I absolutely loved my stay at the Lions Guesthouse. The staff went out of their way to accommodate me, we had lots of friendly chats and the rooms are clean and nicely decorated.

The location is ideal, right in the heart of trendy Tamboerskloof, near all the restaurants, bars and shops... despite this it's a sanctuary of stillness in the buzz of the city. The garden with lemon trees is a great spot for a quiet coffee and paper before the day's adventures!

We have been at The Lions Guest House twice and we have always felt at home, and even spoiled. Warm and sweet welcome, cosy living room where to meet and chat with the other guests, relaxing garden, excellent communication, smiling staff and friendly owner. The first time we stayed in large, new and comfortable room, while the second time, for a longer staying, the owner was so kind to upgrade us to the apartment. Fully equipped, well organized and with design furniture, it has been the perfect solution.
We could not recommend a better place to come home after a day wandering around and outside Cape Town.

I stayed in one of the garden rooms and am in awe and envy of the beautiful backyard garden. The staff were friendly, professional and helpful. The great plus of the Lion guesthouse is it's location - it's within walking distance of lively Kloof street with it's variety of restaurants and pubs. The rate for my stay was excellent - I'll definitely keep an eye on future specials when travelling to Cape Town.

Room Tip: Because the garden rooms are not in the main section of the guesthouse it's feels cocooned - however I would not recommend for anyone who has difficulty climbing a few stairs. The Whale room was perfect for a long peaceful sleep after a grueling day.

Our stay in Lions was perfect. It is located in a nice neighborhood, quite close walking to the center and many restaurants.The rooms are confortable, the house has a nice decoration, you can use the living room, kitchen and has garden with wiews to Table Mountain. The ownwers also are so friendly and help us in everything we need. The best value for money we found in the city, 100% recommended

We flew down to the Cape for our annual vacation and after some drama with delayed flights, we were pleasantly and warmly welcomed into this lovely guesthouse by the most gracious of hosts. The newly renovated Lion room was fit for my king and I, well decorated, clean, spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast was delectable, the views from the beautifully manicured, cozy garden offered us the best seat at the Table (mountain). We truly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return for a longer stay next time, we hope all renovations are completed by then.
