Score from 3 reviews Wonderful
The guesthouse is in a very convenient area close to my citi bus stop which made it easy for me to go to places quote easily. The breakfast was quite delicious eventhough it was offered at a restaurant that is 8 minute walk from the guesthouse.
The wifi turned off for about two hours but the problem was soon resolved.
Locality - very central. Walking distance to restaurants.
The owners of Lions are gentle and kind. They will make everything for you to feel comfortable, enjoy the City and solv any problem you may have. The house is Very large and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The kitchen is full equiped .
In despite of its good location, the house is in the top of a Hill!
The staff at the Lion's Guest House were very kind and helpful. We stayed in the Buffalo Apartment and while it was pretty basic, all of our needs were met. The location and price also cannot be beat.
Anthony went out of his way to accommodate us.
the view and my room thats all
oky as i was a guest i will say my opinion.the first thing was the location you couldent find the place no sign whatso ever.secure parking???uhhmmm no on the street.breakfast???uhhhmmm yes but 3 blocks down.i was there 3 days and got there at 4pm in evening and my room was not cleaned or made up and there was a cockcroasch in my shower..really????very dissapointed!! really not good staff and management good but everything else no.would not recommend staying there.
No TV in rooms, no tea/coffee facility. No warning about rooms doorways being so low. Noted that adjacent room was only cleaned at 4.30 pm. No one came to make bed or clear out garbage or cups etc.
What i liked about the venue is the view and the accessibility. Everything was in close range and situated perfectly.
What i didnt like was that the room we got was like a maids room that was converted into a room and toilet underneath the house but neater. My impression i got from the pictures displayed on the internet was misleading. I wont make us of the venue again. The mattress was not good enough and there wasn't even a table with a kettle on it - only the main houses' kitchen. I wasnt impressed - and especially after i booked the place as a "second honeymoon" idea.
The location is amazing, tottaly safe and close to most of the major attractions of Cape Town. Lots of restaurants and bars at the area. The staff is super kind and friendly, highly recommended guest house!
i was down graded from a garden room to small cheaper room. no reimbursement, in fact told my room had a higher ceiling I should be pleased.
