I travelled to Cape Town as a Broadcast journalist covering the big story for the day at Parliament for the Mid Term Budget speech. It was great to stay so close as it gave me the option to walk or drive comfortably. Your location is perfect but your facility and service is even better. It made for a lovely stay....

Spent some time at SunSquare on a recent business trip to Cape Town, it had all the main amenities and was generally clean. The staff,however, were not very attentive especially during breakfast, had to wait a long time and ask a couple of times before coffee was eventually served to my table. The reception/ front desk manager lady the morning...

Perhaps a glass of wine could be a little less costly in the lounge and in the dining room. Is it not possible to have Kyk Net available on TV. It is appreciated that the Reception Desk could handle our enquiries in Afrikaans.

Comfortable room. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Breakfast was as usual. Loved the pancake machine. Lots to do and see in the vicinity. Red bus seems to pass by very often. For the time one spends in the room, it suffices. Never got to visit Labia as our time was short. All in all a good stay.

My family enjoyed the stay and want to go back to Cape Town before the end of the year. This is because of the experience and service we received at the hotel. The room was cosy and clean at all times. The location of the hotel next to Table Mountain is best.
