Perfectly situated to make the most of your Cape Town holiday or business trip, Liberty Lodge sits on the lower slopes between Table Mountain cable car station and Cape Town CBD. Restaurants and cafes abound in trendy Tamboerskloof and tourist sights are in close proximity. The four uniquely decorated rooms are equipped with air-conditioning and heaters, an electronic wall safe, hairdryer, a range of toiletries and most importantly comfortable beds! Complimentary wi-fi and safe on street parking is available. A hearty hot and cold breakfast is served every morning to set you up for the day either inside or outside in the charming ground-floor greenery courtyard. This homely Tamboerskloof Bed and Breakfast provides your respite from a busy day and is run by owner, Ruth Parsons, who extends a warm, personal welcome. Liberty Lodge appeals to young and old, singles and couples, on holiday or working, all of whom know that convivial surroundings and a comfortable bed waits.No Children under 12 allowed!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Liberty Lodge earlier this year. A small guest house, it is situated just off Kloof Street, so plenty of bars and restaurants are within easy (and safe) walking distance. We stayed in a terrace room, which had AMAZING views of table mountain. As others have said, it really is Ruth's natural charm and hospitality that makes a stay here so enjoyable - definitely worth a look if you are looking for somewhere low key and affordable to stay in Cape Town!

We had a wonderful stay at Liberty Lodge! Ruth greets every guest like family and works so hard to make sure you enjoy every moment of your stay in Cape Town. Lisa and Tandy took wonderful care of us and provided a delicious breakfast each day - I miss the eggs and coffee! The Lodge is in a great location - short walk to great restaurants and shopping on Kloof Street, all very affordable as well. Rooms were spacious, clean and quiet. I really enjoyed the group breakfast outside each morning and getting to know our fellow travelers. Highly recommend Liberty Lodge for your Cape Town travels!

We had a great stay at Liberty Lodge ! We enjoyed the big room with a view on the mountains, where you could see the sun rise if you woke up early enough. No noise from the streets at all. The bed is a cloud !! So so confortable and the bathroom amenities were great. The lodge is ideally located near busy streets - Ruth, our host, was very kind and had great tips on how to get around and what to do in the Cape. We also enjoyed the delicious breakfast made by the team. Overall a great stay! Thanks, Elisabeth

I stayed in the largest room and it really was a home from home. Liberty Lodge oozes class with stylish decor and a relaxed ambience. Breakfast was a feast accompanied with friendly chat from Ruth, the hotel owner and other guests. Definitely recommended!

What a fantastic location. The rooms were really clean, great breakfast, and a lovely communal lounge area downstairs. I proposed to my girlfriend on this trip and Ruth even left us a bottle of champagne!
