The room was really lovely, very comfy bed. I like that there are 2 curtain option. We chose to use the darker curtains and take advantage of a lie in. The breakfast was delicious . We arrived late at night and the on sight manager was very welcoming.

As visiting family in Cape Town we decided to take an hotel for the last two days of our stay in green point. The hotel is quite good furnished. We had a room on the ground floor which was looking old and had windows toward the corridor so it was quite loud. Our parents were upgraded to room upstairs, which...

Thanks for taking the time to post this review. We have recently renovated the downstairs rooms, so hopefully you will feel better about your next stay there, although an upgrade should be offered.

What a find!!!! ......... We have just had the privilege of staying at Head South Lodge for just over a week and all I can say is that it was just great. The room was comfy, clean and spacious. The staff were friendly and efficient and made us feel very welcome and safe. Brekkie was more than satisfying as well...

Deluxe room on top floor very spacious. Within easy walking distance of V & A waterfront and only charged 60R taxi from waterfront on return trip late @ night. Good breakfast. Couldn't fault it and would recommend particularly as much cheaper and quieter than waterfront or city and these attractions are within easy reach.

After being on Long Street in the party zone the Head South Lodge was an oasis! Jeff, the owner, and the rest of the staff were amazing. I would return to the lodge and would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Capetown. The daily breakfast was excellent. The rooms are restful and super clean. We could walk to the boardwalk...

We only did an overnight stay, but it was very nice. The location fabulous. Rooms clean comfortable with nice linen decent bed. Personally we had no issues with "noisy" neighbours as some travellers mentioned. The staff friendly. Great value. And absolutely AMAZING breakfast spread for a small place. Dining area a little cramped but an excellent choice for accommodation in...

Thanks for this review. We are delighted you mentioned the breakfast as we do get reviews that say we repeat our breakfasts. If they work for most then we are happy to maintain the spread, but we also feel that we cater for most tastes. Hope to see you soon again.

The Lodge is situated at Main Road. It is in walking distance to restaurants and supermarket. They have a small pool. One should choose rooms upstairs. Unfortunately we had one on the ground floor. Size and equipment was fine but only one small window to a littered place and one big window to the corridor where everyone is walking by....

Thanks for posting this review. Yes, we do host very many photo teams, but very rarely have them using the hotel as a location. We tend to put our guests before the on-site photo shoots. We have renovated two of the downstairs rooms, but yes they are not as great as the upstairs rooms.

My fiancée and I spent a wonderful 5 nights at HSL. Our room was enormous and nicely decorated: the cleaning staff kept it immaculate throughout. Wonderful bar for sundowners where we met Jeff, the owner, who gave us some valued tips on good places to eat (all excellent) plus suggestions for our trip after we left Cape Town. All the...

The stay was extremely pleasant. After two days there I was already beginning to feel like a permanent residence @ home away from home. Staff is friendly, accommodation is amazing, over pleasant service.
