We had a lovely stay from start to finish. Excellent hosts/staff. Great location for visiting Cape Town, especially Table Mountain, which is the backdrop for the Guest Lodge. The rooms are furnished to a high standard and the breakfast is top class. Also something to try is the small cafe just around the corner where you can have a meal... More

Amazing place with clean nice rooms, rain shower, new owners just took over the place, still re-organizing the whole house. Breakfast on demand. Fantastic rooftop terrace overlooking downtown, lion hill & table mountain. Only minus was the very slow WLAN, coming back

A group of us visited Southern Comfort to take part in the CaPE Argus cycling tour. First off the house and rooms have been well renovated and are comfortable and the location was central and ideal given we had a car. They kindly allowed us to park our trailer inside the gate for security. The hospitality shown by the owners... More

Great shower, very nicely appointed bathroom, good toiletries (especially the moisturizer) and soft absorbent bath towels. Convenient location. Rooftop lounge with perfect view of Table Mountain.

We have spent 5 nights at Southern Comfort Guest Lodge and would come immediately. We can highly recommend a stay in this guesthouse. The location at the foot of Table Mountain is ideal for excursions to Table Mountain, Camps Bay or downtown Cape Town. The rooms are great, very clean and good and fast internet connection. All other facilities like... More

I used this b&b for the second time over the past 12 months. The experience remained the same. Luxury accommodation, friendly owners (always willing to advise and help out, while remaining discrete), well organized and of course the great location between table mountain and the gardens. The owners were also willing to accommodate last minute changes to my travel plans,... More

My flight delayed out of J'burg, I didn't arrive at the guesthouse until after 12:30 a.m. and had no cell phone service to phone my friend as all of the sim card merchants at the Cape Town airport were closed.

This is a beautifully-run guesthouse in a convenient and quiet part of Cape Town. The facilities are very modern and well-kept and the owners take a great deal of trouble to make one feel welcome. It's possible to walk to some of the main attractions of this wonderful city.
