Best long stay in a hotel I ever have had. Whole the staff made this experience perfect. Warm, friendly and courteous attitude from them made me feel good! The location near Conference Center and Waterfront was great.

Stayed one night as first day of African Safari pre cruise. Lovely hotel. Great breakfast. Get special power adapters from the front desk. Good and plentiful free wifi. Walking distance to the Victoria & Albert Waterfront and the Long Street Bars. Stick to busy streets safe to go out at night. Only complaint would be the AC - fairly noisy... More

Stayed here a couple of times, but this time, we had to ask for water in the room (four guests = 1 teeny bottle), ask for more toiletries, no complimentary soft drink in the room, no cool drink / snack usually offered on arrival. These are the little WOWs! that make such a difference. The welcome was sort of luke... More

The location is perfect for those who participate in a conference at the convention center across the street. The shuttle bus to Waterfront every hour is a god service. The breakfast was exellent! The staff were very serviceminded.

I stayed at this Southern Sun property while attending a conference at the CTICC. The hotel is just across the street and therefore quite convenient. In addition, the service was good and the cuisine excellent. There is free internet in the rooms and a fairly decent fitness center. I would definitely stay here again.

the internet complement is not enough the service was excellent and the room was very clean. The location is very convenient where you can go to many places by walking. The best is the location of the hotel.
