Breakwater Lodge is a three star hotel can not be beaten for position in Cape Town and is the answer if you are on a tight budget. You will not find a better value for money right in the heart of the V and A Waterfront.

The hotel was once a 19th century prison and today provides comfortable, inexpensive accommodation that looks out over the harbour and up to Table Mountain.

The accommodation is made up of 300 comfortable, basic but attractively furnished rooms providing a relaxing environment when its time to put your feet up!

This is a real basic hotel so donít expect too much. Everything you are going to need is in the waterfront anyway.

Pop out of the hotel and you can enjoy the best the V&A Waterfront has to offer. The hotel is 20 minutes drive from Cape Town airport and 5 minutes from the city center and its nightlife.

The waterfront has numerous shops and restaurants in walking distance and a 10 minute drive gets you to Camps Bay and Clifton Beaches.

300 bedrooms - Business and family suites - Twin, double and single rooms with en-suite bath or shower - Single and twin rooms sharing a shower.

The rooms are all comfortable, welcoming and attractively furnished and equipped with TV / radio and a direct-dial telephone. If you need a little refreshment, a welcome tray with biscuits and the facility to make your own tea and coffee is supplied.

For groups on a very tight budget stay in the two rooms which share a bathroom.
