Good hotel, very clean and very comfortable beds. Good location also and the shuttle to the waterfront every half an hour is very handy. Wifi is limited to only 500 mb/day which goes very quickly, I think they can improve this with unlimited wifi. Otherwise, our stay at this hotel was very pleasant.

This is a pleasant hotel, with friendly staff and an exceptional buffet breakfast. However, if you're expecting to be on the ocean or even across the road from it, you're going to be sorely disappointed. On the plus side, there is a free shuttle to the V+A Waterfront, the tourist/arts area that IS actually on the water, in an old...

Stayed 2 nights at the Sun Waterfront hotel in Cape Town. Beautiful hotel close to many great amenities in Cape Town. Rooms were up scale, spacious and clean. Meals were very good with lots of choice. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.

After 15+ hours of flying it was nice to arrive at this hotel! Check-in was easy and they made every attempt to get us into our room quickly and across the hall from our friends we were traveling with. Free shuttle service to and from the V & A Waterfront made it easy to get to and very convenient. The...

This hotel is on a great location. With Uber and other taxis available on your call the hotel is within 5 minutes drive from the Waterfront, Green Point, De Waterkant and the City Centre. The CTICC is simply a walk away. True to the Tsogo Sun tradition all the hotel staff is courteous, and delivers outstanding service. As a traveller...

As with all African destinations I have traveled to the staff are very warm, friendly and welcoming. Check in was quick and easy. Entering the room was a bit underwhelming as it seemed very dated and claustrophobic. Two large beds in a small room which made it difficult to move around and with a TV screen that seemed smaller than...

I'm currently staying at this hotel and so far I have not been impressed with the service. We had dinner at the hotel and the waitress walked passed us twice so after waiting awhile I asked the bartender were we sitting in a bad place because no one would help us, he then called someone to wait on us. Secondly,...

The hotel and location was good. The food was good. I didn't have supper only breakfast However the room was really bad, especially the smoke smell. I hardly slept for the two nights that I spent at your hotel.

Comfortable and spacious room with all of the necessary. Breakfast was good. Staff are helpful and attentive. A special word for the ladies in the breakfast hall. Only thing I would change is the amount of tea, sugar and milk in the room (but this goes for all hotels.) As much as I appreciate your concern for my health, 2...
