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.
