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.

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.

I have had the pleasure of staying at this little oasis in the middle of beautiful Newlands during my last two visits to Cape Town and I am already scheduling my next stay. I travel to South Africa regularly to undertake research and Sun Cottage meets my needs on every count. Peaceful location, within walking distance to shops, clean spacious... More

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.

We had a fantastic stay at Sun Cottage. It is a home away from home, beautifully located and within reach of most of the Cape Town's attraction. The Loft room is spacious, cozy and just unfaultable. It overlooks a small stream which is very calming and quiet giving one a piece of mind. Excellent for business or couple. The owner,... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this guesthouse. The surrounding was peaceful with a tinkling stream outside and the white decor of the room inside added to create a sense of serenity and stillness. The room was immaculate and there has such an attention to detail to make a guest feel comfortable. I was attending a conference and found the... More
