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.

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 .
