Acorn lodge feels like home away from home. The lodge is situated very close to the University of Cape Town. The rooms are serviced everyday. Furthermore, June is a pleasant, helpful and very caring host. To top it off, her breakfasts are very delicious! A must for travelers visiting the Cape.

Owner is very "hands-on", promptly preparing breakfast herself. We stayed in the smallest room, which we found quite adequate for the 2 of us. Spacious lounge area, and kitchen available for guests to make themselves sandwiches etc.

Having the lodge to ourselves offered great flexibility; we could come and go as... More
