Ovwerall a decent hotel, no question. It should easily have been a 4 star review. The bed was comfortable, the TV worked as did the internet.There was a safe in the room. Great views of the Table Mountain or at least the back of it. Friendly staff and good breakfasts. So what went wrong? The bathroom was a little dated...

Well established business hotel (not a resort facility), good value, excellent service (exceptionally fast by local standards). Location is a function of ones needs and whether you are using a car. Will probably need refurbishing down the line but still high standard.

We've had an outstanding stay for this year's Two Oceans marathon. The location is ideal, of course - a short walk to the starting line. And, like many hotels, Southern Sun had a 4am breakfast for runners. But the details made the trip. From hot chocolate welcoming drinks for the kids to the complimentary rain jacket that snapped to my...

I did a three night business trip here and was amazed at the fantastic attitude and professionalism of every single staff member here. I was made to feel very special and welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast only started at 6.30am and I had to leave at 6am - no problem, they organised a breakfast pack for me....

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
