My wife and I traveled to Cape Town on business and stayed at the Southern Sun. From the moment we arrived until the time we left we were given personal, sincere attention. They did a great job of recommending attractions and helping us get the most out of our time there. Hotel is wonderfully decorated and the food is delicious....

All the hotels can go and learn how excellent service should be done. Excellent not good enough for them there should be 5 more stars to do justice to all the staff. Even the porters know what good service mean. Thank you wish I can return again

Having stayed in 5 star establishments in the Cape Town area, I was skeptical about booking at the Southern Sun Newlands, however, that was certainly put to rest.

Southern Sun is my second home. I enjoyed staying here except that I was promised coffee which never came. I enjoyed especially how I was helped with my luggage to and from my room. Also the care that I received in the restaurant was superb.

I stayed at this property mid November and overall had a very pleasant stay. While it would have been nice to stay more downtown (closer to the Waterfront), I am certain the cost would have been much higher. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating. The rooms were nice, nothing too fancy but met my needs. The restaurant offered a...

At the end of my stay at this very good hotel I got food poisoning at a Cape Town restaurant. The manager was kind enough to arrange a VERY late check out and I was grateful.

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
