This was my first time staying in a boutique hotel or B&B, and this Lodge was perfect! The location is in the Green Point neighborhood and within walking distance to the retail and restaurants of the Sea Point neighborhood. The staff were absolutely amazing, welcoming,...More

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.

Thanks for this lovely review. This year we are going to be dealing with certain rooms that we feel are sound sensitive. I hope you return to try them out. Kind regards Jeff

Hi Jeff We are staying with you for 5 nights late September..our very first trip to South Africa. As you are probably aware "tipping" for Australians is not a natural phenomenon, in fact some of us are a little reluctant to participate in the process. As tipping does not generally occur in Australia I am always confused when travelling overseas as the custom appears to fluctuate dramatically from continent to continent so I need to enlist your assistance so that this confused Australian does not offend individuals by under tipping nor distort the local economy by over tipping. Is a tipping surcharge automatically appended to service delivery charges..some countries just add 10% to all bills as "service charge"..and if this happens additional tipping is optional for exceptional service only... Could you please advise if tipping is REQUIRED at all and if so the MINIMUM tipping expectations for the following service delivery. ? Taxi Restaurant Porterage Bar Housekeeping Tour guides Tour drivers Any other service delivery tipping expectations. Thanking you in advance for your assistance with this challenge... Kind regards Trevor and Liz

Gosh, I didn't even see this question until now. The answer is yes, it is safe, as you would have found out if you did in fact park there.
