The staff is friendly and helpful, the room quiet (though the street on which the guesthouse is situated is quite busy). I enjoyed my short stay.

Great value!
We only stayed one night at the lions guest house, but we could have stayed many more. The rooms are well equipped and the bed is super comfortable. The bath is new and has a nice bathtub which will be an awesome attribute for when the water situation in Cape Town improves. The place furthermore as a really cozy garden and very friendly and helpful staff!
