Location with quick access to the CBD, Newlands, Simon's Town and Constantia areas. Large rooms, adequate parking. Small but adequate kitchen area. People with mobility problems might have a problem with access though.

We spend about 5 night on Whittlers Lodge and we enjoyed every moment. The hosts were very friendly, and they gave us useful information and advice about the main touristic attractions. There was a parking spot for us and we loved the backyard garden. Many thanks to Barry and Sandra. Highly recommended!

It´s really enough to say that we´ll be back at Whittlers next time we´re in Hout bay. Great place, great garden and pool area and great service. Barry and Sandra made it home away from home. The situation in the hills are nice and it´s perfect as a base for driving around the peninsula.
