I got a room on the 24th floor and while it was difficult to choose between a sea facing or a mountain facing room I eventually opted for sea facing. The rooms are spacious, have incredible views and windows that open. The hotel is dated but that also adds to its overall charm. The shuttle service offered by the hotel... More

The views are nice from the upper floors. It's fun riding in the glass elevator. The room decor is a bit dated. The breakfast spread in the morning is pretty impressive. Service for drinks, food, etc. is generally slow. Service for room amenities and guest services is much better.

We had visited Cape town on our holidays at South Africa. The hotel has a fantastic location and also great views of the table mountain if you are fortunate enough to get Table mountain facing rooms. The breakfast is good and a lot of variety. Also the rooms are nice and clean and spacious. Its near to the city centre... More

The location of this hotel is really very good with nice shuttle service. There are very good shops just around the corner. Getting a room at a higher floor is really awesome as the view from the top is awesome especially of the Table Mountain.

Centrally located, this hotel is a fair place to spend a night or two. With the traffic in the City Centre as well as the one-way streets access (to the hotel) is not straight-forward. Once you reach the hotel, though, the arrangement the hotel has with regards to management of your vehicle is welcome. I requested a room with a... More

The hotel is in a nice central location with free shuttles to the water front mall area. It was clean and the staff were friendly. However... The rooms are outdated and our room smelled like varnish/chemicals the whole time. Also, the speed in the restaurant our last night was pitiful... Taking an hour and fifteen minutes for a sandwich and... More

We have recently returned from Southern Sun, Cape Town, the final stop on our holiday. The hotel was beautiful, the staff were so helpful and could not do enough for us and location was perfect. We must make a special thank you to Richard who went out of his way to make our stay a memorable one. If we are... More

We can't rate this hotel highly enough - from the moment we arrived the staff were probably the most welcoming ever - it is in the middle of the city so we didn't mind paying for parking - the glass lifts with a view of table mountain are an experience - we had a city view room on the 22nd...
