Having stayed at the Cullinan Hotel previously about 8 years ago, i decided to book a 3-night stay at the hotel again for my family vacation. Cape Town has become such a popular tourist destination these days, and there are a large variety of hotels in the city now. The Cullinan is in an excellent location, directly opposite the Westin Hotel and Cape Town convention centre. The hotel is also flanked by the Southern Sun Waterfront hotel, which belongs to the same hotel group, Tsogo Sun.
I managed to get an excellent rate online, and one thing i must commend Tsogo Sun on is that they allow you to book for 2 Adults and 2 Kids on their website, unlike most other hotels in the world which will tell you there are no rooms available if you indicate you are traveling with 2 kids. This immediately tells you that the Cullinan is a family-friendly hotel.
The room allocated to me had 2 double beds and had ample space for 2 adults and 2 kids sharing. The bathroom is quite small however it had a bath tub, shower and all the other amenities that are required. The hotel parking must be one of the most convenient in Cape Town, as you can bypass the foyer from the parking lot and go straight to your room by taking the lift.
The breakfast spread was decent enough for the rate that was charged, and all the standard breakfast fare was catered for.
If you are looking for over the top luxury and seclusion, the Cullinan is probably not for you. However, if you are looking for a value for money, family-friendly and unpretentious base for your Cape Town vacation in an excellent location, you will not go wrong by booking at The Cullinan.
