About Riverview Lodge

Riverview Lodge is a large Victorian guest lodge in trendy, historical Observatory. It provides affordable accommodation in a charmingly decorated, spacious old Victorian building and has a cozy home from home atmosphere. It is very centrally situated in the southern suburbs near to all that Cape Town has to offer.


We have single and twin rooms as well as bunk rooms and several self catering cottages (depending upon availability). We also have lounges, several patios, a braai facility with separate bathroom facilities for men and women. There are no en-suite bathrooms (separate male and female bathrooms).

We also specialise in large group bookings and can accommodate 180 guests in a variety of single, twin, three, four and eight bedded rooms - bunk beds (depending upon availability) - ideal for Schools, Universities, Technikons, Sport or large budget tour groups.

We reserve the right to allocate rooms at our discretion which could result in your group being split up in various properties. We also strongly recommend that you arrange for someone in Cape Town to come and visit Riverview Lodge, so that we can show them what, we have to offer which should ensure that your expectations are met on arrival.
