A great base just beneath Signal Hill and a gentle, flat 30 minute stroll (or short Uber ride) to the Waterfront. 75 rand Uber to Table Mountain. Staff are excellent and our stay was very enjoyable. We had elected to rent a standard room and on reflection maybe...

Head Sout Lodge is a small guesthouse with good location just under the Signal hill and 5 min walk to 3 anchor bay. Rooms are quiet with good beds. However there is big variation in rooms. Some are nicer than others. Service is always most hospital, like wisiting friends. Breakfast is good including juice blender anf cappucino 😀

We spent nine nights here beginning on New Year's Eve. We had reserved an ocean view room, but we were given a room at the back of the hotel with a mountain view. However the hotel was able to move us after the first couple of nights. The room was good sized and very comfortable, with a wall of glass...

From when I booked until I left I found the staff friendly and helpful. The building is quaint and well kept and I loved the outdoor area (bar, pool, lounger etc) to entertain my friends when they visited. The concept of an honesty bar that seemed to work was fantastic. I always prefer smaller hotels to bigger ones and Head...
