Excellent breakfast and comfortable roomsPosted Apr 19, 2015 on Hotels
Comfortable beds and excellent breakfast. Suggest taking a pair of slippers as the floors are not carpeted and can be cold in winter. Be aware that this guest house CLOSES AT 6PM so even if you have a booking confirmation for the evening and arrive after 6 pm you may not be accommodated

Very PleasantPosted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: Hosts, Room, breakfast, service were all good. The decor and standard of cleanliness was very high
Cons: Transport obtions to Cape Town and surrounding area. List of recommended taxis?
Location: Tai restaurant, Spar supermarket and shops. The area is very quiet and peaceful. It has a swimming pool and sun lounge and very beautiful gardens
My stay was only for one night, so I was not able to enjoy all of the facilities, however, my room, breakfast and the service was very good. The hosts were also very nice and helpful. They promptly returned to me some valuable items I had forgotten in the safe. My only reason for giving 4 stars is the fact that there is no easy access to Cape Town except by hired or private car. Even though it's about 20-30 mins drive from Cape Town, I couldn't get a taxi and since I did not drive I had to wait around to be collected.

We had the Africa room at the Southern Guest house - it was big and had 2 bathrooms! There is a great patio & pool area as well as nice seating areas on the property. The hosts are friendly and helpful!

Excellent hotel with friendly hosts who were very welcoming and made use feel at home. The breakfast was great as well as the rooms which were very spacious and nicely decorated. There was a nice sundeck which overlooked the sea which was a great place to relax.

Friendly HostsPosted Oct 15, 2014 on Hotels
We had a great stay. Our room was 2 levels with charm and comfort. It was the finish to a 3 week trip. Marc and Claudia were the Best. Their recommendations were a big help. It was a lovely surrounding that was a nice finish to our South African adventure.

Beautiful spacePosted May 17, 2014 on Hotels
Slightly away from the wine estates in Somerset West but easy to find and close to the mall - with a view out to sea from the decking. Well kept and recently renovated this is a summer spot to enjoy but wasn't bad in the pouring rain either! Very good sized room with a huge shower and a wide ranging breakfast there is something for everyone at Southern Cross guesthouse and we would certainly stay again if visiting Somerset West!

Ideal safe location run by friendly hosts.Posted Apr 14, 2014
Pros: The location and ambience
Location: Wang Thai restaurant nearby, very good Thai food.
A short drive from Cape Town International and greeted by very friendly hosts. The area is very safe and the guest house is a short drive from the Mall. The room was highly appointed and very comfortable. The hosts paid a lot of attention to detail which reflects in the quality of guest house. The breakfast was very healthy and good quality. Would return with the whole family if I get a chance. One of the best guest houses I have stayed in (there have been many).
