“Fabulous bed and breakfast in Cape Town!”
Reviewed 1 October 2016

This is the ideal place for a vacation in Cape Town. It is located in a pleasant residential area that is a 20 minute walk or short cab ride from the center of the city. Our room was spacious and comfortable and our hosts, Niki and Chris, really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. They had excellent suggestions for places to eat, they booked our tickets for Table Mountain, and they provided a lavish breakfast that kept us going for most of the day. They also connected us to Ismail Parker, who took us on a great day trip to Cape Point for a very reasonable cost.

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.
