We enjoyed a 4-day stay at the Little Lemon Tree. Our room, in the main house, with big, private balcony was lovely: wooden floors, beautiful colours, comfortable bed, great shower. Not sound-proof, but the atmosphere of the house and the place makes up for that. The beautiful and creatively designed garden, is also a nice place to spend some time....

The little Lemon Tree has everything that you are looking for. Great location, very nice, spacious and clean rooms. Huge breakfast attacking your waistline and great guests. Why is this B&B different than others ? I can only tell from my own experience that the difference is caused by the proprietor Ralf. The Little Lemon Tree has besides all the...

I spent only one night here, but it sure was a good choice. My room was neat and very clean. Ralf and team were great hosts, friendly, and always willing to accommodate the guests. Nice atmosphere around the guest house.

I highly recommend this wonderful place! We stayed for 6 nights and felt very much at home at this beautiful yellow house, so nicely decorated wherever you looked. The lush garden with its pool area and beautiful terrace where the fantastic breakfast was served every morning also created a very relaxed atmosphere. The rooms were also so nicely decorated and...

We have visited Cape Town many times, but on our most recent visit were lucky enough to stumble across what is, in our honest opinion, the best kept secret in Cape Town. It truly is a home from home: very comfortable and tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean rooms set in beautiful gardens. Warm and welcoming staff, and the host/owner, Ralf, is...

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Ralf's Little Lemon Tree last Feb (2013). We loved the place from the minute we stepped inside. We had tea sent up to our room almost immediately. It was a wonderful to just sit back and relax that first couple of hours after our long journey from Mumbai. Ralf was most helpful...

“I like the rooms on the 1st floor better than the ones on the ground floor. Try to get the one facing the street with the outdoor bathtub on your balcony :-)”

“Depending on your tastes consider to ask for either the old house which is antique and very well restored or new house which is modern and made to look like the old one in a very tasteful manner Personally I seem to think Cape Town is one of the best Cities in the World ,it certianly is unique and might not necessarily be cost effective to visit for ever”
