VIP Treatment - Southern Sun Newlands
Had a wonderful short stay here, staff very friendly and went the extra mile in terms of accommodating our request regarding the check-out time. Food was great and the rooms are spacious and very clean. Will certainly be staying here each time I visit Cape Town. Oh, the prices are very reasonable for the VIP treatment they offer.
