Sweet Lemon is a fantastic little guesthouse in Sea Point. We had the Blue Sky room with our friends staying next door. This little apartment with kitchen and patio was perfect for our needs for our family of four. Plenty of space to stretch out and relax. The breakfast that was prepared for us downstairs in the morning by the... More

Breakfast was exceptional, lots of cereals, breads, yogurt, fresh fruit, and a cooked option. I liked the location - close to waterfront and a 30 minute walk to town in one direction or about 45 mins in the other to stunning beaches at clifton (probably 10 mins on the bus) The rooms were incredible, beautifully designed, slightly quirky and full...

Excellent location - walking distance to Main Street and the ocean - great restaurants on Main Street frequented by locals and tourists. There was a bit of noise from the neighbouring flats across the road.

We stayed for four days in Sweet Lemon and absolutely loved it. We had a large family room with two floors. The room was clean and lovely decorated, the breakfast was great and the staff was very friendly. Sweet Lemon is situated in a calm street with hardly any traffic. That was a plus too.

We arrived in Cape Town very late and the night porter took us to Sweet Lemon instead of Sweet Orange based on their availability, which was fine, and set us up well, although he signed us up for internet for a fee (which never worked but we were charged for) and told us breakfast was free and had it on...
