Our stay at Southern Cross was great. The hosts were very warm and welcoming and displayed great hospitality. Breakfast was good and the honesty bar is a fantastic idea for the late night snacks. The guest house is located in a very peaceful and serene area and is just the location for a relaxing break or even just a place... More

Everyone very helpful & friendly. Breakfast was spot on & room was comfortable & clean. Only thing I could pick on is that the hot shower was only just luke warm. Pretty location & an easy drive to Cape Town. Solo female traveller & felt very safe here. Very pleased.

I would recommend southern cross to anyone. My only issue was that there was no hot water for me to shower. Other than that, the place is devine and worth visiting. The security is top noch and the food is best, with a variety to choose from.

I finally got hold of Marc the guest house owner after googling the property and finding Marc's mobile number. He who told me they closed at 6PM. This was... More

Dear Jacky, Thank you very much for your nice review. It was great to have you as our guest. We apologize again for not being at the guesthouse when you booked later in the evening (shortly before 8:00 p.m.) and showed up at the gate just a few minutes later. As we do not have a 24/7 reception like a... More

We were very disappointed with this place. My husband accidentally booked the "economy" Cheetah Room instead of the normal standard of accommodation we like. We were first made aware of this no more than a minute after arriving when our hosts informed us that we had booked their "economy" room. I must admit I found this to be quite rude... More

Myself and my bridesmaids prepared for my wedding in the Africa room! And what a great experience! The room was spacious enough for 4 girls to get ready without getting in each others way! I felt well rested and the calmness of the guesthouse definitely contributed to a stress free day on my big day! Both Claudia & Marc assisted... More
