The guest house is delightfully decorated with many unique furnishings. My apartment was very well equipped and included a lovely balcony with a view over the lions head mountain. Breakfasts were plentiful and cooked items cheerfully provided. A 'daily special' was provided - this was usually a smoothy. Rooms have good quality linens and many other amenities including hairdryer, tea...

Sweet Lemon B&B: colored and stylish, rooms are clean and comfortable but superior one or junior suite are the best option. Very good breakfast. Friendly stuff. No parking available and no view. We stayed one night in a standard room (open bathroom without door) and one night in a superior cottage (small apartment with kitchen).

Fabulous end to our tour from Johannesburg. Very friendly, authentic African decor, small guest house, stroll to the Waterfront, wonderful breakfasts - just like home. Short stroll to restaurants and boardwalk.

This is a nice hotel in very good location, just near the main road of sea point. Transport, bar, restaurant, shops,.. everything is very close to. The room was awesome. There was no security people, even no hotel staffs at the night time. But we didn't feel any issue.

They put me in a house by myself, bathroom was basic and bed was upstairs. there were lots of random steps everywhere and the house was a bit wettish, it even rained inside when it was outside. The breakfast was plenty and the location safe.

We had a very good deal from Agoda so we can't complain about the price. The room was cosy, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was excellent. However for a 4 star Guest House it had a lot of shortcomings. We arrived at 19h30. No reception. We had to call someone to let us in. Although we paid for...

I enjoyed my stay at Sweet Lemon, it was awesome, luv the position, to town, love the eclectic homely Decor as well, awesum Breakfast, Great, friendly staff, an Oasis in pet friendly establishments!

I recently spent two nights at Sweet Lemon, and was thoroughly impressed with everything from service to the accommodations. Reasonably priced, with a fantastic breakfast, this B&B is well worth a visit.

“- Late arrivals need to call a local number to be let in. If you are a foreigner, get a local SIM card at the airport so you don't need to use roaming. - Balcony Room with ensuite is nice (Not all rooms have ensuite, so make a request beforehand) - Wifi isn't free”
