The unit is a two story apartment with two bedrooms. The ground floor contains a lovely living area with a small kitchenette and a bathroom. The swimming pool is located next to the living room with an outside dining table and a barbeque area.

If I came to Cape Town again, I will definitely try to reserve it.

51 on Forest Drive is well situated for quick access to the Two Oceans marathon during Easter weekend. Very neat accommodation and friendly, understanding staff (despite our delay at the airport). The breakfast on the Saturday after the race was great (and included in the price! :-)) I can truly recommend them to any fellow-runner. Thank you very much!

51 on Forest Drive Lodge is only a 10 minute drive from Cape Town international airport, this is an easy drive towards the city on the N2 without passing through any scary areas in the dark. The lodge consists of two accommodation buildings, one on each side of a moderately busy road, although we heard no traffic noise during our stay. All the staff were very welcoming and helpful, we were offered a generous buffet breakfast and also ate our evening meal in the restaurant there, the food was some of the best we tasted during our 3 week tour of SA. There is a very pretty garden with small pool and seating which we enjoyed.A good place to stay which offers value for money, a warm welcome, excellent food and the added benefit of its location for airport.

I love our room, the bath room the most, it was big and clean and featured with a beautiful bath tub. The free breakfast was very diverse and delicious. We also tried the $12 per person dinner, it tasted good and saved us time to go out finding restaurant.The staff are pretty nice and helpful. I am really glad that I chose this guest house, it offered high above average quality of service but cost much less than the average hotel price in the Cape Town area.
