Marc and Claudia are excellent hosts! The guesthouse are conveniantely and securely situated in Somerset West, with lovely views over False Bay.
The rooms are well presented, with lovely and crisp bedding. What a lovely stay.

Perfect safe location to explore both the vineyards and the superb beach at Strand. We stayed in the Buffalo suite. Very clean, spacious room with a kitchenette and the bonus of a wide, private balcony. New owner Mark is the perfect host. Hot breakfast cooked to order along with a wide variety of fresh, cold buffet items. Also a useful honesty bar! Guest rooms separate from main house so nice and private. Car required giving access to variety of nearby restaurants including the superb 'Stefanies' only a couple of minutes away. Will definately stay again!

Southern Cross is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in. The rooms were clean, spacious, comfortable. The breakfast was first rate. Mark, the new owner, was very friendly and helpful. The only negative point was not close enough to walk to stores or restaurants. You must have a car.

Room Tip: Don't bother with the ocean view. Garden view is much better.

From reviews we were looking forward to our stay. Booked the loft room which looked great. Downstairs wet room smelled; upstairs bedroom dark and unwelcoming! Needs tlc! Gardens beautiful/area very safe.

southerncross2, Owner at Southern Cross Guesthouse, responded to this reviewResponded November 15, 2013

The guests had booked our Africa suite which many of our guests like to book again and again. The suite is under a thatch roof and it is quite normal that this African type of roof has an own smell especially after heavy rainfalls. The roof has been completely restored about 4 weeks ago. We cannot understand the dislike of the guests. Immediately after their arrival we have upgraded them to one of our garden suits. We do not consider this review as fair and it is easy to see that it does not match at all to the other reviews that we are getting in general.

Patricia, the owner is a really nice person. She makes sure you have everthing you need.
The rooms are very spacious, clean and with lovely views. It is perfectly located at 5 mins from the beach and at 10 mins from all the vineyards.
The only little black spot is that there are only 4 tv channels working.


THE ROOMS ARE VER SPACIOUS, CLEAN AND WITH LOVELYS VIEWS.
