Travellers' Choice
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.

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.

I had a truly fantastic stay at Southern Cross Guesthouse. From the time of my booking to checking out everything ran smoothly. The hosts were perfect and the breakfast was fantastic. My room was beautiful and they even took the trouble to give me a solar light when load shedding struck. I will definitely be back. Furthermore the hosts took the trouble to let me know that I had left some items in the room and sent it through to me. I greatly appreciate this.

Our hosts, Marc and Claudia, were welcoming and accommodating, and the location was quiet and restful. The suite provided plenty of space and a great atmosphere. I'd definitely recommend this location to anyone who's looking to spend some time in Cape Town, but wanting to avoid the bustle of the city.
