Excellent Hotel accommodation with pleasant staff. The dinner buffet food was just basic, however, breakfast was on point. Rooms were cleaned everyday. The hotel must refurbish its bathrooms, they are outdated.

the standard of food should be improved a bit especially on the dinner, there was no fish on offer and one expects to have a variety of meats when having a buffet and the quality of juices also needs to be of a higher standard.

Thanks for the hospitality shown towards me during my say at Southern Sun Cape Sun. I prefer the Hotel due to is proximity to Parliament. I love the bar area and the ground floor where you can relax with a glass of wine.
