Weekend Away
Location, Quiet, Peaceful
The Guest House was in a really nice location to Kloof and we could easily walk down to a lot of restaurants as well as down to Long Street. The place is very quiet and peaceful and even though it is next to a busy road, we never heard any cars or noise. The house is very nice and the bathroom was also very nice. A proper big shower and a big bed.

A great place to stay while visiting cape town
Staff friendliness, the location and great value for money
From before I arrived in Cape Town I received excellent service as I emailed the guest house for them to arrange an airport pick up for me which they did, complimentary. When I arrived I was greeted with friendliness and a lot of help from the duty managers, one even went to the shop to buy me some water as I was very tired from travelling. The Whale room was compact, but clean and comfortable and had a great view of Table Mountain. We liked the fact that there was a guest kitchen we could use, including a washing machine! We were given vouchers for our breakfasts at Arnold's restaurant, which were amazing, and we also went there for dinner! All in all it was a very enjoyable stay at The Lions Guest House.

Great guest house owned by super friendly family
Location, breakfast and manegement
We stay there for 9 nights. And it was a pleasant stay. This guest house is centrally located to shops, supermarkets and restaurants. Only 10 minute walk to Long Street. With breakfast, they give you vouchers that you can you in a restaurant/café called Arnold's close to the guest house. Each voucher worth R50 (US$5). If you go over $5, you just pay the difference. And the receptionists were very friendly and helpful. If you come across any problem, just let them know. They fix it straight away.

Average B&B - OK for shortstay
1. Exclusive entrace 2. Front desk people are friendly 3. Breakfast voucher
It was a OK B&B. It was good because it had a separate entrance to our unit. Simple basic. We were disappointed to see that the house keeping did not include washing basic washing of a coffee cup or wine glass. We had to do it ourselves for 2 nights. Bathroom basin was too small. We couldn't figure out where to put our toiletry bag.

A safe haven close to Long Street
Great Breakfast, Good Wi-Fi, Good location.
I stayed for week to watch the Cricket Match involving Australia and South Africa. The Guest House is only 20 minutes walk from the train station and less than 10 minutes from the bars and restaurants on Kloof and Long Streets. I found the area safe to walk around in the evenings. The breakfast down the hill at Arnolds was superb. If I return I might stay in one of the rooms in the floor above as the "Garden view" rooms have a few big steps to negotiate due to it being built on a hill. A bit more attention to cleaning and emptying bins in the room more regularly would bring a further improvement. Good value for money when everything is taken into consideration.
