Guest Comments

Very lovely accomodation, perfect location in Cape Town, absolutely friendly service and everything spotless. Can be highly recommended for a stay in the Mother City.

Location is great, everything in the room is thought through well. I will definitely stay here again.

However, I feel the breakfast menu is a bit neglected as there were no protein to choose from except eggs. There was no one in this area to welcome me or explain the process in the breakfast area. Fresh milk in the room would have been a great add too.


It was awesome staying at De waterkant. I enjoyed every moment due to hospitality and high level professionalism of the team.

Very friendly and accommodating. Great care shown.

I enjoyed my stay at De Waterkant Lodge. What I liked most was the service, thank you for the excellent service
