We cannot recommend this delightful residence highly enough. The staff are well trained and extremely helpful. It reminds me of how hotels used to be with freshly cooked breakfast served to your table and a good limited menu evening meal if you wish. It is in an excellent situation within a short distance to Constantia village and some great wineries...

Thanks so much for mentioning the distances, Constantia is often thought to be too far out, when in fact, it is more central to all Cape Town's tourist attractions. We look forward to your next visit. Wendy

We stayed here for our first night, and were made very welcome. Our room was very comfortable with all needs met. The gardens are delightful. Breakfast and dinner were excellent. We left some clothes behind and staff quickly let us know and kept them for our return. Only slight disappointment was lunch (which they don't really cater for) - cheese...

We spent 4 days here at the end of December and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left everything was superb. We had the family two bedroom cottage, which was so beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable, the website images do not show how great all the rooms are in my opinion. The two pools were a pleasure...

This lodge is rated #3 of "Bed and Breakfasts" in Constantia by Trip Advisor and I would not argue with that at all. My problem was that my travel agent recommended it as a "hotel" which it is not.( you have to order dinner in the morning,if you want it from a very restricted choice) and if you want anything...
