The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room we had was quiet small but cosy. The breakfast was good, the staff made an extra effort when something was missing. Overall it was a cosy hotel/lodge. A bit to walk to and from Waterfront and no good restaurants close to the hotel so a taxi was necessary. I would consider...

I have stayed at Head South Lodge many times. The location is great. The room sizes are excellent. It has everything one needs for an excellent stay in Cape Town. The staff are friendly and accommodating. It's very convenient.

Although we found our room and bathroom very small, it was extremely clean. The breakfast was really good too. In general it was a comfortable stay in an amazing location. Definitely recommended but choose...

Hi Yarisha. Thanks for the lovely review. You stayed in a standard room, hence the size comment. The luxury and deluxe rooms are very generous. We welcome you back anytime, and will make sure you enjoy a larger room. Kind regards Jeff

The room was clean and tidy, breakfast was excellent and the ladies who prepared this could not do enough for you, also location great - close to all amenities and not far from the centre of town. Ideal for everything we wanted to do.

We stayed 2 nights here, 3 nights at another lodge in Green Point. In hindsight, we should have stayed 5 nights here. The upstairs rooms have renovated bathrooms - nicer than on the website. Jeff was tremendously helpful in helping us plan our stay, devising several days' touring programs that worked out really well. An deal host. And the breakfast...

A friend and I came to Head South Lodge for a few days during our Cape Town holiday and boy it was easy. The room was small (but we were offered a larger room for more money and decided to spend that money elsewhere and kept the small room) but the amenities were great. Self service bar and snacks which...

I had booked two different rooms for 3 nights in total. Reconciled on check-in, and upgraded. Handled well by friendly staff. Good recommendation of nearby restaurants by staff. Great location--less than an hour of relaxed walking to downtown core, half of that to V&A, and a few minutes to the seashore and a long walkway. Room was very large, well-equipped.
