Also the most incredible value for money!! Can't actually understand how it can be so reasonably priced for such an outstanding hotel - it has everything you look for in a hotel costing 2-3 times as much - immaculate white cotton bedding on supremely comfortable beds (and a twin room has 2 DOUBLE beds - not singles), in-room WI-FI, superb...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For travellers that prefer to be outside the city centre, the Southern Sun Newlands is the perfect choice in Cape Town. Situated in this leafy garden suburb the hotel is close to the city and its many attractions, but quiet enough for a restful night’s sleep. The decor of the hotel is truly African and luxurious and its proximity to both the Newlands cricket and rugby stadiums is a bonus for many visitors. ... more   less
