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.

The amazing team at Southern Sun Newlands made the 4 weeks of business in Cape Town a pleasure. Always taking the time to give us the personal treatment, we could not have asked for a better home-away-from-home. The food was delicious and the attention to detail all round was meticulous. The rooms are well apportioned for the price point and the breakfast is everything you could hope for. The pool table in the conference area combined with the bar made downtime entertaining and provides a chance to really unwind after a long day without having to go out. I would thoroughly recommend Southern Sun Newlands to anybody looking for a base of operations for a Cape Town visit.

It was really like coming home after such a long time! And it always feels like you visit Hazel at her own home. She is as concern about your well-being as if you are visiting at her house. Kudus to her and the whole team.

Great service from the front-of-house team, Hazel being the star of the show. My outgoing flight was later on in the evening - requested for a late checkout and it was handled with top tier professionalism.
