Due to good experiences made earlier I booked the Cullinan again. Ok, one can say it is a big meeting hotel, ideal for conferences and thus not that romantic piece of the Southern Africa. But then the one who looks for the aforesaid should not go there, obviously. What you'll find is friendly and competent staff, clean rooms, great breakfast...

We are fans of The Southern Sun Group, but this was our first time at the Cullinan. For us, location was important. We needed to be within close proximity of the Greenpoint Stadium, the V&A Waterfront and the Seapoint area. Check in was efficient. The hotel is beautifully decorated. There's a bar downstairs that overlooks the pool. The rooms are...

Friendly staff greetings when we arrived and check in was seamless. My room had everything one needed for a one night stay and was very comfortable. The Breakfast provided a mouth watering variety that made you want to go back for more. Thank you Gary and team.

Some things I'm beginning to rely on in life and one of them is my destination in Cape Town - the Cullinan. After a couple of years away we went back in February, some redecorations, some menu changes, some systems changed - but still high quality, excellent personnel and a beautiful position.

The hotel has a good location near the harbour and city bus tour. The rooms are clean, food is okay, bar is great but elevators are quite slow. Staff service is okay but I guess like any hotel in cape town be aware of your valuables and never leave them outside hotel safe or front desk.

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. However, standards appear to be slipping and this year breakfast service was very second rate.This was particularly noticeable on the sunday morning when there were...

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.
