I spend last weekend in Cape town, SA, booked at Southern Sun Cape Sun Hotel , Strand St. And what was to be a great weekend get away, turned real nasty Sunday morning. An hour before my check out, I go down fior a quick breakfast, everything pakaged, ready to go in my room. I return 45 min later only to find some one has locked themselves into my room stolen my laptop and some money out of my travel purse (only the big notes), but left my passport. I call for security, still little in chock that this has happend. They appear fairly fast, but after a quick run trough of what was taken , they seem more anciuos to get me to check out and of to the airport. I ask if this will be raported to the police, but dont get an answer only that they will investigate. I mention that they can check the log of which keycard was used to enter my room. They acknowledge this, with another they will investigate. Clearly this was arrange by someone within the hotel, timing was perfect, hotel had my travel details and knew that I had to be in the airport that morning or miss my flight. I have since tried to follow up via mail and phone, who ever i speak to just tells me this is still under investigation and they will get back to me. The Manager is not available... Hopefully this, with this bad review, will wake someone within the Sun Group and see to it that their employee`s don't systematic steals from their guests ! MY Recommedation Dont stay at this Hotel, if you want to keep you belongings !

It’s a wonderful hotel. Breakfast goodies are limited though , simply because I love nuts. Breakfast is not different from any regular hotel, but considering that it is well located and in CapeTown, I expected more. The room is great and big. Very tidy , however they can add morning sleepers and gown 🤦🏾‍♀️. The service however is absolutely tops. Staff are amazing. From reception to all other areas. Of course this is Cape Town. They understand how to get customers coming back. I recommend the hotel but because it’s a business trip , I did not book myself so I can’t comment about value for money.
