Budget Accommodation in Cape Town

Riverview Lodge has more than 20 years in the budget accommodation business with an excellent reputation for clean, comfortable accommodation and outstanding service standards & value for money.

Riverview Lodge was the first really large lodge in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town providing group bookings large & small at affordable rates. We have subsequently expanded our business and are now able to offer varying types of affordable accommodation in a range of different guest houses, executive flats, cottages and apartments. Our accommodation options are located in Observatory, Rosebank and Rondebosch. 2017 student accommodation applications are now open on our dedicated student accommodation page!

Our main guest lodge, Riverview Lodge, can accommodate up to 180 people in various combinations of single, twin and dorm bedrooms. Riverview Lodge is ideal for sports teams, universities seeking student accommodation in Cape Town, NGOs and school groups needing budget accommodation solutions.

We boast several self catering cottages in Observatory, Rosebank and Rondebosch, as well as 8 self catering flats and a number of Victorian houses and Cottages. These are all situated very close to U.C.T. and are ideal for visiting students needing short or long term accommodation. They are also suitable for ‘holiday lets’ during the holiday months of December and January.

We also specialise in providing short term leases (3/6/10 month) to foreign students involved in U.C.T.’s international academic program (I.A.P.O.) and other international academic programs. As these cottages are occupied during term time, they become available as holiday accommodation in December and January.
