There's even a fridge undr...

Booked without knowing and had a great time there. Rooms were great and the rooftop patio was fantastic. Spent a number of evenings there after dinner looking over Cape Town at night. Breakfasts were great and set us up for the day. The location is excellent and close to everywhere. Ruth was a source of great information.

We spent four nights at the Liberty Lodge and by the end I was pretty much ready to just move in. The Lodge itself is beautiful - a 19th century house with lovely, graceful details. We stayed in the Kipling room on the first floor, and it was elegant, spacious, and comfortable with a lovely bathroom. The breakfast each morning...

This hotel has a great location and the rooms are beautiful. There was lots of room to move around and breakfast in the garden chatting to Ruth the owner was lovely. Ruth was very helpful, she even gave us a 'packed breakfast' when we got up early to go walking. We very much enjoyed our stay here. A great start...
