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 house : not seen !!
we must do it with the maid ! At breakfast , we must ask her in the kitchen if we could have an egg!
When we asked the call a taxi,to go diner ,we felt very guilty, because she complained that the could not pay. We do not go back.

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 century at least... All good wishes for both of you

Thank you dear Niki and Chris and extended family !! ---- for a wonderful 4 nights spent in your Tree House which we enjoyed so much.
Lezard Bleu is definatley to be recommended, especially the Tree House room ---- so close to town and yet so far away it seemed to us, looking onto the massive Palm trunks and into swaying palm leaves with the lights of Cape Town way below.
See you again, lots of love... Karen & Oleg

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 family, so if you don't like dogs...

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. I stayed in the Tree House which has fantastic views over Cape Town. The breakfasts are delicious. The owners, a German couple, very friendly and interesting and helpful. On top it seems to be a perfect base to explore CT.

Tree House room is very spacious, perfect internet, nice bathroom. Absolutely nothing to complain about.

Will try and stay here again if I come back to CT.

Room Tip: Tree House is great. Have not seen the other rooms.

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. You are really made to feel part of the family. Its great having breakfast with other visitors from whom you also learn much!! Very accessible to nearby restaurants and a nice walk or a taxi ride to other parts of Capetown.

Chris and Niki are very knowledgeable about the area and give great advice on things to do!! I was only sorry that we couldn't stay longer. Would definitely recommend Lezard Bleu and hope to be back again soon!!

It's very common to find a nine bed and breakfast in capetown for sure. However this place has a more then bed and breakfast. Yes it's not luxury but comfortable, very welcome. If you are looking a place for feel like you are welcome and sit around relaxed this is for you. Lovely and delicious breakfast very international guests, good wine. Clean rooms, lovely hosts:) you will like it definetely.

Room Tip: Their corner room is the biggest one at the end of the corridor on the entry level.
