Sun Cottage was our first three nights accomodation on arriving in South Africa and Jean made us feel at home straight away. My 9 year old son and I stayed in the upstairs double room over looking the small river out the back. A well appointed comfortable room with beautiful bed linen, plenty of towels, lots of space and a... More

What a place. Beautiful sound of flowing water in the river and beautiful site of avocados hanging on that big tree! I had a pleasant stay even though Jean was away. I would have loved to meet her. I spent four (4) pleasant nights on leisure travel. Very easy access, short walking distance to restaurants that served my needs so... More

I had the pleasure of staying here for 8 days whilst my apartment was being renovated - so I needed a home from home. Jean was extremely helpful with the booking and the position of the place was beautiful. Bright, clean, spacious, with plenty of cupboard space too and with a door leading outside - I was very happy there.... More

Sun Cottage was the perfect location for the few days which my two sons and I spent in Cape Town. The situation is ideal - very quiet but within easy reach of the city and airport and Newlands village, just five minutes walk away, provided everything we needed in the way of places to eat for every meal. Our hosts... More

We stayed in the River room for the duration of our stay of 6 nights. This is a delightful B & B set in leafy Newlands. The sound of water in the little river alongside was great and assisted in helping us fall asleep. The location in Newlands is great with easy access to shops, pubs and restaurants. It is... More

Thanks for the affirmations and also for the honest critical feedback. We are tightening up on checks in the rooms. Definitely not acceptable. I hope we see you back at Sun Cottage in the future. More

My daughter and I stayed in the Loft suite and couldn't have been happier with the comfort and attention to detail we experienced. No one would have thought that such a rural feel could be obtained in the middle of a well established suburb like Newlands! From the squirrels foraging in the garden to the burbling of the river at... More

Myself and two colleagues had the pleasure of staying at Sun Cottages for a period of five days. What a delight! The setting is absolutely beautiful and both the Loft Suite and River room fulfilled our every need. I would really recommend this B&B for business and pleasure trips.

After an exhausting day visiting the Design Indaba at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, what a wonderful treat it was to arrive at Sun Cottage B&B in Newlands! The welcoming, tree-lined driveway, cosy thatched upstairs hideaway, complete with own private decked balcony, nestled amongst the lovely lush foliage of mature oak trees, made my stay there a truly memorable,...

We have been lucky enough to stay at Sun Cottage twice - one long stay in the Loft Suite and one short stay (too short!) in the River Room - and cannot fault the accommodation, the setting/location, or the welcome. We have recommended to family members, and will definitely be back ourselves.
