The front desk personnel were friendly and all the other hotel personnel that I met on the property were also friendly and helpful. The hotel's location is great for easy access to the freeways and to other roads around the... More

We stayed in the Cullinan for a week as a family. We had the family room on the 3rd floor and later moved to the family room on the 5th floor due to a blocked drain somewhere that was causing quite a stink. Apart from that mishap, everything about the place was enjoyable. The service was good all-round, from the... More

Staff at The Cullinan, truly know the meaning of providing great service... Unforgetable and will definitely return. From the porters down to the restuarant staff, friendly, helpful and willing to go the extra mile.

My Favorite hotel experience in South Africa. I was so thoroughly impressed with the luxurious rooms, hotel facilities, shuttle service, great staff, lovely food and close proximity to the Waterfront, ICC etc. I still rave to friends and family about your facility. Furthermore as a Tsogosun frequent guest member I can barely wait to stay with you again in December.

This hotel has a fantastic vibe as you walk into the entrance, very grand and stylish. Check in was easy and finding our way to the room easy, the room itself was a nice size with the best bed. unfortunately as my room overlooked the main road facing V&A way, the noise during the night of traffic was a bit...

The rooms, service and experience was impeccable. The stay was also cost-effective for us. i will definately recommend this hotel to others. We were not able to make use of the gym and dining at this time and will make sure that we do so on our next visit.

I participated in a congress across the street at the convention centre. The hotel itself is Italian style and very attractive and clean. The concierge staff was exceptionally helpful, the breakfast and dinner buffets were superb. Live musicians graced the lobby and restaurant throughout my week-long stay. The hotel franchise offers a shuttle which my colleagues and I took to... More
