One of my new favorite hotels. Only spent 2 nights, traveled solo. The owner is wonderful, super knowledgeable about the region (safaris, animals, etc.), & incredibly helpful to any guest that needs travel advice. His daughter kindly came and picked me up by car when I called totally lost about 3km from the hotel on foot. Breakfast is fresh and... More

Lots of restaurants/shops nearby, including the great Giovanni's Deli. What makes Head South Lodge particularly special is its friendly staff. Jeff had some great tips for what to do in Cape Town and during our... More

I would have no hesitation recommending this establishment to others. As a business traveller breakfast could be earlier during the week, say from 07.00 hrs. Location and security were also perfect for my needs.

Hi Sean. Thanks for the lovely review. Next time you visit, please let management know the night before, that you would like an early breakfast. We certainly arrange early breakfasts for those that require them. It may not be bacon and eggs at 06h30, but it will be something nourishing. All the best Jeff More

We've stayed for four nights and liked it very much. Rooms and breakfast are good and staff is very friendly! The location is OK. it is on a big avenue, but there was no noise in the room. The house is also very charming.
