Good location, close to hop on hop off bus stop. Many good restaurants in the neighborhood. Clean and well decorated room. Staff very friendly. Breakfast good, but not very well organized when it was many people at the same time. No air condition in the room, and a fan that didn’t work, so we had to choose between a very hot room, or open the window, and be attached by mosquitos. The safe in the room was not possible to open after closing, so don’t put anything in it before trying the lock. The swimming pool was not very well kept clean. Maybe because of the water situation in Cape Town. Anyway it was a good value for money.

Great location, close enough to the city centre (3 minute Uber) and also attractions such as Clifton Beach and the Table Mountain cable cars. The location also felt safe. The staff were outstandingly courteous and made sure our trip was a success. An excellent breakfast served each day. The rooms are very stylish. We extended our stay while there and plan to return later in the year. Overall, you cannot go wrong with this place - we tried three other guest houses / B&Bs before deciding that this one is the best in Cape Town!

Nice, cosy guest house with perfect breakfast. Staff very friendly. Walking distance to the Seaview point - beachside; hotel its bit on the hill - walking 150 metres up to hill; only not for people with knee condition or elderly; Otherwise easy to walk. Recommend for couples or single travellers. Good value for money.

Sweet Lemon is a beautiful and clean guest house. The breakfast is great and the city center as well as Victoria & Alfred Waterfront can be reached within some minutes by car. The staff is friendly and helpful.

The idea was to get away from home and go somewhere where it is quiet, peaceful and tranquil. Sweet Lemon offered exactly that. The staff were welcoming, The guesthouse itself is close to amenities, is located in a quiet street. Fellow guests were peaceful too. We truly enjoyed the outing.

Very friendly staff (Bridget2 and 1) every room is unique, the bathroom with shower very modern, nice view to the sea - a really beautiful place to stay. The guetsthouse is close to everything in town, supermarkets, restaurants etc.

We stayed for 2 nights. Good service and very nice and friendly staff, specially Bridget2. Each room is very unique, clean, big and comfortable. Close to variety of restaurants and walking distance from the seafront.

Sweet Lemon was everything and more than the website description. It felt like a home away from home. Each room is tastefully decorated with a personal touch, and has it's own unique feel. The staff were helpful, and I'd like to particularly mention the lady in the kitchen who was able to provide everything we needed from scissors to Wifi codes to a great bacon and egg breakfast! I would definitely visit again and recommend this cute and cosy spot for anyone visiting CPT

Wonderful place to stay and relax,with very nice and friendly stuff. Greetings to Bridget. Everything perfect, nothing to criticize. Excellent! Every place in the city easy to reach.Defintely worth it to come again.

This guesthouse is oozing with charm! We stayed here as part of our tour for two nights our tour group occupied the whole guesthouse and all rooms we saw were lovely and unique. We stayed in Blue Sky which is one of the two rooms upstairs was incredible and huge! It had a full kitchen, lounge area which had a great view of signal hill and large outside entertaining area. There is such a homely feel throughout the hotel. The breakfast was really good and tasty. We paid for Wi-Fi which was fine and it worked perfectly. Laundry services are also reasonably priced and efficient. The location is handy to walk some lovely restaurants and close enough to get a cheap cab or Uber to other main attractions. The neighbourhood was quiet from any noise. A great little place we were really surprised at how lovely this place was!
