Travellers' Choice
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.

Please invest on proper shower barication instead of plastic curtain, it doesn't protect the water from spilling on the floor. The plastic shower let the water pass through causing a lot of mess in the bathroom.

The stay was pleasant. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was not so much variety in terms of food choices for both breakfast & dinner, however, what was available was palatable and fresh.

I have been staying at the Southern Sun Newlands Hotel for quite a few times. I always return because of the excellent service that we have received every time that we have stayed here. Staff (from reception to the cleaners, everyone are hospitable, helpful and friendly. The breakfast is also one of the high lights. The location of the hotel is great, it is central, has a beautiful view of the mountains. It is also situated right next to the Newlands rugby stadion, Continue with your excellent work and efforts to contribute to improve the economy of South Africa.

The service is good in general. Personnel and the environment was good in all aspects during the short weekend stay. Quite ideal and near most shops and a mall. Would recommend my people to stay there.

As a 4 star hotel i would have preferred to have a shower only in my room instead of standing a bath with a shower curtain. I am not sure if the Newlands Sun do have rooms with shower only instead of a bath. Maybe they can also label the some of the breakfast items as Halaal "friendly" if that is the term they want use. This will give the Muslim guest the peace of mind when having breakfast.

Thank you for your custom and for your feedback pertaining to Southern Sun Newlands. Please could you forward us your full name and surname so that we may update your profile pertaining to your preference regarding a walk in shower - we do have these available. Since we are not certified Halaal we shall not advertise items as "Halaal Friendly" - we do however purchase our meat from a Halaal Certified butcher, bearing in mind that we do serve bacon and pork sausage on our buffet. Going forward if you could mail us prior to your stay we could order in a Halaal meal for you from a certified Halaal supplier, which would be at your own cost. In addition we have various cold meats on the buffet as well as fish that you may consume, however our Chefs would be pleased to assist you on the day with any further clarification if needed. I do hope that the above has helped. Kind Regards Nabila Cassim General Manager
