The Lions Guest House

The Lions Guest House The Lions is a spacious and recently refurbished double-story, Victorian establishment situated in the leafy suburb of Tamboerskloof. Ideally located in the heart of Cape Town between Table Mountain and the City Centre, The Lions has retained its old-world feel with the original Oregon floors and a hint of South African colour and spirit.
