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...

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...

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...

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.

At the end of our South African holiday we stayed for three nights at the Romney Lodge in Capetown which have been the nicest days of our trip. The guesthouse is ideally located: in a quiet spot in Green Point, but still very close to the Waterfront and the Beach Road. Philip was always available to give us useful tips...

Our South African agent, who lives in Port Elizabeth, strongly urged us to try The Romney Lodge in Capetown. We took his advice for a three night stay, and I have to say he picked a winner. Quiet and luxurious rooms, a cozy ambience in the dining area and lounge, and the marvelous host Mishka made this our favourite mid-level...

We visited Cape Town in June 2011 and were lucky to stumble upon Romney Lodge. Done in colonial style with African touches, the B&B is in great and unintrusive taste. There are interesting corners such as the wall in one loo covered in yellowing newspapers from the early 20th century. The place is spotlessly clean and run like a tight...

We stayed at Romney Lodge this Christmas and loved it. The atmosphere is great and the staff amazing: Philip will help you with everything, Simon will sneak around making your day perfect, and Eunice is just out of this world. Her cheerful laughter will make you smile every morning and we miss her already. If you want a cozy, relaxing,...

Having seen this small B&B on a previous visit to Cape Town I was looking forward to spending 5 days at this delightful B&B. I was not disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were looked after by Philip and Eunice in a very friendly but very professional manner. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble. The B&B is at...
