Stayed for one night and it was a great experience with amazing views! It's in Bo-Kaap so just be aware the mosque can be noisy but for us it was an excuse to watch the sunrise and go for an early hike up Signal Hill. We will definitely be back!

At 9:30 am when I was still asleep, they started to carpet clean right next to my head, across the wall, sounded like drilling. I asked them to do it later. But meantime they would still run around and vacuum clean, carry a bunch of equipment, slam doors, and shout out orders to other staff members. After another hour I...

Arrival at the lodge: Receptionist on the phone and not very friendly or welcoming, felt like she just wanted to get us checked in and over with. The room: Quite small, surrounding was some dilapidated apartment blocks but with nice view of the city and harbor. The bathroom plumbing setup was pathetic no other way to describe it. The shower...

Warm welcome by attentive staff after a late check-in. Parking a bit squeezed as the accommodation is on Signal Hill and doesn't afford the luxury of a spacious car park. The lodge is more vertical than horizontal, but every space has been optimally used. Bedrooms are a fair size, but there's a strange way of tuning on the water in...

The place falls short of a four star rating for sure. The road to get there is a mission, but after the effort the first thing that put me off was our welcome when we just reached.the receptionist was very sour and was busy on his phone asking us to wait. When we asked about a few of the processes...

I picked this place for both the incredible prices and the great ratings I saw. It was not quite what I expected. The view from the room that I hoped for was not to be. I also found the noise bounced around quite a bit and it kept me awake very early. I am sure there's something they can do...

Awesome accommodation , more than value for money. Breakfast is reasonably priced and offers a nice variety. Fantastic views over the city and harbour. Friendly helpful staff The access road is quite steep but well worth it

Clean, comfortable, renovated (a bit small) room with balcony and a highly recommended lodge in general. The only minus of the room was that the extra safety iron door at the window couldn't get locked and you could open it with anything. It is walking distance from city center if you use their "secret" door and it is located over...
