I am a little early with this review as this is our third night of four staying here.
From check in which was after hours we were welcomed by Barbara shown around the house & our rooms which were large & clean, as we had arrived late we were offered a later breakfast time and this kind of hospitality has been ongoing.
The breakfast had a good hot & cold variety with great service.
Thank you Barbara & staff for making this a great start to our Safari holiday.

Although I was just invited for a free breakfast there, I was most impressed by the friendliness of manager- and staff. I spend a good few hours there enjoying the inner courtyard and was impressed by their clean, up-to-scratch rooms. They are in walking distance of the Gardens Shopping Centre and center town is also not too far away. I would recommend them to especially self-drives!

After booking this stay I had emails from Barbara about our arrival long before we came. We had a late flight into Cape Town and wouldn't arrive until 10pm. Barbara arranged to be there to greet us and made us very welcome. She showed us how the gates worked and gave us a quick tour of the house before we all retired for bed. The room was very comfortable and clean. The air con very efficient. Breakfast was outside on the terrace and excellent. I had informed Barbara that my husband was coeliac and she had found some excellent gluten free for him. The breakfast was cooked to order and very good. Barbara was extremely helpful in helping us plan our days, advising us where to catch the bus and what to see. I would definitely go back. Thank you for a wonderful few days. I highly recommend Cactusberry Lodge.

From the moment we arrived Barbara and her team were so fantastic .
We did not arrive in Cape Town until after 6 pm but i had emailed Barabara the owner a couple of days before to let her estimate time of arrival.The house is so beautiful, large rooms , wooden floors .
We stayed in Room 6 all rooms are ensuit.
Breakfasts are amazing chooses include cereal, various cold meats, cheeses and fabulous choices of cooked breakfast from their menu range.
Anna looked after us whilst we stayed here, she helped with booking the cable car .Nothing was too much trouble .They provide a laundry service .Definitely a brilliant place to stop.

You can't go wrong with a stay at Cactusberry Lodge. It is centrally located in Cape Town with easy access to buses and to highways for driving. Since it's central, taxi fare home from the waterfront wasn't even very expensive. There are nice restaurants within easy walking distance. Barbara will take the time to go over your daily plans and map out a route for you. The whole place is beautifully decorated with art. Our room was spacious and there are lovely sitting areas outside on a patio and inside. Breakfast was great -- the only problem with it was trying not to gain weight. Next to "hospitality" in the dictionary there should be a picture of Cactusberry!
