“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Leeuwenzee is located in Sea Point, just outside the Cape Town business centre at the base of Signal Hill. The guest house has easy access to shops in the main street (3 minute walk), esplanade (for walking, running) and the ‘V & A Waterfront’ (easy 5 minute drive). The scenic Camps Bay is a 10 minute drive south.

This was our 1st trip to South Africa (Cape Town). We stayed at Leeuwenzee with 7 members of a family aged from 16 to 75 travelling from Australia for a period of 11 nights in 3 rooms. From our arrival, this B & B became our ‘official’ home away from home. The staff went out of their way to help with any problems we had including chasing up baggage delayed for 36 hours, providing a GPS when the hire car one read everything in German, arranging airport shuttles, phoning for meal take aways, taxi’s etc.

The accommodation itself was clean, comfortable and secure. The breakfast (cold & hot) every morning was excellent. The facility has 5 car spaces available (1st come, 1st serve basis) however there is ample parking surrounding the guest house. Wifi is included. Grocery shopping, alcohol, take away and restaurants are in the main street (several 100 m down the hill).

If you’re looking for a comfortable, clean B & B with friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff this place ticks all of the boxes. Should we return to Cape Town, this is the first booking we’ll make.

We simply love this property - centrally located, very comfortable, clean rooms! This was our third time we have stayed at this b&b and we are going back again in April! The staff are super helpful and friendly.

We would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for the perfect bed and breakfast!

We booked this guesthouse during a last minute stop in Cape Town; the room was immaculate and spacious with good bathroom and tea/coffee making facilities. The location was a 30min walk to the V&A Waterfront but along the scenic coastal path.
Breakfast in the morning was excellent with so much choice and the staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgable. A very good stay.
