It was my first time staying at the Southern Sun Cape Sun as I normally stay at either the southern sun waterfront or Cullinan when I am working in Cape Town. I was taken aback by the lavish foyer and bar upon arrival as well as the friendly porters and manager who were eager to help. I had booked a... More

The friendliness and assistance of staff helped to have a relaxing stay and prepare good excursions and sightseeing. The hotel's location and shuttle service provided by the hotel to the Water Front was a great facility

It's old and dated, However the views from the upper floors are amazing. The rooms are old and defiantly needs a re-furb. The parking @ R95 / Day is daylight robbery. The location is excellent within walking distance to the bars and clubs in Long Steet.

My adult daughter and I were walking back from the Hop on Hop Off bus after dark several blocks away. We were approached by a man demanding money. He stayed with us for a few blocks,... More

After a long and tough day away from home and seeing clients,what better welcome would one have got in a hotel? Firstly your car is taken to be parked because you are just too tired to do it yourself. Next thing you wanna slump into a sofa, take off your shoes n close your eyes. You wuould not do all... More

This hotel made our trip to South Africa a dream come true. The staff is wonderful and everything about this hotel was amazing. The food (free breakfast) was very good and the food at night was good too.

We needed a place to meet for breakfast on the Easter weekend, and given our cousin and family were staying at the hotel, we decided to just have breakfast there. On the whole, the food was fine, but I must say we wished there were more waffle machines, as we waited an eternity for our waffles. And while they were... More
