Reviewed December 26, 2011

My fiance and I planned a leisure trip to Cape Town a month ago and our first stay was Liberty Lodge. We totally impressed by how convenient is the B&B to nearby restaurants, food markets and coffee house......

We stayed in a shared-balcony room and the view is just amazing~but we couldnt stay outside for long because the wind is pretty strong and cool. In the room, everything was kept tidy and basic amenities are provided.

Breakfast were very good...... My fiance doesn't eat egg but he likes their omelette very much!

Overall the stay was very pleasant, we will be back for sure.

This was a perfect place to stay. I stayed here at the end of a 8 day trip to cape town. its an easy 10 minute walk to downtown but in a nice residential neighborhood so there are always people walking about. Many restaurants nearby and the breakfast was very good. Room was comfortable, quiet and clean.

The Liberty Lodge is where we stayed during our first visit in Cape Town last week. My husband & I had an amazing time as if we were at home with Ruth, Lisa & Nita, & every morning at breakfast we met more interesting people. Ruth's recommendations of places to go, eat & things to do made it even more comfortable & delightful! We loved Cape Town & we loved Liberty Lodge. If you want a memorable & comfy vacation, then I'd advise you to head there!!! Thank you Ruth, Lisa & Nita... Joyce

The Liberty Lodge is one of the first places I stayed in South Africa over 12 years ago. It was part of the first impression I had of country and contributed to my desire to purchase property and move to SA permanently. I now own a farm and B&B in the Eastern Cape, but continue to stay at Liberty Lodge on my trips to Cape Town - both business and pleasure. The Lodge was under different ownership during my original stay and was excellent. Ruth's takeover and management has only made it better. Ruth is a wonderful host and she and the staff (Lisa and Niki) are extremely attentive and look to every detail. The rooms are very comfortable and well decorated. There's a buffet of breakfast choices and the girls cook up great egg selections. The Lodge is centrally located to my business meetings and local attractions and restaurants. She has also helped arrange tours for my family whilst they were visiting, and staying at the Lodge, from overseas. Several friends now also stay with Ruth. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: All rooms are good!

Was in Cape Town visiting my daughter (who found the B&B). What a wonderful choice. The Lodge is lovely and inviting, the room we stayed in (Rhodes) large and spacious with great views of the city and Table Mtn. Ruth could not be warmer and more helpful and Nita, the sweetest woman who makes an amazing breakfast! Location was perfect and I would highly recommend Liberty Lodge for business or pleasure. A winner!

Room Tip: I chose Rhodes, the largest room, but peeked in at all the rooms which while smaller, still lovely a...

The room we stayed in was lovely and really large, the service was good, and the price was very fair. The Lodge is a little off the beaten path so parking is easy, you can walk to restaurants and bars, and it is still quiet and peaceful at night. We had a wonderful stay at Liberty Lodge and Ruth was truly fantastic at providing advice on Cape Town. Ruth has wonderful restaurant recommendations and happily helped us with reservations and other suggestions for places to visit and see. Highly recommended.

The only word that accurately describes the wonderful experience I had at Ruth's B&B is: Fantastic! She is warm and welcoming, a fount of information for restaurants, sites and anything else one might need. Her charming house is comfortable, cosy, beautifully decorated and the bed was so comfy I had to drag myself out of it every day! Nita and Lisa (the brilliant staff) are amazing. Breakfast is perfect. Liberty Lodge is situated in a great area, plenty of restos and cafes nearby and it's very easy to get everywhere. It was also great value for money. I couldn't recommend this lovely place more highly, if you are coming to Cape Town you should definitely stay here!
