This B&B is more like a hotel! You get the room cleaned during your stay, the towels changed, and even the laundry they do it for you. You have a beautiful view of the city, table mountain, and lion's head. The owner is so fast with responding your messages and everyone is so friendly.

Spotlessly clean, neat, with friendly accommodating staff. Beautiful area with amazing views from the roof top terrace. Near to the town but with the ambiance of being out of the busy town centre. Our room was the size of our lounge in the U.K.! Recommended without hesitation!

Everything was very good! Maya and her Team was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, the bed was very cozy and the view from the roof is awesome. The Guesthouse located perfect. So we could do everything without a taxi.

Again, we thank you Maya and Denise for a wonderful time with you. We appreciated that you stayed up so late until we finally arrived. We find your new chef in the kitchen really good!!! Take care of him, he is great.

We enjoyed our stay at this guest lodge. The owners were very welcoming, the staff was friendly. The views of the table mountain from the rooftop was amazing. The location was also close to the shops.

The guest house beautiful and is situated in a nice part of Cape Town, however the owner of the establishment was rather rude. I stayed at the guest house during load shedding ,because of this situation , the manager I had advised me to use a local deli close by for breakfast and they would pay since my rate included breakfast . Apon arrival at the deli there were no arragements made for me. When I enquired about the breakfast , the owner of the guest house rudely said I should pay for my breakfast because I was on a special rate. I told her that my office had made the bookins and not me . She dismissed me rudely and said she does not care about my bussiness . I found her to be very rude and arrogant . Never coming back there agsin

Beautiful guesthouse, located in a nice neighborhood. Perfect and friendly service and staff. Activities and tours can be arranged and booked directly with the reception. Drop off service, restaurant reservations and recommendations are only a few additional services which are provided. We had a wonderful time and a very pleasant stay.

On our second visit to Cape Town we had no hesitation in booking Southern Comfort again. Everything was the same as last year apart from the addition of the very pleasant and helpful Lance to the management team. It was good to see and chat to Denise. Different bedroom this time but very comfortable and, of course, spotless, as is the whole property. Southern Comfort is not too far away from a good selection of restaurants and bars. The views over the city and up towards Table Mountain are stunning. The neighbourhood felt very safe. We would certainly recommend staying here.

We stayed for few days and nights in Cape Town - the location of Southern Comfort Guest Loge was perfect for strolls into the town, with magnificent views of the Table Mountain from the top terrace. Lance organised for us also delivery of a forgotten item :-) thank you once more! Definitely a recommendation!
