“We'll be back”
Reviewed May 14, 2011

It wasn't our first time at Loloho and it won't be our last time. The owners gave us a very warm welcome back. Rooms are not really supersized but big enough for travellers' needs, absolutely neat and cleand and worth the price. Each one has a fridge, a flat TV and DVD. Loloho is situated in Sea Point, right between Main Road and High Level Rd. 5 mins to Waterfront, 10 mins to city centre by car. Taxi to Cape Town centre didn't cost much more than 50-60 ZAR.

Stayed here in March, my first time at Loloho but a return visit for my boyfriend. We spent 4 nights and were more than happy. Location is good, out of the main hustle and bustle (and costliness) of V&A but easy to get to. We were very lucky in that the other guests staying did not use the pool while we were there so we got this to ourselves which meant we could sunbathe in peace - another reason why we chose not to stay in hotels. Breakfast is fine. Only slight niggle is that the overhead fan is a bit noisy when trying to sleep in the heat - but I am a light sleeper. Would definately recommend and stay again.

We felt at home at the Loloho Lodge. To eat from the rich breakfast Buffet in the garden within wonderful flowers is a relaxing start into the day. The owners take much care to the garden. The rooms were always very clean and meet the expectation of a four Star Lodge. The owners, Frank and Simon, are wonderful host and helpful in planning excursions. The location of the Lodge is within a few minutes walking from the Atlantic Ocean. From there is a paved beachfront promenade to the Waterfront. We can recommend the Lodge to all those who like a quiet and a nice familiar place.
We stayed there for 4 1/2 weeks and have enjoyed every day of it.

My husband and I stayed at Loloho Lodge for 9 days in March 2011. We were on vacation in Cape Town and it had been recommended to us by friends who stayed there in October 2010. We could not have made a better decision! Frank and Simon added so much to our trip - giving us excellent tips about places to see and directions around the city. They told us great places to eat close to the guest house, which definitely helped. We would not have had such a great trip in Cape Town without their recommendations. Loloho Lodge is clean, safe, and has such a friendly atmoshpere. We felt like we had known Frank & Simon for years even though we just met them. I would definitely recommend Loloho Lodge to anyone that's traveling in Cape Town and looking for a nice, affordable place to stay.

Very nice place in a safe area with a personal touch, close to many restaurants, shops and to the Atlantic ocean. 7 very clean rooms, beautiful garden with a lovely swimming pool. Extensive breakfast served by the very helpful owners Frank and Simon who also give a lot of information about sightseeing, restaurant tips and so on. They also do airport pickups and dropoffs, ideal for first-time travellers to South Africa. The rooms are excellent value with fridge, coffeemaker, safe, free internet, walk-in shower and so on. Highly recommended!

this was our second stay at loloho lodge having stayed 2 years ago and as before we were made to feel very welcome by the owners, and the hotel was better than we had remembered
it is exceptionally clean which is a big must for us after a few bad experiences on our travels and the off street parking is a big plus
the pool and breakfasts were very good, and the owners were very helpful in arranging trips and our onward travel
the location is great for the markets and stadium
the only thing some people might like is a communal room, but really who wants to be stuck in doors when you are in Cape Town,

The owners are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean. The breakfast is great. Also the lodge is on a very good location and you can do a lot on foot. I have been there already for 3 times and I will be back! You get a great value for your money.
It is just great to be there.
