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

It is a perfect place to see the pinguins. Rooms are nice. Our family room has a kitchen so we could have lunch or dinner. The restaurant has a perfect view and good food. It is a good place to visit a lot of nice place around (20 min to Cape hope).

Location is great if you have a car, but then there is no parking spot in a very very busy beach, meaning you will have problems to park. Room with ocean view had almost no view at all, but room was nice (except the shower, where water takes over the entire bathroom floor). Service/reception staff needs to improve strongly, one...

Service is Good but not notable, food is bit pricey with no impressed quality. But the main attraction is visiting Penguins. Room is clean, and bed is comfort but no entertainment at all. Location is perfect if you only want to live next to the Penguins, otherwise, stay at Simon Town is better for daily life

Want to be close to the Penguins, try this one. The Penguin Reserve is just steps away, the restaurant is busy for lunch and dinner, so join the lot to enjoy good food. Ask for seasonal fish and seafood, you could get a nice surprise! As a bonus, there is no noisy street between you and the sea. The place... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the overnight stay. Very cosy and relaxing. We loved seeing the penguins as well. The view from the top honeymoon suite was awesome! The food at the restaurant was very good, especially breakfast!
