Smart but homely decor. Warm greetings and assistance from owner - Ruth. Rooms well appointed with comfortable beds. Extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Breakfasts prepared to personal liking - great omelettes by Lisa ! As a single woman who travels frequently I felt very safe and secure in the environment because of the access control.

My girlfriend and I stayed for 2 nights. The location is great. Table mountain cableway station is closeby. As well as a lot of nice restaurants, pubs, bars and shops. In walking distance. Camps bay and the beaches are only 5 minutes away by car. Yet it's quiet and safe. The bed is great. The breakfast superb. The art deco.......

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
