A group of us visited Southern Comfort to take part in the CaPE Argus cycling tour. First off the house and rooms have been well renovated and are comfortable and the location was central and ideal given we had a car. They kindly allowed us to park our trailer inside the gate for security. The hospitality shown by the owners... More

Great shower, very nicely appointed bathroom, good toiletries (especially the moisturizer) and soft absorbent bath towels. Convenient location. Rooftop lounge with perfect view of Table Mountain. The hosts were very friendly and answered any and all questions we had in a... More

We have spent 5 nights at Southern Comfort Guest Lodge and would come immediately. We can highly recommend a stay in this guesthouse. The location at the foot of Table Mountain is ideal for excursions to Table Mountain, Camps Bay or downtown Cape Town. The rooms are great, very clean and good and fast internet connection. All other facilities like... More

I used this b&b for the second time over the past 12 months. The experience remained the same. Luxury accommodation, friendly owners (always willing to advise and help out, while remaining discrete), well organized and of course the great location between table mountain and the gardens. The owners were also willing to accommodate last minute changes to my travel plans,... More

When we stayed at Southern Comfort in February 2014 we had a wonderful week, There were just a couple of things which could have improved the experience and we are delighted to report that owner Hans has just emailed us to say that they have taken up our suggestion! Our 'problem' was that the shower room and toilet were a... More

My flight delayed out of J'burg, I didn't arrive at the guesthouse until after 12:30 a.m. and had no cell phone service to phone my friend as all of the sim card merchants at the Cape Town airport were closed. I rang the bell at the gate a number of times before the manager finally responded and then scolded me... More

This is a beautifully-run guesthouse in a convenient and quiet part of Cape Town. The facilities are very modern and well-kept and the owners take a great deal of trouble to make one feel welcome. It's possible to walk to some of the main attractions of this wonderful city.

Southern Comfort is just that - clean, comfortable, hospitable, convenient accommodation. Really this is a 'boutique hotel' in standards. Everything you need is here from pool to internet. Our hosts were really helpful, organised a great breakfast every day and even drove us up to Table Mountain themselves when our taxi didn't turn up - thank you! Its a pleasant... More

New, clean, large rooms, luxurious and located in a great area of Cape Town. Moreover, the owners are always willing to provide useful advice. The driver organizes great transfers and tours at affordable prices. I only fear it might be fully booked next time I want to go ;-)
