Great food and really kind, helpful staff...loved staying there! The only thing i would have liked was a kettle in the room, otherwise, great! Really feels like home and very close to Kuils River Hospital, where I was working.

The food is poor, and parking is non-existent. You have to spend 30 minutes each morning looking for the person who parked behind you so that you can leave. I will not be seen anywhere near this place again.

The service we received was excellent. Starting from the welcoming by the staff. They were very friendly and helpful. The area is nice and quiet, very suitable for relaxation away from the city center noise. The food was amazing too! I would definitely go back to Sun Bell lodge and also recommend it to others.

I must admit and due to the fact that I'm travelling a lot, I was sceptical when I was told about the price per night. Sun Bell axceeded all expectations. It was my second visit to Sun Bell and will definitely make use of the facility again. Thank you very much. Gavin

Would have liked to have had an external door allowing access to the garden. Initial booking said room 6, but when checked in the room was room 8, which it right at the reception area. Food was good and staff friendly. They also catered for your need on request.

Due to hitting an animal on our trip to Cape Town, we were delayed and unfortunately did not reach Cape Town or make use of the guesthouse. I phone Lionel and explained the situation to him. He was very understanding and sympathetic to our position, and extremely accommodating on the deposit. Lionel came across as a lovely human being with...
