Penguins were lovely, room was clean and tidy, food was good, service was without a problem. And a good buy! We stayed two nights while many recommended only one (not much to do!) but the full day was a perfect relaxing day in our one week holiday.

This is a very old establishment in an excellent location which has been given a lick of paint over the old paint. The rooms are basic with doors that are warped and do not close properly. There is built up grime everywhere including the bathroom, which looks like it is out of the 60's. On our 1st morning at the... More

We were expecting 4* & were very disappointed. Firstly met by unfriendly lady on reception who could not find our booking. First room had no hot water. Second room dirty and tired. First time we had been asked to pay up front.... now we know why! Having travelled around S.A. over the last 2 weeks and stayed in 7 different... More

The penguins and the location were great, the hotel not! The rooms are small and the bathroom needs a good clean,, there is no excuse for mouldy grout. It's the only hotel we have ever stayed in where, at breakfast, we could have a cup of tea OR fruit juice, but not both, without incurring an extra charge.

We had a pleasant stay , room basic but comfortable. Restaurant was very busy at lunchtime and food was very good. Unfortunately we could not say the same for the evening! We should have realised when the restaurant was very quiet apart from us and two other tables. Had to send the steak back as it was chewy and the... More

This was such a fun place to stay! The room was cute, with a HUGE tub! There's a great restaurant at the hotel. And there are penguins right outside the hotel!! I was even woken up one night around 1am by a penguin making noise right outside my bedroom! The hotel is a short walk from town, where you can... More

unfriendly staff, shower & toilet flush was not working, small rooms, dirty - TOO EXPENSIVE! The day after we spent a night in a Backpacker --> this was not even half of the price we paid for Boulders Beach Lodge and it was a 100 times better! I would definately NOT recommand this Lodge!

Rooms were small and basic but very clean. A five minute drive to local restaurants or shops. Nice restaurant on site as well. This is a great option if your main desire is to check out the penguins! They are a one minute walk from the penguin park where you can get right next to them. Nice beach nearby as... More

My daughter & I stayed here December 18. Our goal was to see the beach, penguins, and have a comfortable night's sleep before continuing on to Knysna. This place was perfect for that. The laid back vibe was quite a relief after dealing with the crowds and traffic in Cape Town. The lodge is located right next to the beach... More
