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.

We had an excellent three-night stay at Liberty Lodge. Right from the time we booked, the owner Ruth was gracious and helpful in offering information and booking activities for us. Of special note is the Township tour she organized with our guide Thabang. This tour was a highlight of our trip and something that I think should be experienced by...

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.
