Had a 0ne-night stay at Tarragona Lodge, breakfast included. The room was comfortable, although I now expect to have a mini-fridge in the room and there wasn't one, just coffee & tea making facilities. Luckily the weather wasn't very hot as the room didn't have aircon, just a ceiling fan. I can imagine it would be very hot otherwise. Beautiful huge HD TV, but only had Netflix. We couldn't watch any terrestrial channels (or SuperSport, as the Proteas were playing that weekend). The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good. Background music in the Dining Room would have been great. I'm surprised that it is a 4-Star establishment though.

We started our visit to South Africa with 3 nights at the Tarragona Lodge. A warm and friendly welcome from the manager Carol and the owner Frieda settled us in to our large comfortable room overlooking the pool and gardens. The Lodge is surrounded by trees and is in a quiet and very peaceful location with interesting local decorations in the communal lounge area. The breakfasts were excellent with a large choice of fruits, yoghurt, cereal, fresh bread and rolls from the bakery and of course a cooked option. The honesty bar was very welcome after a day out sightseeing and all the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The wifi was also very good, a facility not often found in South African hotels. Thank you for a delightful stay.

This was our third stay at Tarragona Lodge and it was even better than the last two great times. Owners Rob and Frieda along with manager Carol Ann are putting their own mark on the hotel. We returned because we love the peace and friendliness of the hotel together with easy access into Cape Town especially if you catch the Red "hop and off" tourist bus (nearest stop about a 30 min walk) . It is also only an easy drive from Capetown airport, The breakfasts were very good and we appreciated the option of requesting a cheese board for the evening. We hope to return for a fourth stay.

This place is wonderful and full with love. It makes you fall on one of the couches and forget your busy schedule. Just relax and enjoy. I loved everything about it. And it looks even better in reality than on photos. The only problem - you cannot wander out of the gates. Only drive.

We’ve just returned from an amazing, trip of a lifetime in Southern Africa. We spent the last week at Tarragona Lodge. We were made to feel like part of the family from the moment we arrived, tired and hungry. Frieda and Rob and of course, Carol-Ann were kind, helpful and welcoming. The rooms were large and beautiful and clean. Frieda even conjured up a surprise 60th birthday celebration for my husband on our last day there. I highly recommend choosing Tarragona Lodge if you are in the Cape Town area!

It is in a beautiful and quiet location, it's conveniently located, it was clean, it felt like home, but most of all, the staff were absolutely lovely. They were friendly and so helpful and I can't recommend this place enough.

Great establishment..Carol-Ann (Manager) ensured our stay was superb....well equipped large rooms...excellent breakfast an absolute bargain..staff and owners very friendly.....Hout Bay rocks! We will return~

I stayed over at Tarragona Lodge in May '17 & it was a great experience! The staff/owner were so endearing & truly made me feel very much at home! They go out of their way to make your feel welcome & the location/food were excellent! Old world charm with upmarket furnishings! One of the best Guest Houses in Hout Bay!!

Tarragona offers a tranquil, relaxing environment. The rooms are spacious and offer a private balcony. The staff are lovely. They are friendly and efficient. Secure parking was a bonus and the breakfast is good.

My boyfriend and I went there for a night out of town and it was SUPER relaxing. The staff was really friendly and extremely helpful. The room we had was on the second floor overlooking Hout Bay - what a beautiful view! I would definitely go back again for some "us" time.
