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.

Awesome stay at Head South Lodge! The owner and staff made me feel extremely welcome and it really felt like a home away from home. A beautiful setting, comfy rooms and a delish breakfast made for a very relaxing stay! Thank you very much! ☺

Me and my partner spent couple of days in this place. Well located, clean room, really helpful staff. However, for the price it could have been better. The windows of the room can be opened from outside as its screws were fallen off, even though safe and secured, it can leave some in phobia. There could be difference in online... More

Thanks for posting this review. I don't understand why you didn't get eggs. We have farm fresh, free range eggs delivered to us every week, and provide scrambled as a matter of course, and most often 'made to order'. Sorry you weren't made aware of this. More

The room was really lovely, very comfy bed. I like that there are 2 curtain option. We chose to use the darker curtains and take advantage of a lie in. The breakfast was delicious . We arrived late at night and the on sight manager was very welcoming.

As visiting family in Cape Town we decided to take an hotel for the last two days of our stay in green point. The hotel is quite good furnished.
