Close access to the V and A waterfront, this winding courtyard hotel was a chance find for a lovely overnight stay. Breakfast is served outside in the garden, in a communal atmosphere, and includes pretty much everything for any type of guest need. Likely to suit most guests.

Ralf and his team are wonderful hosts. Very warm ambiance, calm and clean. The Little Lemon Tree is like an island in the vibrant city of CT. It is ideally located near the Waterfront either for walking or taxi/bus exploration of the city. We loved the nice breakfast outside in the shade and the inspiring conversation with Ralf at the...

Is it the location being so close to the beaches and a shortish distance from the Waterfront and city? Is it the magnificent sub tropical gardens and the immaculate lawn scattered with deck chairs? Is it the rooms that are beautifully cleaned every day? Maybe it is the communal breakfast where you can sit and chat to other guests for...

Arriving by car in Cape Town earlier than expected and on a weekend, we were lucky enough to randomly find this place very late in the evening, after every other place we checked were full. And what a find! The staff was very helpful, helping me park the rental car in the already overcrowded street and being just very nice...

We had a really great time. Rlaf was super welcoming. He took a personal interest in his guests. He helped where ever he could. The rooms have a decent size. Are always clean and organized. Great that it has a fridge and a safe. We felt home away from home and can only recommend this place to anyone one visiting...

This B&B is perfect for an easy-going, leisure stay with a personal touch, confortable rooms and a friendly welcome from the host, Ralf, who has kept the instalations in mint condition and makes sure you are well-looked after. Great for quick access to the town and transport links to the beach, it's also quiet and the breakfast is a winner,...

In general a very well located guest house with lots of charm and friendly owner and staff. They serve a lovely continental breakfast outside in summer. This guest house is more for visitors on a relaxing holiday as it is a problem getting breakfast served earlier than 8h30 if you are staying over for business and have a hectic schedule.

“Depending on your tastes consider to ask for either the old house which is antique and very well restored or new house which is modern and made to look like the old one in a very tasteful manner Personally I seem to think Cape Town is one of the best Cities in the World ,it certianly is unique and might not necessarily be cost effective to visit for ever”
