Jut returned from Capetown and stayed at this lovely hotel. It is conveniently located directly across from the conference center. The hotel was very clean and the staff friendly. The buffet breakfast and lunch were both excellent. Lots of variety and really delicious. It is also a quick cab ride to the waterfront. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

I enjoyed my stay at Southern Sun Cullinan, Cape Town to an extent that I would not mind returning there if ever I visit Cape Town again. It was a wonderful, marvelous and homely feeling that I left with back home to Zambia.

From the moment we arrived at The Cullinan the staff were attentive & helpful. We landed in Cape Town early morning so as the hotel states we were not expecting to be able to check in until 2 p.m. however, we arrived at 8.30 a.m. to drop our bags and within half an hour of arrival the reception staff had...

I have been to The Cullinan twice for business with the last trip in March and another coming up this week. It is a clean hotel, friendly reception staff when checking in and the breakfast is superb not to mention the room service. I have no reservations in recommending this hotel to colleagues and friends. I am looking forward to... More

We organised a large international trade mission to Cape Town last week and were very pleased with the quality of accommodation and service we received at the Cullinan Hotel in Cape Town. The public areas (restaurants, reception, bars and swimming pool) are all immaculate and very attractive. We organised one dinner for 50 people in the private dining room and... More

I have stayed here several times and still love it. I have always had satisfactory rooms and this time (March 2014) I had a large and lovely room with which I was very happy. As a woman travelling alone I find that I am often given a room the size of a broom cupboard next to the lift shaft but... More

I booked an Executive room as I wanted to experience the "upgrade" of the hotel and was OVERLY surprised by the service offered. from the checkin to the in-room service - butler phoned within 15min of me arriving in room to the checkout. Well done Cullinan! See you soon!

I did not plan to stay here - my flight was cancelled and this is where the airline put me. O dear - it is a very tired looking hotel, grand on the outside and in the front lobby, but old fashioned on the inside. Small, American style rooms with low ceilings and poor lighting, and barely adequate facilities (no... More

Despite having e-mailed the hotel stating it's our honeymoon asking for champagne etc in our room, nothing had been done as per my e-mail sent 3 days prior to arrival. We stayed in some amazing places at half the price before arriving at the Cullinan, so it was really a major let down.

I knew of this hotel from a previous visit so also knew it was in a good location, just a short walk from the Waterfront. We had unfortunately arrived on the wrong weekend as the place was inundated with cycles - all over the foyer!!!! The staff were very helpful however and our room was fine too - on the... More
