I stayed here for two nights in April 2015. The premises is situated in beautiful surroundings. My room was spacious, the bed comfortable, the bathroom modern, sparkling and clean. The room had a wonderful view of the spectacular garden. Breakfast was good with an adequate selection to choose from. Under the new ownership, it is unlikely that, in the very... More

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.

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
