I stayed for 6 nights at Boulders Beach Lodge (Jan., 2016). I arrived a little late (after 5pm) on a Sunday but had no problems checking in. Room 1 (Mountain View) had a faulty toilet, so the next day I was offered another better room (Room 14) upstairs at no extra charge. The rooms need a little renovation but are... More

I was a little disappointed with my stay at Boulders Beach Lodge, since I felt the Lodge depends too much on its location and not enough on providing an unforgettable accommodation experience. The paint / plaster came off the wall when I opened the curtain, the bedside lamp had a current running through it and shocked me every time I... More

We ve been there a couple of times now, but this time was terrible. Our money was stolen out of our locked room. In this case the management was not helpful. Service and rooms definitely need restoration! Restaurant was closed from 6pm - dinner was mot possible. Overall: "good old times are over"!!!

Great view of the sea, right on the trail, nice rooms. Heard the penguins from our room! Breakfast served late with nice views of water. Very good value. Highly recommended. Web site not that easy to navigate, but well worth working through.

Same price than a superb lodge where we stayed in Paternoster (South Africa) fews days ago but nothing to see. Poor quality, almost durty and unconfortable. We even had to pay for another coffee at breakfast. Nos real curtains in bedrroms at night.

The Lodge overlooks the beach and penguin colony on the shore of False Bay. It is truly just a few steps to the parking area, boardwalk and trails. Except for the braying penguins, it is a quiet and pleasant, well kept property. It is a great location for exploring the southern Cape and is about 45 minute south of Cape... More

We stayed there to be close to the penguin colony and were not disappointed. The hotel is situated just next to the colony and there was even an occupied nest inside the premises. The penguins were not very loud when we were there. The staff was friendly but the hotel in itself is really in need of some renovation. It... More

The room sea view was not so perfect. A renovation inside and some clean up is needed. The place is very good located so close to the pinquins rock. The restaurant was closed in the evening but the breakfast and lunch was fine. Our kayak trip was a great experience.

Great please if you want to stay near penguins. Actually one of them can be next to your doors - and penguin can be very loud at night. Staff very nice. Boulders beach is just next to your entrance. Breakfast ok.

The location is great and unbeatable - penguins can be closely watched day and night which we really liked. However, our family unit was far too overpriced for what it had to offer - beds were okay, but it was quite chilly and needed some renovation on the walls and bathroom, kitchen barely equipped. In summary: super to experience the... More
