The hotel is very clean, I do feel that they are not concerned enough about the environment though as even though they have a pamphlet indicating the water restrictions my towel is replaced everyday, my kettle water thrown out. Otherwise the breakfast buffet is really good. The staff is super friendly. It is very central, close to loop and Bree...

Stayed at this hotel a few times and each time was amazing. Great location with great views. The hotel is even better now with parking under the building. Staff are friendly and welcoming, with a scrumptious breakfast.

I still stand by my earlier comments that I enjoyed my stay at the Southern Sun Cape Sun Hotel for the International Conference under the auspices of The International IDEA and African Capacity Building Foundation. I will always recommend it to my associates.

I loved riding in the glass elevator with a view of Table Mountain. The restaurant was excellent with an amazing array of choices at both the breakfast and dinner buffets. We enjoyed a...
