We had a wonderful stay here in Christmas 2011. Very nice guesthouse, friendly host - not to forget Mama Eunice and Simon who took good care of us. Take a look at my pictures here:

Our family, parents and two grown up children stayed one week at the lodge. The reservation was made by a travel agent in Finland specialized for South African travels. We got along perfectly, the choice could not have been better! Good location, stylish and cozy interior but above all hospitality of the host and his crew was something we rarely have experienced during our travels.

Our stayed with Phillip and Mama Eunice for 5 nights was excellent, it included New Years Eve on which Phillip graciously allowed us to throw a braai (barbecue) on the terrace for some family guests, this was a lifesaver as it gave us a chance to relax in the knowledge that our child was asleep and safe nearby. As a family with a young daughters (8 months old) we felt comfortable to share our child with the staff and to make ourselves at home. Our room was large and comfortable, well apointed with elegant decor and the large bathroom was a lifesaver as anyone travelling with a baby can tell you. we will no douubt be back many times.

Room Tip: The best room is in the back of the Lodge as it has the largest Bathroom :)

Fab guesthouse, quiet location, 15 min walk to V&A waterfront. Beautifully decorated house, lovely rooms and most comfortable bed! Phillip, Mama Eunice and Simon great hosts. Phillip was very helpful and arranged tours for us and even came with us for lunch on our last day. Would stay there again most definitely.

We stayed with Phillip and Mama Eunice for 5 nights including Christmas Day, on which Phillip threw a braai (barbecue) on the terrace for all guests. I still dream about his steam grilled chicken... "We" are 6 grown-ups, a family with two daughters (18 and 22) and another couple, and we used 3 rooms. The rooms are large, very comfortable with excellent shower and bathroom facilities. The lodge is very cozy, and the staff is very helpful. I hope to come back soon!

Room Tip: All rooms are equally good.

Romney Lodge was just the perfect place to unwind after three weeks working a conference. Philip was the perfect host. Tours were arranged and transportation available quickly. Location very nice, near enough but not too close to everything. Easy walk to the waterfront. Eunice is a dream and took very good care of breakfast and room. I would absolutely go back and recommend to all my friends.

Phillip was incredibly welcoming and we were very comfortable for the final 2 days of our holiday. The location on green point within walking distance of the V&A waterfront is fab.
