Penthouse is amazing

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Nov 2023
Stayed in the Penthouse. View of ocean and mountains from your private terrace is AMAZING! Penthouse is huge. The shower may give you pause because it "feels" open to outside but the windows are frosted adequately. Didn't use the jacuzzi wish I would have. Nice walk to waterfront but it is not flat. View from dining area is amazing as well

We had a wonderful stay at the Living Hotel Lion's Eye.

Our room was lovely. We stayed in the Atlantic room and had an amazing view of the sea and Camps Bay area. You could see the view from the shower and bath too which was cool. The rooms were well looked after and had good facilities.

The hotel itself was also fantastic - breakfast was great with lots of choice. There is an lovely lounge area with an honesty bar which is really nice to have and then food is available from 12 - 9. We had the Phili Cheese steak sandwich which was AMAZING. Definitely do plan to have a meal here if you can!

The trip was part of our honeymoon and the staff made us feel so special. They decorated our room and gave us some treats. It really added to our stay.

The best bit for me was the staff. Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay amazing. Kalin in particular was so accommodating to us and really looked after us. Calvin also helped make our stay extra special. It's a small hotel so the staff really look after you well.

The hotel itself is a short walk to Camps Bay and close to the tourist hot spots so great from that perspective too. Definitely stay here if you're in the area!!

Not only is this place located within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, bars, it overlooks the bay with beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean.
The staff are friendly and accommodating and the room is huge and very clean. Laundry is free, as is breakfast, and bottled water is offered for your excursions.

Room tip: We used Uber to get to places beyond walking distances, very reasonable and available. Tours of the cape, wine country, city, penguins…

I ended up proposing to my now fiancé in the Lion's Head room overlooking the ocean and Lion's Head on the balcony. The staff were very helpful and organised a romantic experience in the room with rose petals, chocolates, flowers, and a platter with high quality champagne and food. The staff were also very friendly and helpful when we had questions about Cape Town and Camps Bay. We spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool overlooking the ocean with a cocktail in hand. I cannot recommend this place enough. We will definitely be back!

We spent 3 nights here in Feb: the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms were spotless and a good size and I’ve never had so much storage space in a hotel room (great for us as we’d been away for 11 days at this point and had a lot of luggage). There was free bottled water everywhere in the hotel and fruit in the rooms; the mini bar was well-stocked when we arrived and everything in it was complimentary (although not replenished).

Some minor points (which is why I’m not giving a 5* review):
When we arrived, one of the guests was cooking a stir-fry in the kitchen; this made it feel a bit more like a youth hostel than a luxury boutique hotel, although the communal spaces were quite spacious (if there had been a large group of people cooking inside and sitting downstairs, I’d have found that very odd-putting!)
The breakfast was a little haphazard: while the staff were very pleasant, there was no juice one day, no bread the next (I understand about the difficulties with load-shedding but this was more of a basic problem with supplies).
The pool wasn’t very clean: this was a shame as we sat out on the terrace two days running and even if we didn’t want to swim, it would’ve been nice to sit around an inviting pool. The view from the terrace was terrific.

Having said all that, we enjoyed our stay and the hotel was in a good location for walking into and out of Camps Bay (we’ve stayed in a few guest houses there and some require a very steep walk back!)
