From the get-go, Romney Lodge was a spectacular sight. Located in Green Point, it is a fair 15-minute walk from V&A Waterfront, which was actually a relief because the area was very quiet with a breathtaking view of the sea and surrounding areas, and there was a lot to see en route to V&A.
Phillip was extremely helpful and swift to reply to our messages. He even arranged our airport transfers. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted by Phillip and his cute dogs. Simon helped us settle in our suite, and the wonderful Mama Eunice served us coffee and tea in a luxurious set-up tray on a coffee table in our suite.
The pictures online don't do Romney Lodge any justice --- the detail and overall feel was just incredible. Philip really took time and effort to make the lodge such a sight to behold. We almost didn't want to go out! Each morning we looked forward to breakfast because there was quite a lot to choose from, even though the selections were the same each day. We requested Mama Eunice to prepare the eggs in different ways for each day and she gladly obliged. Coffee and tea were free flowing, and you could tell Phillip and the staff went the extra mile to make guests forget they were actually paying for the accommodation. We got home one night and Philip hosted a barbecue by the pool for the guests. The pool area looked marvelous, both at night and at day.
Romney Lodge was so much more than accommodation during the trip; it was a destination in itself! I am so glad we chanced upon this place at Trip Advisor. Staying at Romney Lodge was truly the best decision we made for this trip, second only to choosing to visit Cape Town itself.
