“A very special place in my heart.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2017

This house will always have a special place in my heart from now on.
It is all Nikki's and Chris fault! :-) they are both such warm, lovely, caring, funny, helpful...etc...people!
I liked them immediately when I entered their lovely, cozy home. I believe it's the people who make ( or break) a place and in their case, you cannot not appreciate their deep humanity and sincerity. I even cried when we had to leave them after 6 days;It was like leaving dear friends you have known for many years...
I wish we could have stayed more and I really can't wait to be back there!
I enjoyed a lot our conversations with Chris around a glass of wine. I loved the lovely decor of the house, it feels very cosy.I loved the adorable dogs and the cat. The garden is gorgeous and so is the pool area...the view on Table Mountain is amazing.
The best were the breakfasts.I read that it is considered the best guesthouse breakfasts in Cape town and I am not surprised.Everything is freshly made with very good products and you have a huge selection of everything: cheeses, breads, delicatessen, fruits, etc etc...
I wish I won the lottery and I would go back there tomorrow! One can dream!
More seriously, we plan on going back in a year or two and we will stay there for sure.
I miss these people and this place!
PS: the rest of the staff is also really lovely and helpful.

Super cosy guesthouse. Warm welcome and quality services. Almost in the centre of Cape Town but a haven of peace. Very nice room with a little patio, a beautiful garden and a nice pool. Unfortunately we could'nt enjoy due to the weather and to little time. Excellent breakfast with fresh fruit and delicious bread (and that is seldom in South Africa).
A must!
Thanks to Niki, Chris and Lizzi for your generous hospitality!

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...
