Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Cullinan is a convenient target hotel for Business Travellers and Conference attendees. More consistent service is required amongst the Personnel, especially at reception. The servicing and maintenance of rooms require more attention to detail - not quite up to standard. Overall this is a 3 to 3.5 out of 5 experience

Service was excellent. The internet was fast and reliable, however I wish it was unlimited. Despite room service being fast and the staff being nice and friendly, the food did not meet my expectations, it was just okay

We stayed here for the Two Oceans Marathon weekend. We ended up at the hotel much earlier than planned, but they took our bags and stored them for us while we walked across the street to the convention center for packet pick-up.

I was on my way through to another destination with a single night's stay in Cape Town. I arrived after having spent a full day in the air and the last thing you would want is a lot if fuss and bother to get to your bed, sleep, and have breakfast the next morning before pushing on. The taxi rides...

Great hotel. Great location. Excellent service. Really awesome breakfast. We had a fabulous time. The heating of the pool was a great addition. Will most certainly use this hotel again on our return to Cape Town.

Spent 4 nights at the Southern Sun The Cullinan. It is a beautiful hotel conveniently located near downtown. It has a shuttle that takes guests to Victoria Wharf for shopping and dining. The restaurant and bar in the hotel also has really good food.
