Air conditioning and hot tub were not yet operational. Otherwise perfect setting and helpful staff especially Carol Anne 👋

Superb experience
Booked two rooms for two nights. It was absolutely fantastic, and the team couldn't have been more friendly. The lodge is in a very convenient location, is beautifully appointed and I will definitely stay there on my return to Cape Town. Highly recommended .
Jason, za2 night business trip
Exceptional 10,0
Amazing stay
We stayed for 10nts and never wanted to leave! Wayne & D are brilliant nothing is too much for them. Any issues are dealt with promptly without hesitation. They’re turning the place into something amazing. It’s a clean bright modern place, well kept by the staff. Rooms are cleaned daily. It’s a peaceful area, nice & quiet all day. The honesty bar is a great idea I’d never heard of one before but it made us feel so relaxed and at home we settled in so easy as everything is so laidback. The prices of the food & drinks are very affordable, free still/sparkling/flavoured water available 24/7. My only criticisms are that they need a few more sunbeds at the bottom pool, a full length mirror in the bedroom and breakfast needs to be a bit more varied. We loved our stay and don’t want to stay in hotels anymore when you have places like this to stay instead!

This particular property was very nice and convenient to the parts of Cape Town we were wanting to visit. All the rooms were equipped with Amazon Echo devices, which was fun an interesting for a short stay. The rooms were unfortunately short on electrical outlets though, so finding a place to plug stuff in got a little annoying, and the safe code couldn't be changed (you had to use the code they gave you)... which didn't seem like a very secure way to go about things. We had no issues though! One thing to note, we booked a room with a hot tub, but you had to pay extra if you actually wanted to use it (about $30 a day USD), which seemed a bit silly. We didn't want to use it anyway because of the weather, but I thought it odd. Breakfast was very good and the staff were incredibly nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice concept hotel, can be improved
Great staff who were very helpful especially the manager. However as Cape Town is experiecing power cuts and the hotel has no power back up had to sit in the room with a torch light and after a long day got no hot water for a bath. Also while the room is supposed to operate using alexa voice controls, alexa did not work for the entire 1 day stayand we used the usual manual controls. Also on arriving in the evening after a long day of driving we learnt that dinner has to be pre-ordered in the morning and there is no provision to provide a meal with out pre ordering. We were not informed of this prior to arrival.There are restaurants nearby but after a long day with sleepy kids we did not want to step out in the powercut. So we had to make do wit fruits. The property is otherwise clean with a nice pool and garden at the back. The breakfast in the morning was quite nice and the staff were helpful and friendly.

Tarragona Lodge was great for the purpose we booked it for. We wanted something affordable, comfortable and clean and this is exactly what we got with great service too. They were also so kind as to book us a great taxi service with uber rates and we got swept away in style to Kitima at The Kronendal restaurant where we had a night to remember.
