A rather tired hotel next to the Convention Centre so ideal if you are ending up there.About 25 minute walk into the V&A. Room on the 6th floor.No view.Musty smell.Clean. Bar good but slow for food.Staff very helpful. Breakfast mobbed but more than adequate Biggest drawback was the (free) wifi..."Always On'....was Alaways Off.Had to reconnect everytime.Such a pain.

A nice hotel with close proximity to the CTICC. Reception staff were warm, friendly and always on hand with a smile. Room was ok although a little dated and small for the price - not sure why they only offer tiny bottles of water. Breakfast was fair, however, staff were slow to replenish certain items and obtaining a hot drink...

After safaris in South Africa & Botswana, trains through Zimbabwe, beaching it in Zanzibar our stay at The Cullinan was the luxury part of our adventure. Great spot, great location, super friendly and helpful staff. The guys arranged a night tour for our family to one of the Cape Town informal settlements which was just amazing, it's a must do....

Room very clean and well appointed, very comfortable bed. Breakfast great except really hard to get staff to bring you a hot drink. Why not just have a tea/coffee machine for clients? Location is very convenient for the conference centre, just across the road

The Cullinan is just across the street from the Convention Center, and 15 minute walk to the waterfront. Hotel rooms are a little dated. The key problem with the hotel is that I left my Rayban glasses inside its case and just realized after I got home that someone took the glasses and left the empty case in my luggage....

Easy access on / off the highway, very central to all tourist attractions! Opposite convention centre so perfect for conference attendees. Walking distance from V&A Waterfront. Comfortable beds, great pillows! Very friendly staff. Heated pool with a spa on site.

I love this place. It helped that I was cycling but uniquely the hotel staff and culture embraced cyclists their needs and their bikes. For cyclists to have your bike welcomed and valued is important and the Cullinan has worked this out. The staff could not be more interested, friendly and attentive. The breakfast was stunning, pool area and bar...

Front desk service was efficiency and pleasant. Buffet dinner had a great selection and the food was very well prepared. The rooms are a...
