I was here with a group of students for the Global Youth Peace Indaba. I've stayed in many hotels and this was a very, very pleasant stay. First and foremost, the staff is outstanding. They're attentive, polite, friendly, and helpful. Our group had some unique needs at times and they were able to accommodate. The hotel itself is centrally located,... More

I wouldnt return to this hotel, even if I got paid to do it. We had an experience with a nasty porter who was unprofessional to say the least, without elaborating. His personal attack on us led to us asking to check out earlier than planned. He would not let us return to our room after we had been out... More

Had a great stay at the Cape Sun while attending a conference. My suite was spacious, clean and had ample packing space. Rooms in the hotel have stunning views over either Table Mountain or the Atlantic Ocean and city centre. The glass lifts provides a breath-taking view of Table Mountain. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. The hotel... More

I stayed here as part of a conference for 4 nights. I had arrived early (around 11:30am) after a very long flight and even though my room was not ready (check in is strictly at 2pm) they upgraded me to a suite that was ready. This was extremely kind of them to do. The hotel is plush with an impressive... More

A hotel kept in very good condition and the only one with outside lifts for super views of the mountain and surrounds or the Robin island , waterfront and the sea. Glass lifts to the 32nd... More

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights on a Smartrip tour. I expected a rather drab, impersonal lodging and was pleasantly surprised. We are experienced travelers (visits to 90 countries) and found more selection and quality items on the Breakfast menu than in any other foreign (exclude Las Vegas) country we have visited. My wife, the antique hunter, scored... More

The 15 year relationship with this hotel continues. Not once have I had a reason to complain...and customer feedback has always been incorporated. Location offers convenience for the business traveler seeking convenient access to the CBD.

Located in the convenient downtown section, a short walk from the "Company gardens" promenade and several attractions. Rooms are a bit dated and lack some amenities that Americans take for granted (like an ice bucket or fridge in the room, or an iron, etc.). The buffet breakfast is beautifully arranged and wide variety (as is the dinner buffet at the... More

Overall an Excellent Stay at the Hotel which was in walking distance of my Company’s Offices. Staff was friendly and eager to provide service at the highest level. The food was of high quality and the menu catered to all people’s liking.
