Nestled just at the base of Table Mountain and centrally located near downtown, Lezard Bleu is the best place to stay in Cape Town. Rather than a sterile, traditional hotel, his guest house truly feels like home. The proprietors who have been welcoming guests for twenty years are warm and exceptionally accommodating. They are quick to provide expert advice on... More

We stayed in the Tree house for two days and we had a wonderful time at the Lézard Bleu. The room was huge and beautifully decorated. The staff and the host couldn't be nicer and they were always available to offer advices or just to chat with us. The breakfast is gorgeous and includes everything (eggs, croissants, fruits, meat, ...).... More

This is the second time I have been here. The staff are great, they do everything to accommodate your needs. I would like to point out a small detail as a business traveller and that is they already have in the rooms plug adapters for pc or other things that not even in high class hotels have.

"Guest house" does not do this wonderful place any justice. It's like entering an artistic sphere - an oasis in a delightful, quiet area of the city - against the background of the mountains and with the urban lights of Cape Town twinkling below. For once, words fail me. I think one of the LB's greatest assets is the manager/housekeeper... More

You enter the gate (you leave the car outside, parked on the road) and are greeted by two barking dogs who come toards you. Nothing to be scared off, but if you are not fund of dogs, disturbing.

Let me start by saying that I would have given it a five star perfect rating, except for the notable absence of air conditioning. We arrived on a day where the temperature was 44 degrees Celsius, and I'm Canadian. Imagine my face when we learned there was no air conditioning. We did have a fan, but my sleep was not... More

Thanks a lot for your honest wording and many thanks for the praise in general. After the unusual very, very hot days we had for weeks this season, we do have some portable air condition units in mind ! In the past not an issue in Cape Town, but as we all know - Mother Earth is heating up ! More

We recently stayed at Lezard with Nikki where she and Lizzie looked after all our needs and we did prove to be rather demanding guests particularly when we left a passport behind and were trying to hire a car.

The best compliment one can give an establishment, is to return for another visit. We've returned five times to date, and will go again next December. When we are there, we meet lots of friends - all also returning guests! What else can I say?
