Location is oke and the food very good. But ... because of the pinguins in the garden right next to the rooms you can't sleep because of the noise they produce! They let us pay after dinner and we complained the next morning. The management promissed to react to us but we never heard something! 50% of the price would... More

We stayed in the Seview family suite for one night with our 5 and 9 year old daughters. The hotel is perfectly situated on Boulders Beach if you are looking to be close to the penguins (which was our reason for choosing this hotel). Whilst the location was perfect, the hotel is very tired and is well due a refurb.... More

This lodge has only one thing going for it: the location. Upon arrival we were met by a very unfriendly and unhelpful lady who at first couldn't find our booking, then informed us that we would be in a twin room instead of the double room we booked. The room was extremely small! The shower temperature and pressure changed constantly,... More

Lovely surroundings, perfect view, beautiful rooms with fantastic bathroom. Excellent service - very friendly and helpful staff. The only issue was the penguins waking us up with their hilarious calls in the middle of the night!

An excellent location to view the penguins at Boulders. A family of penguins with two youngsters was nesting outside my daughters bedroom. The rooms were very pleasant with a good bathroon with bath tub. Tea and coffee making facilities were provided in each bedroom. Breakfast was very well cooked.

We had booked to stay at the lodge for 2 nights but only stayed for 1 as the room we had was very basic. The furniture was old and most of the wood skirting and doors was rotting at the bottom from years of mopping the floor. The toilet seat was so old the wood had split, this is not... More

We are locals. We were very disappointed. Very poor value for money. The receptionist/manageress created a very poor impression throughout. This place should be avoided.The room was average reasonably clean but tatty with date furniture. The outside area need a very good clean up. The establishment should not be charging half of the listed price, A warning to foreigners: There... More

We stayed at Boulders Beach Lodge for one night, purely because the guesthouse we initially booked was overbooked and we had to find a different place to stay at. The thing is that this was during the mining convention and on such short notice Boulders was the only 'reasonably priced' place we found. The 'balcony' was non-existent, it was a... More
