The staff was amazing and the hotel was very comfortable. Right around the corner was a nice square with local crafts and inexpensive shops and restaurants. The hotel had a shuttle to the waterfront which was very upscale and clean. It is a good thing they did as it is inadvisable to go out after dark in this area. We... More

The property is a stones throw from the city center. So most of the local shopping markets/ Metro Stations and night life is at walking distance from the hotel. The hotel is 32 story tall and offers a great view of the Table Mountains. We stayed at the 14 th floor and the Spa was at the 32 nd floor... More

Southern Sun Cape Sun is well situated within walking distance of Company Gardens, Parliament, the Iziko South Africa Museum and Mount Nelson Hotel if you want to treat yourself to High Tea. Our room on a high floor gave stunning views of Table Mountain as did the glass lifts. An hourly shuttle bus runs to the V & A Waterfront... More

Air travel necessitates sample size products for liquids for carry on luggage - which I did with my hair styling products. Unfortunately housekeeping decided to throw away my sample size products which I left on the bathroom counter, neatly arranged next to my make up bag.
