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.

All the suites have their own private, separate entrance with secure off street parking. The suites have access to a pretty secluded garden area which is dominated by a beautiful 180 year old Oak tree. The shade from the tree and the entertainment from the numerous squirrels scurrying for acorns make it a peaceful setting for early morning breakfast or afternoon tea.

All three suites are equipped with satellite TV and have access to Wireless Internet.

Two additional guests can be accommodated within the larger self-catering suites if required.

Absolutely delightful; in particular the breakfasts. We especially enjoyed the fantastic picnic breakfast provided for us to have on the top of Lion's Head. Very memorable.
