We recently stayed at Southern Sun Newlands and were very happy with our stay. Travelling with a baby is never easy but the entire staff made it a breeze, always alert to our needs. The food was great, the service was excellent and staff was friendly and warm. We highly recommend a stay there and will definitely be back ourselves.

I have previously written a review on SS Newlands. Nothing has changed in a good way. As you can see from most of the reviews, everyone raves about the staff being exceptionally polite, kind and friendly.

The Newlands Sun is terrific value for money. The rooms are capacious and clean, the hotel is in a great location, the breakfast is sumptuous and, perhaps most importantly, the staff are exceptional. Without a doubt the most friendly and helpful I have encountered in South Africa.

Modern block in reasonable suburban location. No outside chairs and tables. Gym (unused). Fairly bland place with dark rooms. Breakfast buffet superb. Indian restaurant part of hotel serving adequate sub-continent dishes at low prices (by U.K. standards). Didn't sample other fare. Staff and service excellent by any standards. Just wish it had bigger grounds and not hemmed in by other...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For travellers that prefer to be outside the city centre, the Southern Sun Newlands is the perfect choice in Cape Town. Situated in this leafy garden suburb the hotel is close to the city and its many attractions, but quiet enough for a restful night’s sleep. The decor of the hotel is truly African and luxurious and its proximity to both the Newlands cricket and rugby stadiums is a bonus for many visitors. ... more   less
