Much better options available at this price. Finishes are old and worn, decor is hideous and the hotel passages smell funny. The only things it has going for it are perfect location and air conditioning. The restaurant downstairs is an overpriced travesty. The African theme of the hotel is outdated. The hotel itself is very old fashioned. The shower sits...

Security, porter and reception extremely friendly, courteous and helpful when we checked in. This was followed up with the breakfast staff - always willing to assist to our needs. The hotel was clean and spotless. Both check in and leaving was handled efficiently. Also please to receive complimentary wifi voucher. Hotel was a bit pricy but understandable as I booked...

I stayed here for business for my first (and hopefully last) time. To begin with, several members of my group weren't picked up from the airport even though they had arranged for, and paid for, the hotel to pick them up. The hotel refused (and was quite rude) to give a refund even though it was clearly the fault of...

We opted to stay for only a night with my wife after realizing it wasn't really worth it. It looks upmarket and expensive but everything has a cheap feel to it. Mind you due to booking a double room late we were upgraded to a suite. However the lack of quality was still apparent. The shower was plastic, pillows were...

The Cape Town Lodge doesn't look much as a building, but inside it is wonderful and the service is fantastic and friendly. The room we had was large and clean and modern, very comfortable. The restaurant is excellent with a great menu and fantastic service. We had new Year's eve here and they went to a lot of trouble to...

I was upgrade to the loft with spectacular views of the Table mountain. Loft is equipped with a kitchen, there are free coffee and welcome aperitif. Rich and diverse breakfast. Hotel restaurant offers the most delicious snails that I've tried. Internet is paid.

I had a great experience at Cape Town Lodge. I was upgraded to one of their lofts and it was spectacular. The room was incredible, very clean, and amazing views. The staff was helpful in booking tours and car service. The location is great and not far from many of the local attractions.

A hidden gem in Cape Town. Not far from Long Street. The rooms are wonderfully decorated and are very comfortable. The bar fridge is stocked up for your convenience but whatever you decide to nibble on is charged to your room. There is room service and a buffet and restaurant. Great Stay! Definitely worth it.

Better than average for a 'city' hotel. Clean, good sized rooms, comfortable beds (pillows could be a bit 'softer'), substantial breakfast with plenty of choice. The Cape Town Lodge is good value for it's central location. The only let down is the cost of accessing the hotel WiFi. Only 'sold' in 500 MGB which may be required for a 'very...
