This is my fourth visit to the Little Lemon in Antrim Road, Green Point, Cape Town and there is absolutely no need for me to write yet another review as last year the Little Lemon won an award for Excellence and not before time. What is about this 12 roomed accommodation that is so different? Ralf Schaefer is the captain...

Thanks to Ralf, his staff and his dogs, we had a great stay during our six day visit in Cape Town. The rooms are pretty big and I think each room has a patio or terrace. Breakfast is served outdoors each day in a really relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Ralf is a great help with organizing trips in or around...

This is my first ever review on Tripadvisor, but having just gotten back from 3 weeks in South Africa I just wanted to thank owner Ralph and his uber-helpful staff @ Little Lemon Tree. Homely and excellent value guest house with a lovely garden, where Ralph serves breakfast on communal tables during the summer months to all his guests. Very...

Little Lemon Tree was an ideal starting point for our trip through South Africa and was a good base to explore the city. People are friendly and efficient, the whole place beautifully set up, quiet and with nice touches. Clean rooms, yummy breakfast, good tips -- we couldn`t have asked for more.

We stayed here for a business trip for 5 days and every day was a full pleasure to get back to. Great internet, and we had no television. That combination I consider to be ideal! No need for Tele anyway! The breakfast is absolutely awesome. If you're German, you might even appreciate it more! An oasis of tranquility, even while...

“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”
