Excellent value for money, staff anticipating customer's needs. The only issue was that they don't have enough rooms for smokers! Otherwise I can definitely recommend The Souther Sun Cullinan, whether for business or pleasure!

1. well positioned near the freeway 2. next to CTICC, if you attending conference 3. Opposite the Victoria & Alfred Water Front, lots of things can be done there, including meals. I went down to Cape Town for Comrades Marathon. So I was looking for a budget hotel, and not a 5-Star. Tsogo Suns and Comrades had a 3 day...

Although the building doesn't look as flash from the outside, the hotel has everything to offer and rooms are good. Breakfast is good, staff very quick and efficient. The private parking underneath is a great plus for self drive travellers.

Hotel has a very convenient location some 10-15 walk to the Waterfront. Rooms are modern with reasonably fast wifi. Some rooms have a nice view. I liked the breakfasts and bar area. The service was slow but in the end staff friendly and you get what you ask for. It is one of best places with a good value-for-money for...

Visited this hotel as part of our travels in SA, found the hotel to be centrally located (15 mins walk or a shuttle bus to the Waterfront) and a 10 minute walk to Long Street. The rooms are a good size and very clean. We ate once in the bar and found the food to be very nice and the...

Only downside is that rooms have "thin" walls so noise of...

We were a bit nervous about staying here because it has such mixed reviews. Having spent 4 mpnights there I can see why. Great location only a 10 min walk to waterfront. Very grand entrance and reception, but reception staff are very slow and took ages to check in. Rooms were a little disappointing after seeing the entrance. They are...

The reception was very friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed my stay at the hotel and would not mind to revisit very soon. My family love this hotel and cannot stop talking about it, especially their experience during this easter weekend.

The Cullinan is a great hotel in the Waterfront area. It is an easy 15 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf. The breakfast at the hotel was great with a ton of variety. The gym was really small; it is effectively a room with some treadmills/bikes/ellipticals. There are limited selection of free weights. Lastly, the wifi was limited to 500MB. As...
