I rate this lodge highly. It is tucked into the hills above Hout Bay among the most beautiful surroundings. What impressed me most was its presentation as a clean, well run family business whose owners take a personal interest in ensuring guests receive the high level and quality of attention they expect. They have a bar run on an honesty... More

The lodge is clean, spacious, secure and welcoming: the breakfasts are great and there is an honesty bar. We had an excellent stay in a good sized, comfortable room with tea making facilities ...... but felt that the absence of a room fridge denied us from giving the lodge the very top marks.

A home away from home. Excellent service by owners. Beautiful comfortable rooms. Parking on site. Just big enough to be a personal experience with a homely feel. Delicious breakfasts. Close to Hout Bay, but away from the noise. My favourite lodge. Left it too late to book in for December :-(

Excellent quality of service, rooms and breakfast. Personal touch of a family business yet large enough to be a place to meet fellow travellers and not feel like you are in someone's private home. Great location if you want to explore Greater Cape Town. Excellent for families. Highly recommendable!
