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.

We had a great time at the Lions Guest House. You really feel at home and the neighbourhood is really nice, quiet and accesible.

Excellent experience

This place was a perfect option for us. The security was good, the room (leopard room) was book and the bed was really comfy. They also changed the bedsheets everyday which was nice.

I was a bit hesitant to book us to stay here as the reviews were very general and average. We (girlfriend and I) needed 3 nights accommodation and this place exceeded our expectations! Very reasonably priced and centrally located - plus a stunning view of Table Mountain from our bedroom. We stayed in the Leopard Room. The was a slight glitch/confusion when we 1st arrived as the stand in duty manager wasn't sure which room we were staying in but assured us that we could leave our bags and go out for a couple hours and by the time we returned our room was ready and everything was still there. From that moment on, our experience there was amazing. The room was very big, the on-suite was also very nice and the kitchen was there to use as and when. The only issue with the kitchen was that the other rooms also use it, one of the rooms cooked a massive feast and didn't tidy up but seriously that didn't bother us much. The room had an amazing view of Table Mountain and the back gardens were very well maintained. The house is centrally located and you can reach any of the tourist hotspots with 10-15 minutes. They don't offer food at the actual house but are partnered with a restaurant called Arnold's, which is 10 minutes walk or 1 min drive. People complaining about this really need to think twice about things because seriously its no hardship and the food and service at the restaurant is absolutely amazing plus it is very reasonably priced compared to other restaurants in the area. Overall I would fully recommend The Lions Head and anyway looking for a reasonably priced place with good service, cleanliness, privacy & security shouldn't think twice. We will definitely be staying there again.
