I stayed in this lovely bed and breakfast for four nights in April. The lodge is exactly as depicted in the pictures. Ruth was very prompt and professional in responding to all questions both before and during my stay. The location is perfect-----safe and convenient and removed from some of the less desirable aspects of the city. The breakfast was...

My mom and I stayed for one week in the lodge, and we really enjoyed it. The room was clean and the whole lodge was nicely decorated. Breakfast was freshly done every morning, and the terrace featured a great view of the Table Mountain. A really nice area: street was quiet at night, quite a few incredibly nice breakfast cafes...

This really is a wonderful B&B. We first stayed here in 2009 and were so impressed that when we recently had the chance to come back to Cape Town it was the obvious choice - and it certainly did not disappoint.

Stayed 4 nights and very much enjoyed it. High quality accommodation but with a cosy personal touch. Good location for easy access to Table mountain and main routes into the city. Walking distance to good bars and restaurants on Long street in good safety.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Over the years, this classic Cape Town bed & breakfast has earned an enviable reputation for relaxed and genuine hospitality. Originally a Victorian gentleman's house, Liberty Lodge became a fabric emporium and even a bordello in the 1940s! Today, it combines a skillful mix of Victorian, Art Deco and contemporary decor, with some stunning feature pieces. Perfectly situated to make the most of your Cape Town holiday or business trip, Liberty Lodge sits on the lower slopes between Table Mountain cable car station and Cape Town CBD. Restaurants and cafes abound in trendy Tamboerskloof and tourist sights are in close proximity. The four uniquely decorated rooms are equipped with air-conditioning and heaters, an electronic wall safe, hairdryer, a range of toiletries and most importantly comfortable beds! Complimentary wi-fi and safe on street parking is available. A hearty hot and cold breakfast is served every morning to set you up for the day either inside or outside in the charming ground-floor greenery courtyard. This homely Tamboerskloof Bed and Breakfast provides your respite from a busy day and is run by owner, Ruth Parsons, who extends a warm, personal welcome. Liberty Lodge appeals to young and old, singles and couples, on holiday or working, all of whom know that convivial surroundings and a comfortable bed waits.No Children under 12 allowed!! ... more   less
