My Daughter and I had a very good stay at Southern Cross Guest House and the rooms were very comfortable and clean and Marc and Claudia were very accommodating. The only thing that really needs some attention is that due to the weather being so hot in summer there needs to be an air conditioner or at the very least... More

My girfriend and I stayed in Southern Cross Guesthouse for 2 nights. We experienced helpfulness of the owners and easy and user-friendly instructions on basic stuff (operating the remote controlled gate, facilities around etc.). We felt very trusted, which is precious. The facility itself is comfortably equipped with super bed, spacious bathroom, nice veranda, clean swimming pool, comfy facilities around... More

We stayed here two weeks in total and have already booked to go back. The hosts, Marc and Claudia are really attentive and caring. They notice your small preferences and quietly deliver to meet your needs. Breakfasts are fantastic and a combination of European and English so there is something for everyone. Rooms are large, beautifully appointed and the cleaning... More

Our room was spacious and clean with a very comfortable bed with lovely, soft sheets. We loved the view from the sun deck in the garden - a... More

The location in Somerset West makes the Southern Cross Guesthouse an almost ideal place to discover Cape Town, the Winelands and also a day trip to Hermanus is no problem. For those who are golfing: There are a number of good courses not far from there. The majority of the guests were from Germany. The guesthouse is located in a... More

The place is situated in a suburb of Cape Town, so it is close enough but far enough away from the city bustle. The rooms were very spacey as advertised, clean and neat. The hosts were extremely nice, helped when asked, but also allowed you your space. The cleaning lady does not speak English, so leaving instructions with her is... More
