“Lovely”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

The accommodations and staff were outstanding. The owner, Jeff, is particularly helpful and kind going out of his way to get to know and help each guest. The breakfast was great in a pleasant atmosphere. The bed and shower were great. I would also recommend renting a car and driving yourself around as this was about R300 where you will spend the same on just a couple of cab rides. Enjoy!

Head South lodge was recommended to me by my friend Edwin for my honeymoon stay with my wife.
The location, near the waterfront, the beach, the stadium, hop on hop off buses everywhere - this place has the excellent location.

The staff - amazing! ! From the guy at the gate, to the owner Jeff, to the receptionists ( both lady Ramona and the man whose name I forgot) were awesome people.

The pricing was jus what I wanted. The rooms very nice....

The honesty bar was the first I have ever encountered. It was great staying here.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. I will be coming back soon.

I have stayed here 3 times now and will certainly be back. The owners are very welcoming and knowledgeable, they have recommended some fantastic bars and restaurants that helped us make the most of our stay. The rooms are lovely and clean and the downstairs area with its unique style and bar make it feel like home from home. The breakfast offers a delicious selection. The location is also perfect in green point and makes a perfect base for exploring the city. [if using a sat nav Be sure to use the address from the hotel website rather than from Google search as for some reason it will take you to the other side of town! ] Would highly recommend.

A great base for exploring Cape Town. Conveniently situated in the green point area not far from one of the Hop on Hop off bus stops! Comfortable bed and pillows. Art Deco decor in public areas which gives it a unique feel. Rooms arranged around a central atrium taking advantage of the natural light. Honesty bar so refreshments available at all hours. Great breakfast with a wide menu. Fresh fruit, yoghurt, cold meats and cheeses and hot bacon, eggs mushrooms. Staff friendly and helpful. Safe and secure. Would highly recommend.

As ex Capetonians on holiday from Australia we stayed here for 10 days in March with my husband and adult daughter. My husband and I had the room in the front No 4. What we loved about this room was the size, although on a pleasure visit it would be great for a business trip too. The traffic which does pass by was a non event for us. My daughter had one of the rooms at the back and was very happy and comfy in hers. The standout reason why we loved this place had to be the owner Jeff and his wonderful staff especially Ramona. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they were warm, helpful and only too happy to organise and suggest places of interest to us we might not know. They have a full time security person on the entrance which was great as they have a couple of spots out front for car parking and these are continually monitored. Coming home from a busy day relaxing having a drink, it felt as if you could have been lounging at home. They have an honour system which works really well and makes you feel for the time you are living there, this is your space too. A lovely breakfast everyday with enough choice to suit most people's taste. The lodge has been tastefully decorated in an Art Deco theme. It is very well situated near beach front, stadium, restaurants, transport and a short ride to the waterfront. Great accommodation at a very reasonable cost with excellent service.

Room Tip: We loved the room no 4 at the front very spacious

Having stayed at Head South Lodge on quite a few occasions now for both
business and pleasure, I only have good things to say.
All of the staff are particularly friendly and helpful from Jeff the owner
through to Ramona, Teddy, Caley, Annie, Philip and Lena (all of the names I
have learned so far). Every member of the team takes a real pride and
interest in looking after all of your needs. Reception are very happy to
organise taxis for you and will also make reservations for you at one of the
many incredible restaurants Cape Town has to offer.
The rooms are scrupulously clean, the breakfasts are fabulous and the
honesty bar such a nice touch. Our team all stayed on the top floor in
beautiful contemporary rooms in cool gray with fabulous walk-in showers.
The location of Head South in Green Point I think is ideally situated for
exploring all of the popular surrounding areas, nothing ever seems to be
more than 30 minutes away.
Enjoy Cape Town, it's an amazing city!

Room Tip: All rooms great but we always choose top floor.....

Good value for money. The owner and staff are GREAT! Ramona especially was so hopeful. Less than R50 taxi too waterfront and most tourist places. Right next to stadium and less than R100 taxis to table mountain. Rooms were great. Thank you for making life easier.:)
