“A great stay in Capetown!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We had a great stay at Gap Lodge. It is queit and very convenient in terms of location. We felt the breakfast range was very limiting and also the TV channels very limited. All the same a great place.

Thank you for staying at Gap Lodge. We are glad that you enjoyed our beautiful city, despite the rain!
Our breakfast consist of 3 different serials, fruit juice, fresh fruits, 3 types of bread, variety of fruit yoghurts and natural yoghurt, 3 different types of jam, freshly made plunger coffee and 2 selections of tea's
plus hot breakfast consisting of eggs (fried, scrambled, poached, boiled or omelette), bacon and fried tomato. We believe this is good value for money, but we are always open for suggestions.
Warm regards

I recently stayed at Gap Lodge and what a great experience!!! The hosts, Le Roi and Linda, are wonderful and made me feel at home right away. The location is excellent; close to the Waterfront and going up Table Mountain; which are two of the main attractions in Cape Town. Le Roi is a tour guide and very knowledgeable about places to see in the area. He can take you on a variety of breathtaking tours in and around Cape town. The breakfasts are delicious and can be taken on the patio with wonderful views of the garden. As to other visitors complaining about TV channels; it did not bother me at all; I was there to see Cape Town and nót to watch TV. The room and en-suite bathroom was clean and nicely decorated and I had more than enough space for all my luggage. Compared to other B&B's and hotels in the area, it was excellent value for money and I had money left to spend on tours to the main attractions in Cape Town and the awesome vineyards nearby. I can highly recommend Gap Lodge to everyone!!! You'll definitely see me again soon!!!

The host was pleasant and the room clean, the breakfast was good however, the TV was old & small with a lot of interference & only SABC @ e-tv channel (not good enough). Our room was facing the main road so it was noisy. No off street parking.

If I had to sum it up in one word "fantastic"! We were warmly welcomed by Le Roi and Linda and made to feel at home right away. The helpful and friendly yet unobtrusive approach they have is just lovely. The room was well decorated and a good size, with really comfy beds! The en-suite had a lovely large shower. The breakfasts were delicious and a good selection is available. Eating out on the balcony in the morning (weather permitting) is a real treat and a great way to start the day. I will be recommending Gap Lodge to any friends that go to Cape Town and the next time I am in Cape Town I will definitely be booking into Gap Lodge again! ... Thank you Le Roi and Linda once again, you helped make my holiday away with my Mom just that much more special!!

This guesthouse is great! Gap Lodge is centrally located with beautifully furnished rooms and impeccable service. The owners, Linda and Le Roi, are extremely helpful and friendly and they provided me with everything I needed while I was working in Cape Town, including driving directions, free WiFi and a delicious breakfast every morning. The overall atmosphere is great. Truly a home away from home. I highly recommend Gap Lodge. Can't wait to stay there again!

I already look forward to staying at Gap Lodge again. I felt very welcome and love the whole atmosphere. Love the deck outside. Kloofnek Road can be busy but with the aircon on there isn't much noise if you close the window.
