Was on a business trip and stayed here for two nights. This was the fourth stay at this hotel and once again have not been disappointed. Don't know the secret but when you enter the hotel it smells lovely! Reception staff are most welcoming and they serve one of the best breakfast selections in Cape Town. From my last stay... 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.
