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!

We won this voucher on an auction and sooo glad we got to use it. We felt extremely welcome and the attitude very positive and relaxed. The room spaciously included a lounge and dressing room area. 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

Thank your for your review. The only thing unclear for us is the relevance of the property being sold. Accommodation establishments are being sold all the time and guests are not even aware of it. 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

If you don't want to be in the centre of Cape Town for your holiday/stay then choose Southern Light. Set in a lovely, wooded suburb close to Constantia, our room was excellent and had its own verandah that overlooked the most beautiful garden. There is an excellent swimming pool as well as a tennis court for the more energetic. Maxi... More

A beautiful location, rooms lovely and I adored the friendly felines. However, I felt the management was a little too "hands-off". We were met by the cleaning lady, not even greeted properly by the manager the next morning and basically had to find out own way around. We were promised a food pack as we left before breakfast, but none... More

Dear Janet Thank you for your review. We are sad to hear that you did not feel attendant sufficiently. Unfortunately Management has to sometimes leave the house to do the shopping.

We had a wonderful weeks stay. It was perfect for our 2 children - beautiful big garden with a play area and a stunning pool. The rooms are clean and spacious. The area Constantia is stunning and away from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town city centre - perfect location to base yourself for exploring the CT & surrounds.... More

We got an warm welcome and we had a unforgetable time in this beautiful and peaceful place. We love this place and we like everything from the hosts, the employees and the lovely animals. It was our second time in Southern Light and we know, we come back. It's highly recommended. Claus B.

Welcome fruit not adequate. Cats in the room. Breakfast was excellent. Breakfast staff also excellent. Hand wash soap was empty on the first day and not filled even on the second day. More was expected from a four star establishment

Thank you for the review. We are very sorry for the soap, we ran out and the suppliers are still closed. We are trying to keep the cat out, we already put Plexiglass strips on the windows but she keeps finding a way in. We really sorry for the inconvenience, we hope she was not too annoying.
