We have stayed at this 5 star hotel on a number of occasions and for location on the edge of the city and within walking distance of the Waterfront it is still hard to beat.

Wonderful oasis in central Cape Town. Lovely rooms with all the creature comforts. Complementary sweets, nuts and wine were a nice surprise and much appreciated. Beds very comfortable. Looking forward to our next visit.

I feel for the price and the fact that it is a big group one should not arrive to a room with no water and a airconditioner that does not work. Water was however given quickly and maintenance did fix aircon. Surely there should be a checklist done before a guest checks in! I was in room 807.

The hands on management and attention to detail reflects through on each and every aspect of this hotel. An outstanding, professional and courteous experience from the moment I stepped through the door. Well done to Garry and the team - do yourself a favour and stay there - believe me you won't be disappointed!

I really enjoyed the food at this hotel. Dinner simply delicious! I could hardly walk afterwards. Breakfast was yummy as well. They surely know how to cook here. I will be back for the delicious food.

The Cullinan's staff were exceptional, this is the first time I've hosted a conference where every single staff member I came into contact with were friendly and provided outstanding service. I would definitely recommend The Cullinan as a conference venue.

We have stayed here regularly and we really enjoy coming back again and again. The beds are comfortable and the towels and room facilities just what we needed. The cupboards could be a little bigger and a balcony would be nice BUT the fabulous pool area and the stunning breakfasts make the stay worthwhile! Free wifi works well. Staff very...

The food was to scrumptious, mouth-watering everything your taste buds could desire....we paid R520.00 per couple and this included a rose and welcoming glass of bubbles on arrival. At the table we received a complimentary bottle of Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel (one...
