Tarragona Lodge

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

This is a lovely hotel in a great location with large rooms within a very homely environment. There is a large lounge, breakfast room and gardens with a small pool. The service was friendly and efficient and they provided a very good selection at breakfast.

We've been with our family of 4 and took two rooms. Other families of 4 squeezed in the family room altogether but we prefer the extra space. Only minor inconvenience is there aren't connecting rooms but for a summer holiday it is not really needed. We stayed almost two weeks and we had a great time. The manager Carol Ann could not do enough for us to make us feel welcome and looked after. The owners Lilien and Derek are also very helpful and often present to look after the premises and the guests. We had excellent breakfasts very nice and relaxing times by the double pool in the garden. Nice drinks in the bar (which is nicely operated on an honesty system which no one seems to abuse). In a sentence we would very strongly recommend this to anyone who wants to stay close to Cape Town but not in the center of town. Hout Bay is a perfect getaway and scenic location for all the amenities in the cape and this is definitely one of the best places to stay in Hout Bay. At a good price. What else do you need?

Great staff, first class room. Excellent food and service. Self help honesty bar. Lovely public rooms and gardens. Met on the first day by Carole-Anne who was a charming host. The room was extremely spacious and well presented. Had wifi. First class facilities.

This place is rather a large B&B guesthouse with a large garden. The breakfast could be slightly better. No wifi in the rooms but very good wifi in the lobby and bar. The lounge and bar are really nice and big. Friendly staff. Safe environment. You need a car.

I rate this lodge highly. It is tucked into the hills above Hout Bay among the most beautiful surroundings. What impressed me most was its presentation as a clean, well run family business whose owners take a personal interest in ensuring guests receive the high level and quality of attention they expect. They have a bar run on an honesty system which exemplifies the style of lodge. The breakfast is really good and caters for many tastes; I had the full english but there are also the health stuff, fruits and cheeses available.

The lodge is clean, spacious, secure and welcoming: the breakfasts are great and there is an honesty bar. We had an excellent stay in a good sized, comfortable room with tea making facilities ...... but felt that the absence of a room fridge denied us from giving the lodge the very top marks.

A home away from home. Excellent service by owners. Beautiful comfortable rooms. Parking on site. Just big enough to be a personal experience with a homely feel. Delicious breakfasts. Close to Hout Bay, but away from the noise. My favourite lodge. Left it too late to book in for December :-(

We have stayed at Tarragona Lodge for 4 nghts and we loved it. The rooms are large and clean, the staff polite and sympathetic and the location is wonderful, among the mountains. It is a little bit far from Cape Town but it wasn't a problem for us as we have rented a car and drove every day to the touristics points. We strongly recommend them.
