Southern Sun The Cullinan
Ranked #26 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 April 2017 via mobile

The Cullinan is a great hotel in the Waterfront area. It is an easy 15 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf. The breakfast at the hotel was great with a ton of variety. The gym was really small; it is effectively a room with some treadmills/bikes/ellipticals. There are limited selection of free weights. Lastly, the wifi was limited to 500MB. As such, it can't support significant downloads of emails and multiple devices.

Fantastic Ambiance. Added to our holiday experience. Everybody from was so pleasant & accommodating especially the doorman who made sure that he arranged a second shuttle for us because the first one got full. He didn't allow us to wait for the next time slot. Great

This is my second year, staying at this hotel for the Two Oceans marathon. It's the perfect hotel to stay at.
Right across the road and walking distance from the Cape Town waterfront makes it the ideally placed hotel to stay at.
The staff are friendly and eager to assist.
They arrange a transfer to the start line, which is just fantastic and even go to the trouble of giving you their own goodie bag for the race.

The rooms are perfect, the dining is great and this is just a great, we'll run hotel.
I'd recommend it to anyone.
I love it and I'll be back next year.

This was our fourth visit in seven years and it was a little disappointing in one aspect. Our standard room looked very tired, the shower area was mouldy and with dirty grouting between the tiles. We had to ask to have the room vacuumed as there was significant debris from the previous occupant including nail clippings - all in all quite disgusting. Housekeeping need to keep a tighter check on standards. On the plus side, all the staff from the bus driver to the manager were so helpful and eager to please. Breakfast was excellent and we preferred the bar meals rather than eating later in the main restaurant. With such a wonderful location and facilities, please don't let standards drop as The Cullinan is very special.

The amenities and room were very nice the staff was helpful, friendly and professional. The decor was tasteful. The location was centrally located near the convention center. Shopping was a short walk. The hotel provides free shuttle service to the Victoria and Albert Waterfront. From there you can take shop on hop off bus to any of 4 or 5 routes. These buses stop near most major attractions. You can also take a cruise of the harbor. There is also is a stop for one of the hop on hop off routes near the hotel. It was our anniversary and the hotel left us a lovely surprise.
