Beautiful accommodations and great views from the room. Perfect for older guests and couples seeking a nice posh stay in Cape Town, really close to safe and trendy spots only one block away from the lodge. Gracious host and really accommodating staff.

We really enjoyed our stay at Liberty Lodge, and Ruth who operates the Lodge really goes out of her way to ensure you get the most of your trip in Cape Town. It is within walking distance to many restaurants and bars, and if you have your own car it is very easy to get to other parts of the... More

This was a great find in a safe and convenient area. Parking was on the street out front. We had a beautiful view of Table Mountain, and good restaurants are an easy 2-3 block walk. Our last morning we needed to leave early, so we were provided with a breakfast bag to take along. Very helpful hosts made this a... More

We stayed at the lodge for almost a week and loved the home-away-from-home feel. Places of interest are walking distance away and Ruth was extremely helpful. The breakfast is good, the room was decent and the staff were ever so friendly. We would recommend this lodge for any first timer to Cape Town, especially those who love a personal touch... More

Loved the location of this beautiful home....lots of restaurants and cafe's a block away. Ruth was a super host and the ladies in the kitchen made a fabulous breakfast each day. The rooms are clean and uncluttered and there is a nice sitting area on the main floor. If you are energetic you could walk to Table Mountain.

Spent 4 nights at Liberty Lodge and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Cape Town. Only a 5 minute walk to shops and restaurants. Ruth was a knowledge of information and would sit and chat and share this with her guests. Her staff Nita and Lisa made the most awesome breakfasts.

We had a great stay at Liberty Lodge, Ruth (the owner) made us most welcome and could not do enough for us. The Lodge is very comfortable, ideally located in a safe area, close to Kloof Street with all its cafes, restaurants and shops. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed and we lacked for nothing.

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.
