Excellent service. Hospitality redefined. E enjoyed the service and I will definitely visit again. Only improve your dinner, do not keep the guests waiting while you are preparing for supper. Otherwise I love your service

Our two night stay at the Newlands Sun was fantastic. Staff were great in all departments and everything was spotless and I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Beds soooo comfortable. Location very central to Cavendish.

Friendliness, made me feel at home. Cleanliness was of a high standard. The area was great and I enjoyed the free vouchers that I got to visit the Sport Science Gym. I enjoyed the coffee and plunger in my room.

My family appreciate the service we received from this hotel. It was an excellent one, the staff were wonderful and the breakfast is incomparable to any other. From the first day to the last day of our stay, we never have any reason to feel negative about this hotel. The staff are from another planet in good service.

Never disapointed at this hotel. The service is on point, breakfast is a real treat and the rooms are really clean. The upgrade to the rooms, carpets and decor that was done a few years ago, looks modern and stylish. Always happy to come back to this hotel.

The Newlands Sun is located near the Newlands Cricket and Rugby stadiums, and mountain facing rooms have a beautiful view of Devil's Peak. The hotel seems to have been recently modernised, which has been done very well - the decoration is modern with good choice of colour schemes and the overall effect is a simple, clean and modern design with some character. We had a "triple" room which (for two adults and a child of 8), which effectively meant two (small) double beds in a somewhat small floor area, and the bathroom is quite small, but we did not spend much time in the room, so the lack of space was not really an issue. Practically, the size of the double bed is a bit on the small side for two adults (but our daughter was very happy with a double bed to herself!). The room was clean and well serviced by housekeeping. The only reservation I have about the room is the window, which is an aluminium sliding type where unfortunately it doesn't quite seal on both sides when closed (it seals either on one side or the other), and this lets noise in from the main road and also there seem to be a lot of trucks coming and going from (I assume) the brewery opposite. Also, I would question the insulating properties of the window - not a problem for us in early May as it was not too hot, but in summer with the full force of the sun, the shade film applied with the single glazing would not be enough, in my option, which would necessitate using the air-conditioning all night (which is efficient, but noisy for night-time use). Aside from these points, overall we found the hotel a very pleasant place to stay. The staff are extremely kind and attentive to children, and extremely helpful. The food in the restaurant (we only tried Newlands Cafe) is simple, but extremely well cooked to the point that it tastes home made. The children's menu, in particular is very well done, not too salty and very tasty. The speed of service in the restaurant is quite leisurely in terms of the time it takes from order to food on table, but this is not a problem unless you need to get your tired child to bed... Overall, a very good 3-star hotel, and excellent value for money

Room Tip: For a family it may be worth considering a suite (or at least a bigger room than the standard size)
