"One of the best hotels....." Southern Sun The Cullinan Tip by StublueKPL

Southern Sun The Cullinan, Cape Town: 1,515 reviews and 4 photos

Stayed here a few years ago for a week. This has to be one of the best hotels in which I have stayed in anywhere.

The staff are magnificent. Some of the friendliest people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. They can't do enough for you. As for the hotel itself, then I have to say that everyting is immaculate. The rooms are cleaned to a very high standard and the room itself is very nice. The pool is average but there is plenty of other things to do in Cape Town rather than sitting there all day!!

Although the bar is obviously more expensive than outside of the hotel, I still found it remarkably cheap (around £1.50-£2 per beer) but that was 4 years ago and at a rate of 15rand to the pound) But still for a hotel of this class, that is excellent.

To finish, I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Although more expensive than most, it is well worth it and in my opinion, the staff make it so.

Unique Qualities: Magnificent Staff.
