“Perfection in Capetown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2016

Nestled just at the base of Table Mountain and centrally located near downtown, Lezard Bleu is the best place to stay in Cape Town. Rather than a sterile, traditional hotel, his guest house truly feels like home. The proprietors who have been welcoming guests for twenty years are warm and exceptionally accommodating. They are quick to provide expert advice on touring, hiking, wine-tasting, theatre, etc. The common areas are cozy and comfortable and a good place to engage other travelers from Africa, the US and Europe. Bedrooms that open out to patios or decks overlooking stunning garden and pool also have large, modern bathrooms. One of the best benefits is the exquisite breakfast made to order with local ingredients. The proprietors also have three adorable dogs that are exceptionally well-behaved and hang out peacefully on the property. I have visited Capetown a number of times but in the future, I will always stay at Lezard Bleu.

A little belated but a super big "Thank You" for your brilliant words and great review. Unfortunately we had to send 2 of the 3 well-behaved dogs into the endless playground
in April, they have been rather old and sick lately... but big Willem got a sister just this month and we shall keep it at 2 dogs for now ! All the best and looking forward to welcome you here again the near future...

We stayed in the Tree house for two days and we had a wonderful time at the Lézard Bleu. The room was huge and beautifully decorated. The staff and the host couldn't be nicer and they were always available to offer advices or just to chat with us.
The breakfast is gorgeous and includes everything (eggs, croissants, fruits, meat, ...).

Thanks to Chris, Lizzy and Willem! This is such a warm place that we will never forget.

Room Tip: The tree house is wonderful, beautiful room that offers an amazing view on Cape Town.

This is the second time I have been here. The staff are great, they do everything to accommodate your needs. I would like to point out a small detail as a business traveller and that is they already have in the rooms plug adapters for pc or other things that not even in high class hotels have. The selection at breakfast was 5 ***** with bacon and eggs made to order, selections of cheese, fruit, cold meats, cereal etc
Well done! You have a lot of passion in what you are doing.

"Guest house" does not do this wonderful place any justice. It's like entering an artistic sphere - an oasis in a delightful, quiet area of the city - against the background of the mountains and with the urban lights of Cape Town twinkling below. For once, words fail me. I think one of the LB's greatest assets is the manager/housekeeper Lizzie - a power house of infectious energy and warmth and affection - always there to offer uncomplaining assistance - brilliant at tips for places to eat. And then there are the little touches in the rooms - ground coffee and a cafetiere - lovely toiletries. We loved every minute of our stay.

Room Tip: Fight, do anything you can to get the tree house - loads of space, a balcony and startlingly stunnin...

Lizzy says thank you for your wonderful and heartily appreciation, yes, we are still proud and happy to have her on the stern which allows us to take a break from time to time, knowing that all guests will be looked after with great care. No, words definitely have not failed you at all ! Many thanks indeed and all the best
