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 ;-)

This is a lovely hotel with the best shower head in the world- small things! Lovely place, well looked after, very clean. The owner picked me up at the airport and was very helpful throughout my stay. It takes around 40 mins to walk to the V @A waterfront but its a nice enough walk. I felt safe the whole... More

We stayed at Southern Comfort Guest Lodge as our final destination of our family's adventure on our driving journey across southern Africa before returning to Australia. We cannot rate the accommodation highly enough. We were thoroughly spoilt by Lindiwe's breakfasts each morning and Lourens took time to ensure we knew the best places to go to dine and see the...
