Crabrook, BC
Reviewed 1 week ago

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.

This is my 5th year in a row at Head South Lodge and since day 1, five years ago there is not a single negative thing to say. It is without a doubt one of the best places I have stayed. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming; the staff members are ever so friendly and accommodating. One can't thank Jeff...

We have been coming to HSL during the Argus (Cape Town Cycle Race) weekend for many years. At first we booked only one room. Now we book FIVE rooms with our extended "Cycle family". What we love most at HSL is the hospitality of Jeff and his staff. We always feel welcome. Jeff has accepted my family's ways...sometimes noisy (music)...unfortunately...

Perfect location - walking distance to almost everything you want to see, Waterfront, Lion Head, Table Mountain, City Center, boardwalk, Clifton Beaches.

The location is in the Green Point neighborhood and within walking distance to the retail and restaurants of the Sea Point neighborhood.

Helpful friendly staff who organised a taxi to collect us at the airport after a delayed flight. Spotlessly clean rooms. Good breakfast provided. Location is good for Sea Point area and exploring the Waterfront.
