Close to the city and with Table Mountain framing this well tended family guest house you are welcomed by Chris and Nikki into a friendly family atmosphere. Staff are so nice and obliging. Wonderful little pool in a beautiful garden setting. The breakfasts are magnificent, everything is so laid back, even to the point of helping yourself to the drinks...

We stayed for 6 nights in Jan 2014 with my two little girls and my parents, and all 6 of us enjoyed Lezard Bleu very much. Chris and Nikki were both very friendly and helpful, and other staff especially Lizzie who couldn't do enough to help. Our family room on the lower floor was great and it seems all rooms...

This is a beautiful guest house, great pool and gardens with views up to table mountain. The room was nice and clean with a good ensuite. The owners were incredibly helpful and lovely.

Dear Mr/Ms Schoof, many thanks for the honest review. Terribly sorry that your expectations in our house were not fulfilled. Unfortunately you hit the one night we could not be around and at your service. However, it is by now a global norm to refrain from calling any service personnel a "maid" or a "boy". This is a bit last...

It will be hard to find a guesthouse in Capetown that is more welcoming, warmer and easygoing as Le Lezard Bleu. Chris and Nicki are awesome hosts, providing advice, a helping hand with reservations and a great breakfast. Location is good. It was best start imaginable for a short visit to the city. The three dogs are part of the...

Stayed here for two nights - this is my second time to stay in Lezard Bleu.
