Excellent location which meant we were close to the city but high up enough to have awesome views. Room was clean and well presented and we enjoyed breakfast out on the deck. As we had just spent time in Kruger park on safari, we took advantage of their laundry service which helped loads. Secure car park which was good as... More

I stayed here for two nights in July 2016 - room 203 i think it was. The entrance and reception areas as well as the common areas in the hotel as quite good, however when it comes to the room it fell short. The beds were extremely springy.. seems to be on its way out. The bathroom was most disappointing.... More

This was mine and my partners final stop after a six month trip and it was beautiful! The staff are so incredibly polite and helpful with advising what to do and where and where not to go. They couldn't have done any more for us. The room was beautifully decorated. The bed was super comfortable. We had a lovely balcony... More

Signal Hill Lodge is in a great, quiet location above Bo Kaap, within easy walking distance of Bree Street and Long Street, although at the top of a fairly steep hill so would not be ideal for anyone with walking difficulties. The room was basic and quite small but the bed was very comfortable and the room had a stunning... More

We made our reservation through booking.com for three rooms, but clearly stated that one person would stay one night less that the others. The rooms were very cramped and the bathroom offered no privacy. The internet connection was very sporadic. The person that stayed one night less was charged for an extra night. The receptionist agreed that it was the... More

I guess you get what you pay for. I read the reviews here & on booking.com before I visited the place so I kinda knew what to look out for. Nice & affordable, excellent views even though our room (302) had a view of the pool which I didn't mind. The pool crawler made an irritating noise though when it... More

Rooms are small for a 4 Star appointed Hotel. The shower and toilet area very small and "push" button run, with a glass door providing privacy from the bedroom. The glass door did not close properly so ablutions are a shared experience with your partner. I hate that. Coffee sachets - 2 per room per day. A bit mean. Stairs... More

We stayed as a family (mum, dad and 2 young teenage sons) and had an absolute ball. The Lodge is clean, very central, has wonderful friendly staff and the most amazing views. We were able to walk into town in 10 minutes and to the Waterfront in 25. Really impressed with the price of the Lodge too and particularly commend... More
