This guesthouse is within a short walking distance of really good Cape Town restaurants (Kloof Street). The only slight negative, as far as I am concerned, is that your car is...

Thanks for your kind hospitality during my stay in Cape Town. All I needed was on hand, including a good breakfast that happened in a rush to accommodate my early meetings. A Map will be a great help.

We are currently back the third time within two months. We don't even look around anymore for other accommodation. The following words describe them,"clean, quaint, great beds nice breakfasts and friendly hosts." From here we have easy access to lots of fun restaurants and shops. We love it!

I stayed at GAP Lodge for two nights on business in Cape Town. The Lodge is beautiful, with stunning rooms and a very unique shaped designed house from the outside. The rooms are very clean and modern and have all the modern amenities you would expect from an upmarket guest house. The Loge is centrally located in the Gardens area...

I stayed at Gap Lodge in September 2014 for a week for work. The lodge is clean and comfortable and had all the amenities that I required for my stay.

Very friendly and helpful host, Linda and Roy. The officer Dominic is very lovely and patient. If it is a trip with friends it is a must choice. Room decoration is wonderful and even though it is small it is very cozy.
