Lonely lodge
The rooms are occupied in the main by guests - in the evenings, & no-one is physically available for any query. Parking area should be fenced off and gated to protect the vehicles. Service is OK.

Comfortable, good value and ideally situated
We were made to feel very welcome at The Lions. The room was clean and comfortable and breakfast was delicious and plentiful to the point that we didn’t need food again until dinner. There were complimentary cakes, sweets and port available in the common areas and a cozy lounge. We could see Table Mountain from the garden which no doubt we would have used a lot more if the weather had been better. We were really well placed to get into the city which you can easily do by bus, Uber (for about 30-40ZAR) or you can walk down in about 30 minutes. Marietta and the whole team were really helpful, regularly checking if the cable car was open for us and suggesting trips we could do. There are also a good number of restaurants and handy shops nearby. We’d definitely recommend Robben Island and Victoria and Alfred Waterfront as must dos. If you’re visiting Cape Town, we’d thoroughly recommend The Lions as a base, it’s perfectly situated and good value. #thenaughtonnomads

Beautiful and welcoming
Beautifully decorated and clean. The cleaning lady even packed away my clothes which I didn't expect. Lovely area, very quiet and safe. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Beautiful mountain views.

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.
