Makapa Lodge, Cape Town
Ian and Margaret were wonderful hosts. Our lodge was spacious and equipped with everything we would need. The bed was comfortable with a choice of pillows. Shower was powerful and perfect after a day of exploring. Breakfast was lovely, a variety of fruit, cereal on offer as well as a delicious cooked breakfast. Surrounding the main house was a beautiful garden, which my parents loves walking around, prior to breakfast. The owl we spotted in the garden was gorgeous! Easy to get around and see the main sights, great location. Thanks for the chats and advice every morning and for making us feel so welcome.

The location is convenient to the Fish Hoek/Simonstown side of Cape Town and whilst some way from the sea, is located next to a nature reserve with great views across to the sea. My room was a large apartment style with a separate lounge, bedroom and bathroom and with coffee/tea facilities and a microwave. There is free on-site parking, wifi and a desk to work at although the wifi dropped out a number of times and was frustratingly slow. All in all, a very pleasant stay and especially suitable if you want a quiet, hassle-free base for your trip. One small gripe - the bed pillows were uncomfortably hard (for me).
