The overall experience is always interesting, the staff is always efficient and helpful, my most exciting feel is the shuttle bus to water front for shopping and dining. looking forward to my next trip.

Generally good stay except my point raised regarding the presence of a VIP and the bodyguards. At least someone from the hotel should have notified me about this development and move me to another room away from the VIP.

We were recently on a Regent cruise and at the end of the cruise, they arranged for most of the people on the boat to stay at The Cullinan. If you can imagine over 300 people checking in at one time into a hotel, you can visualize the potential mess. We were all handled very quickly and efficiently and our... More

The staff are lovely, good facilities, nice pool area and good light bites menu. It felt more like a conference facility than a holiday stop but having said that, the pool is lovely and there are nice loungers. A little further out than the 'waterfront' address suggests.

We stayed here for 4 nights in November and the hotel was lovely. I was a bit disappointed that the hotel was not on the waterfront as it said in the description, but the hotel did supply a transfer bus to and from the waterfront every day. We were on a bed and breakfast package and I must say the... More

The room was clean and the linen fresh. The staff were very courteous and never lingered around for tips. I had to chase after them each time. The breakfast was really nice - so much to choose from. The bar was great in the evenings. The entrance lobby could do with a bit of colour and flash, but all told... More

Fantastic hotel, perfectly situated for business (travel against traffic) and leisure to launch exploration of the beauties of CT. The rooms are well appointed and the linen and beds are superb. I don't know how they make them so comfortable. The staff friendliness and attention to detail is more than world class, a truly warm South African excperince.

This is a large hotel on the edge of the CBD in Cape Town. Used for conferences, large tour groups etc. Check in was rather slow. Room very comfortable and of a good size. Comfortable bed. Breakfast choice, buffet style, was excellent but we had to queue over 20 minutes to enter the dining room. Whilst I understand that the... More
