We love it here! The rooms are lovely and comfortable, there is a beautiful large living room decorated traditional African style and a TV with lots of DVDs you can watch. The tranquil courtyard (which our twin room opened onto) is gorgeous with 2 picnic tables you can eat at shaded by large trees and surrounded by a variety of plants and flowers. The kitchen is homely and very clean with excellent coffee and cereal, toast and spreads like peanut butter and jam available for breakfast. We stayed on Christmas day and they put out mince pies and berry muffins with the breakfast! Lovely! Lots of herbs and spices in the kitchen too for your cooking. There is free wifi available with fast internet and a computer if you don't have a laptop. Lots of reading material too (books or magazines or brochures). Chess and Jenga as well. Upstairs there is a FANTASTIC view of Table Mountain from the balcony which you can admire either in the hammock or eating your meals at the picnic table. It is breath-taking. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, and Stephen gave us a map and advice on where we can go in the city (he recommended the City Sightseeing bus tour, which we took and now highly recommend to others as well!). The lodge is situated next to the lively Long Street full of bars restaurants and shops, and there are food shops about a minute's walk away. We wish we were staying longer, but we will definitely be back!
