We were not happy with our room. Poor maintenance with regard to plumbing . Water leaks onto floor in bathroom. Requested high floor with harbour view more than 3 months in advance but this was overlooked by hotel. Manager was unable to assist as hotel was fully booked

My wife and I stayed one night at the hotel before departing on a tour of the Garden Route. When we arrived at our allocated room it smelt of smoke and was clearly a smoking room - but we had been asked at reception whether we wanted a smoking or non smoking room - poor for an international hotel group....

Excellent service and at a convenient location on the city. It must be noted that parking is not free and it was a surprise on checking in. The breakfast although good was of a limited variety and becomes boring after a few days

The Cape Sun used to be a flagship five star hotel in Cape Town ... it dropped some stars and standards but is slowly regrouping itself to being a top Mother City hotel. My stay was very pleasant, the staff most curtious and the presence of Management evident. We had a Birthday celebration and the hotel went out of their...

This hotel is an older girl. You can see her beauty, but also see how the years have worn on her. The hotel is obviously an older hotel that at one time was probably the gem of Cape Town, but the years service have started to show. The hotel was clean and the room was comfortable. There was an issue...

Would recommend the hotel , was a value for money experience . The elevators have a beatifiull view all the way up to the 32 floor. The pool was very disappointing and small for a holiday destination and is situated within the spa which is very inconvenient. On the whole it was a value for money experience as I booked...

Good location, however I'd say the value for money is relatively low. Perhaps the high season but I'd stay at a different hotel for the same rate per night. Great service (drinks at the check-in counter and help w/ luggages). Elevators (lifts) take forever as though only 2 out of 6 are working. No direct access to parking which is...
