Not quite on the Waterfront but very close and a great shuttle service to Waterfront. The food and service is absolutely awesome, do not plan on losing weight here. Rooms are of good standard and the Spa is also awesome. Will recommend to anyone.

We liked everything about this hotel. The place was clean and the staff friendly. But what stands out the most is the food. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I've seen. There is so much to choose from cereal,cheese, yogurt, muffins, danishes, pancakes, bacon, eggs, beans. I could go on and on. My personal favorite was the fresh croissants with strawberry jam.
Do not overlook the hotel restaurant either. They grill the perfect steak, and the bread and butter pudding is fantastic.
Another option is room service the prices are very reasonable and the food is also delicious.
If I ever go back to Cape Town I would not even look at staying somewhere else.

I traveled to Cape Town for the first time with 5 friends and our stay at the Southern Sun Waterfront Cape Town was perfect. The hotel is well kept and clean and the staff was very helpful for whatever we needed them for. There is a shuttle throughout the day that takes you to the Victoria Waterfront mall which was very helpful. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have ever seen and it was included in our price of the room. It had something for everyone and was open early for those of us leaving on long day excursions. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a memorable stay in Cape Town.
