Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

This wonderful guesthouse is a very special place with a most perfectly balanced ambiance between totally professional and majorly chilled. It is so well located in one of the trendiest parts of Cape Town, a bit like the Chelsea of London. The owner Chris is a natural host. He and his staff provide the most spectacular breakfast I have ever...

Very friendly owner & staff, great location, close to table mountain & city center, great breakfast - one the best ever, a paradies for kids, nice pool area, newspaper in the morning, only an investment in the rooms (esp. bathroom) would be needed. But all in all: great stay in Capetown.

We had spent seven 7 nights in this lovely, well located guest house in Cape Town. The friendly and helping owners as well as the tidiness, the large pool and the superb breakfast made this place very special for us. We also enjoyed the open atmosphere of the place which allows having the sun-downer after the exhaustive trips through town...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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, ...)....
