Great place, comfortable rooms, good location (not in the very town center but still everything is in easy reach), nice breakfast buffet and the owner goes out of her way to help her guests and make them feel welcome. Definitely recommend!

The location was perfect in that I could walk to the Waterfront along the Seapoint Promenade, which was just five minutes from the hotel. The staff at the lodge were so kind to my friend and I. On our last day, we had an...

Excellent location, great rooms, excellent breakfast and bar, very clean very well furnished. The hotel is located just two blocks from the ocean, it is possible to walk (20 minutes) to the waterfront. Some of the rooms (I recommend 22) has wonderful sea view. The staff is friendly, but not to over-present, as in other guesthouses in South Africa, there...

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room we had was quiet small but cosy. The breakfast was good, the staff made an extra effort when something was missing. Overall it was a cosy hotel/lodge. A bit to walk to and from Waterfront and no good restaurants close to the hotel so a taxi was necessary. I would consider...

We had a great one night stay at Head South Lodge. The staff were super friendly and the feel of the place is relaxed and fresh. Although we found our room and bathroom very small, it was extremely clean. The breakfast was really good too. In general it was a comfortable stay in an amazing location. Definitely recommended but choose...

Hi Yarisha. Thanks for the lovely review. You stayed in a standard room, hence the size comment. The luxury and deluxe rooms are very generous. We welcome you back anytime, and will make sure you enjoy a larger room. Kind regards Jeff

The room was clean and tidy, breakfast was excellent and the ladies who prepared this could not do enough for you, also location great - close to all amenities and not far from the centre of town. Ideal for everything we wanted to do.

We stayed 2 nights here, 3 nights at another lodge in Green Point. In hindsight, we should have stayed 5 nights here. The upstairs rooms have renovated bathrooms - nicer than on the website.
