to visit the different areas in the city. Moreover, the view on the city from the lodge is spectacular. You will love... More

(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
