From the moment you step over the threshold of Southern Light Guest House you are greeted with a warm, homely and comforting ambience. I was booked to stay for 10 days and ended up staying 21 days, and that says it all. Maxi and her staff worked tirelessly to make my stay pleasant and nothing was too much trouble for... More

The Country house is set at a beautiful venue. I was cold the whole night because the bed doesn't have a duvet big enough for the bed. The bedding needs to be replaced and be suitable for the bed in the room. The breakfast should also be a full buffet like most other places of a similar stature, the ladies... More

We stayed here during Two Oceans 2014. Situated close to the start, and also close to a scenic part of the route, which suited us very nicely. Clean and comfortable facilities, friendly staff, great omelette for breakfast! Conveniently located for a visit to Kirstenbosch, Newlands Rugby stadium, Cavendish Square and also Constantia villiage shopping centre. Lovely patio overlooking the gardens... More

Host was amazing staff were wonderful and the overall stay was amazing. The rooms are beautiful and so are the grounds and the facilities. I would recommend this Country House to anyone who would love a sun filled and pleasant stay in Cape Town.

This was my first stay at Southern Light and I was very pleased. Maxi, the proprietor, was always at the ready to attend to my every request. My breakfasts, prepared daily by Florence, were always to my liking. The peaceful surroundings were very restful and the room was comfortable and clean. Very happy with the entire experience!

Everything was neat and extremely comfortable with every convenience. The gardens are beautiful, peaceful and quiet, it must be a beautiful stay during the... More

The property is in a good position in Constantia. However the property is being sold and the grounds and outside areas were starting to look tired and in need of tidying up. Our room was large and comfortable but then for the price you would expect it to be. The breakfast was satisfactory but no pastries or croissants only bread.... More

You would not been aware of it if it hadn’t been advertised. We are always complemented about the perfect condition of the property and how... More
