Phenomenal service, great hotel & walking distance to V&A waterfront. This was my 6th visit and once again I'm impressed... Compared to other hotels in the area rates are really a bargain! R1,850.00 per room. Breakfast is great and caters a wide selection!

Hotel staff especially kind and collaborative. Excellent breakfast. Good location, near the waterfront. Very convenient transfer service each half hour. Soundproofing of the rooms could be better but this problem would not prevent me from staying there again.

The hotel room was fine. The food and service was excellent. Sadly the route from the hotel to the harbour can be dangerous. A trip to remember though with table mountain in clear view. Lots of activities and helpful staff to help with planning visits.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Location is ideal as close to the major highways and easy to get around to other areas of the city. Service was great and the rooms were comfortable; albeit a bit small. The breakfast spread was decent as with any other business hotel. Didn't have time to use the other pool and gym facilities.

We had a girls weekend away and stayed at the Southern Sun Waterfront, and it was just the kind of place we needed! Close and accessible to all entertainment yet far from the noise of crowds. The staff was friendly and very accommodating, and not to mention the breakfast - phenomenal!
