Value
Southern Cross Guesthouse is situated in a quiet private residential area on the slops of Somerset West with stunning views of False Bay, mountain ranges and the Atlantic Ocean. Only 30 min. drive from Cape town, close to sandy beaches and in the heart of the Winelands is the guesthouse a perfect gate to all the interesting points of the Western Cape. The Southern Cross offers its guests a choice of 4 Star sea- and garden-view rooms as well as suites, all individually decorated and offering a very modern European standard in their equipment. The surrounding park-like garden is lush and manicured at the same time. Either here or on different sundecks guests can find their individual place for relaxation. A beautiful so called boma offers stunning views to Cape-Point and the possibility of enjoying a bonfire or braai. Southern Cross Guesthouse is the perfect little hide-away out of the city`s buzz but having all that business- or leisure-travelers would need to find in close proximity.

LIEZL D wrote a review May 2022
I will highly recommend Southern Cross Guesthouse. Claudia's friendliness, and willing to help with correcting my booking and adding an extra days stay with efficiency was very much appreciated. My guys were suppose to check out on Friday but due to the work bakkie breaking down, Claudia was able to assist them with an extra nights stay. I had no problem making the first booking as it was done online. The dates captured was incorrect but Claudia was more than willing to help me correct the dates on her side so my guys would have a place to stay.

We had a lovely stay at Southern Cross Guest House. Marc and Claudia's communication before hand was efficient and kind. The location of the guest house is great, close to the winelands, beaches and Cape Town. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed a family braai around the boma, spoilt with a magnificent sunset. Thanks Marc and Claudia for your friendly and efficient service. We highly recommend staying at Southern Cross Guesthouse.

Claudia and Marc of Southern Cross Guesthouse are wonderful hosts and exceeded our expectations with generosity and kindness. We used the guesthouse for our bridal party the weekend of our wedding and Claudia and Marc went out of their way to make sure that we were entirely supported. It provided the perfect spaces for socialising, privacy and comfort. Not to mention, the grounds were beautiful. We highly recommend the guesthouse for any ocassion.

Lovely view, clean and very hospitable hosts. Even went out their way to phone me as my son left his laptop charger in the room. Beautiful setting and exceptionally clean. I wish I had found this gem earlier!!

Was met by the very professional and friendly Marc, who stayed in late to welcome me after my late evening flight. Wonderful room, great nights rest and very welcoming! Was welcomed by a personalized note and a extensive area/ room guide with everything you might need to know.

We would reccomend this guesthouse to everybody : nice and cosy, clean and very friendly owners. The well maintained garden, the entrance to the guesthouse, the pool and relaxing area, the quality of the breakfast, all this is top. The beach , the winelands and the town of Stellenbosch are nearby. So do not hesiate when you are looking for a guesthouse in the area !
