A great accommodation in a superb surrounding. Great service and wonderful people, who fulfilled my wishes before I asked. The room was huge with a bathroom one could get lost. The garden lush and colorful and the pool a very soothing place to be.

I arrived very early to check in and Marina was there to great me and provide a key for later that day. This was above and beyond and really made my stay enjoyable. Although hard to find in a taxi this is a perfect location set deep into the tranquil surroundings of Constantia. Ideal place for the Newlands cricket ground... More

We enjoyed our stay during Christmas. Thanks a lot for everything. Especally the warm welcome and the special breakfast at Christmas. It is a perfect place to visit all the different wineyards nearby. Thanks a lot 😊

The Southern Light guesthouse staff were very welcoming, polite and helpful throughout my five day visit. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the garden is delightful with many beautiful roses. The pool area is very pretty with trees around it to set it apart from the main house. Staff served a delicious breakfast. The guesthouse is not really within... More

If you are looking for a lovely guest house in this area, look no further. Marina the manageress is exceptional - she takes such good care of her guests that I thought she had to be the owner. Nothing is too much trouble for her. Our well travelled grandchildren (8 and 10) were made to feel at home. The breakfast... More

Great location with stunning view. Beautiful garden. Executive room large, clean & quiet. Breakfast : very good choice for both continental & cooked offered Guest relations badly needs improvement, only spend 3 nights during which there were quite a few issues, which could have easily avoided if there was a bit more professionalism in the running of the guest house....

My stay was great. The Manager was very accommodating and made sure my needs were met. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. The location was quiet and very secure and very convenient to my travels around Cape Town. The breakfasts were superbly prepared. I couldn't have asked for a better stay!

This house is located in a lovely private location and we were given a beautiful spacious room that looked over the garden. We had a few issues though; firstly there was not enough hot water for everyone to take showers and baths at similar times (which is difficult if you are part of a tour group as these times are...

My colleagues and I were in town (on business) for just a day and needed a place to stay. Southern Light came highly recommended by our hosts, so we decided to try it out. I believe it was worth it! We were blown away by the tastefully decorated rooms, the food and the country house's grounds. I hope to come... More
