The Southern Right Hotel is a jovial and light-hearted hotel in Glencairn overlooking Elsie's Bay between the delightful seaside villages of Kalk Bay and Simon's Town. Built in 1904, the hotel was refurbished and restored in 2003 retaining much of its pioneer-day eminence. A large pergola-shaded verandah hovers above the front garden and offers an uninterrupted view of False Bay towards the Hottentots-Holland Mountains 40 kilometres into the distance
Southern Right Hotel has eight rooms with the original wooden floors, thick walls, deep-set windows, high moulded ceilings and splendid mountain or sea views. Interesting and exceptional fine art hangs on the walls of the hotel with African oils, iconic photo essays, Art Deco sculptures and Cape crafts on display.
The Southern Right Hotel has a vibey bar, often featuring live music, and a convivial restaurant and open-air terrace. Both are usually packed with locals – a sure sign of quality and value – and the seaside locale is rightly emphasized with hefty seafood platters and fresh line fish.
