From are 15 nights in South-Africa : this was the least ! The location was not zo good :far away from everything : there is no reason to stay there. The house is not cozy, not tastefull not beautifull. The room was ok, but not cozy. There are always 3 dogs , also on your breakfast-table! The lady of the... More

Dear Mr/Ms Schoof, many thanks for the honest review. Terribly sorry that your expectations in our house were not fulfilled. Unfortunately you hit the one night we could not be around and at your service. However, it is by now a global norm to refrain from calling any service personnel a "maid" or a "boy". This is a bit last... More

It will be hard to find a guesthouse in Capetown that is more welcoming, warmer and easygoing as Le Lezard Bleu. Chris and Nicki are awesome hosts, providing advice, a helping hand with reservations and a great breakfast. Location is good. It was best start imaginable for a short visit to the city. The three dogs are part of the... More

After spending a few depressing nights in the Protea Island Club in Century City, I relocated to this little beauty in CT. And what a difference I got. You are made to feel super welcome.

Stayed here for two nights - this is my second time to stay in Lezard Bleu. Chris and Niki made our stay really home from home (in fact better than home) - they could not be more helpful in every way. Rooms are very comfortable and breakfast is amazing.

We stayed for 2 nights in the treehouse and based ourselves here to visit Cape Town. The views from the spacious tree house are just superb, looking over the city, to the harbor. We could see the cruise ships, Queen Mary, in dock. It is set back from the road and surprisingly peaceful, considering you are so close to the... More

We booked here as wew liked the idea of the'Tree House',which wasnt really such but part of a structure at the back of the garden albeit that the view was good and the accomodation OK although one of the less comfortable beds we found in SA.

But good to get some criticism too. That keeps you alert and is so important in any industry. Be happy you did not stay in... More
