nice looking property but the gate was locked

Posted Dec 5, 2016
Pros: I did not stay there?
Cons: public relations
Location: on a hillside in South Africa, watch the birds?
gate was locked and no one answered the intercom. called the phone number of the guest house many times and no one responded. in conversation the next day with the proprietor, who was a little terse, stated should have called the mobile number, wat? anyway did not stay at this property, do not know what it was, nor care, who the heck locks the gate at 6pm and does not have security on the property in the evening?

Excellent accommodation

Posted Nov 2, 2015 on Hotels
We had a great stay at southern cross! Claudia & Marc were so friendly and welcoming upon our arrival and provided us with good information of where to visit and have our meals. The room decoration was so lovely and we could had see the ocean from our level 2 room. Its such a great place to hang out and spend a couple of days. There is no need to travel out with its alluring pool and chill out area. Strongly recommend anyone to stay there!

Excellent breakfast and comfortable rooms

Posted 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 Pleasant

Posted 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 Hosts

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.
