A corner of pure England grafted on Cape Town, dressed with some exotic flavour. The house is located perfectly, mostly if you should like to test and taste the restaurants and bars of the Gardens area, but it is quite close also to the CBD. There is no garage, but you can feel absolutely confident and park your car in... More

Ruth at Liberty Lodge provided us with the perfect 'second honeymoon'.  Her stylish, Victorian guesthouse is perfectly situated within walking distance of lovely and interesting, assorted cares, bars and restaurants. Ruth is full of local knowledge and provides a homely but immaculate place to stay. Great breakfasts too. We'll definitely come back and thoroughly recommend this charming guesthouse and hostess.

What a lovely place - could not have asked for a warmer welcome. It's a cozy yet elegant, beautiful place. The breakfast was superb. Ruth, the host, could not have done more for me. The only downside was not having tea and coffee facilities in the room itself - I was reluctant to use the facilities on the landing when... More

We (two couples) spent four nights here and were very happy. The location, as everyone else has noted, is great - so close to Table Mountain and an easy, extremely safe walk to some fine restaurants, both casual and upmarket. Breakfasts were lovely, esp. in the pretty courtyard, weather permitting. Ruth was very helpful with bookings and advice, as were... More

We spent 5 wonderful days in Cape Town. This Lodge together and Ruth, its owner, as well as Liza and Nina (her assistants) had a big share of responsibility for it.

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
