This really is a wonderful B&B. We first stayed here in 2009 and were so impressed that when we recently had the chance to come back to Cape Town it was the obvious choice - and it certainly did not disappoint. Ruth really makes you feel welcome and could not be more helpful. Incidentally, once you have stayed you will...

Stayed 4 nights and very much enjoyed it. High quality accommodation but with a cosy personal touch. Good location for easy access to Table mountain and main routes into the city. Walking distance to good bars and restaurants on Long street in good safety.

Hi Adrian Many thanks for your review. I do try and make sure that the Lodge has a relaxed, and personal feel - a contrast to impersonal hotels. I am glad you were happy with the location - close to the major sights, and safe walking distance to restaurants and bars. My best wishes to you both Ruth

A week before Christmas we stayed at the Liberty Lodge for three days. We just arrived at South Africa for four weeks. Owner Ruth made us feel very welcome and helped us planning our Capetown days and further trip. A really nice Guesthouse in a pleasant part of Capetown close to Kloofstreet, with nice restaurants.

Perfectly situated to make the most of your Cape Town holiday or business trip, Liberty Lodge sits on the lower slopes between Table Mountain cable car station and Cape Town CBD. Restaurants and cafes abound in trendy Tamboerskloof and tourist sights are in close proximity. The four uniquely decorated rooms are equipped with air-conditioning and heaters, an electronic wall safe, hairdryer, a range of toiletries and most importantly comfortable beds! Complimentary wi-fi and safe on street parking is available. A hearty hot and cold breakfast is served every morning to set you up for the day either inside or outside in the charming ground-floor greenery courtyard. This homely Tamboerskloof Bed and Breakfast provides your respite from a busy day and is run by owner, Ruth Parsons, who extends a warm, personal welcome. Liberty Lodge appeals to young and old, singles and couples, on holiday or working, all of whom know that convivial surroundings and a comfortable bed waits.No Children under 12 allowed!! ... more   less
