    Very friendly owners and good sized room with view to table mountain.Nice location, close enough to walk to the cafes and restaurants on Kloof Street.

    Breakfast was not at the hotel, but a voucher was given for a cafe down the road, which was fine. However, voucher was for cooked breakfast only, it would be great to have some choice.

    The Lions is in an excellent location. The room and facilities are very nice. The owner was very helpful and congenial. I would recommend the Lions to anyone visiting Cape Town. I would not hesitate to stay there again if I go back to Cape Town.

    Nothing. Everything was fine.
