Our Guests

On my last night in South Africa I thought I would spoil myself with a night at the Lion’s Eye. I was not disappointed. Service and the room was wonderful as you would expect however the views were stunning!
Great location, beautiful view, friendly staff. No complaints. The place is very modern. My wife and I stayed in one of the smaller bedrooms, and it was very spacious with its own balcony and large, beautiful bathroom.
We stayed at the Lion's Eye for our first two nights in Cape Town on our Honeymoon. Wow – what an introduction to the city! Stepping out onto their balconies to see their view of Camps Bay is just breathtaking.

Camps Bay has it all

The most beautiful bay in Cape Town with its white sandy beach lined by palm trees and towered by the Twelve Apostles mountain range providing the ultimate setting for world class dining, entertainment, accommodation and recreation.
