About Sandown Lodge
Sandown Lodge is a charming 19th Century Georgian House, centrally situated in picturesque surroundings directly opposite Rondebosch Park. Its central location makes it an ideal base for business persons, academics and holiday makers.
Accommodation is offered in three light, spacious and well appointed double suites, each with en-suite bathroom.
Two of the suites are ideal for longer stays as they consist of a double bedroom, en-suite bathroom, lounge area and a kitchenette. The kitchenettes contain a microwave oven, two plate stove, fridge, kettle, toaster and all cutlery and crockery, to ensure convenience for guests wanting to self cater.
