At VIP Cape lodge, there are so many facets. Let me try to encompass all. I have lived at the lodge over and over again, and over the years the establishment has changed, with constant upgrades. The owners really strive to cater for the guest's needs at all times. In a perfect setting, the lodge is surrounded by mountains, trees...

The website flatters the establihment. Tha garden is used to dump the dog faeces ( outside the rooms.) The backpackers in the room above were noisy most of the night and there is minimal soundproofing between up and downstairs rooms.the shower.door does.not close? The "pool"was also grubby. I did inform the staff on the morning I left.

We can only comment that it would have been better if each unit had its own satellite remote control. Other than that the unit had everything we needed, the host was lovely, the dogs also!! and the location perfect.

Hi We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Sadly, in order to give each unit their own DSTV, we would need to increase our prices and we prefer not to. We look forward to hosting you again. Regards Parsh

An amazing stay. The location is amazing and the dogs make it feel safe and homely. Loved it! It is so close to Kloof street - one of Cape Town's most charming streets and just down the way from Long street - the other street charm of the Mother City.

“The downstairs rooms 1 - 4 are quieter and a better option than room 6. Room 5 may share the kitchen with room 6 if catering required (check ahead) and has an absolutely amazing bathroom. The bathrooms usually come with shower gel and hand cream.”
