We were ending our Cape Holiday at the Southern Light. Wanting to do something different from the oceanic view we usually pick. The website is a complete misrepresentation of the real thing. The management and owners were unprofessional. The place was very noisy. We were treated bluntly by Maxi. She is rude and unprofessional. Breakfast was average, definitely not worth... More

From arrival to departure we were extremely well cared for. the service was fantastic including personal organisation for the Kierstenbosch concert. Food and ambience of the hotel was second to none and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. congratulations and thanks to Marina for a splendid holiday stay.

We holiday in January 2015 with the whole family of 6 adults and 2 children, all our rooms were very spacious and lovely and clean. the property was stunning and big! My daughter had the use of the kitchen in the evening to warm up the children's food. The staff was very friendly and enjoyed the children.

I stayed for 5 nights on a business trip. Table Mountain behind and in the midst of cedar trees this is a veautiful location. The room was cool and very African overlooking a well kept and extensive garden with pool. Very clean and luxourious with a great breakfast in a continental style but with interesting fruits and home made jams.... More

The children just loved the facilities my 5 year old was so comfortable in learning to swim in the big sparkling pool. She could dress up role play and just have fun and this is what children are supposed to do. Rooms were very big so we could have a nice pj's party and movie nigh. Management and staff are... More

The whole experience was awesome - homely, peaceful and absolutely beautiful surroundings, wonderful people, good food.. This is what makes a "home away from home" You will definitely see more of me .

It is definitely not a 4 star rating guesthouse. The animals were lovely, but we did not see any management or owner on site the whole of the weekend. The room was not clean and the quality of the towels were very bad. Florence made us a lovely breakfast.

Beautiful place to stay, very friendly and nice staff. I had very clean and spacious garden room with a comfortable bath room. Only minus is that there a lot of animals in the garden (dog, cat) which does not allow you to open the garden door, otherwise I would have get visiters!! This is pitty.

we did not know exactly what expect - we booked based on the website. what we so loved: the friendliness of the owner and the staff, the new bathroom, and the tidiness all over. the service was great, more than ever expected - and for the first time in over 1,5 years we could enjoy superb german sausages again! wonderful...
