My husband, daughter and I only spent one night but have a wonderful stay. The room was lovely and clean and Claudia and Marc went out of their way to accommodate us with another bed in our room. The gardens are lovely and well kept and the pool was very inviting. We had a lovely stay and will definitely stay... More

We stayed only one night and had a newly decorated nice room. We have absolutely nothing negativ to say. OK, maybe you could add a make up mirror in the bathroom. A perfect guesthouse at convenient distance from the CPT Airport, wine estates and the beach. Thank you!

In a quiet street, a very modern place in a beautiful garden, with a lot of attention to details in the rooms. Close to the city centre, you will fin easily a plce to Our only comment would be that it is perhaps a bit expensive, with a breakfast which could be more generous. Nice stay anyway.

I stayed at the Southern Cross Guesthouse earlier this week while attending a conference at a nearby facility. I received a warm welcome from the moment I arrived until the moment I left. The facilities were stunning - lovely pool area and a stunning property. It took minutes to get to local restaurants and shops and no request was too... More

As we arrives our host and hostess were waiting for us and came to welcome us at the car. The rooms were spotlessly clean and simply but tastefully furnished. I would stay here again and higly recommend this guesthouse.

The owners are German - Claudia and Marc - and beyond attentive and warm, are extremely careful with every detail. I was there during the course of... More

We stayed for 25 days with Marc, Claudia, Blinkar and Paulie (please excuse if their names aren´t written correctly. It could be our accent!) and it was really enjoyable. We were on a business trip, and it was great to have Marc and Claudia´s kindness and willingness to make us comfortable. The guest house is perfectly located. The rooms are... More
