As mentioned, location is pretty good, but not great. Overall the hotel standards are high and staff helpful. A few things disappoint me. The rooms are quite small, the TV a little small. The bathtub can surely only be used by a child, and the shower quite small too - found myself banging elbows into the shower screens when washing.... More

I've stayed at the Southern Sun Waterfront Hotel on each visit to Cape Town. It offers comfortable rooms, has good restaurants and amenities. The V&A Waterfront is only a short drive away, as are some of the other popular spots & restaurants. For a convenient and super comfortable stay - this is your best bet!

We stayed at the hotel for the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon. Hotel staff are friendly, welcoming and very hospitable. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The breakfast was delicious and catered for all.

Nothing to add as my stay is satisfactory thanks you for your hospitality. The room I stayed in was on the floor which has been recently upgraded which made my experience so much pleasant. No more remnants of smoke smell.

The room was nice, clean with views over the city. Once you knew where to look you could see the cable car on table mountain from the room. Bed was comfortable with clean white sheets. Bathroom small with shower and a bath. Breakfast was a buffet with a large selection and fresh. Eggs cooked when you requested.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were all lovely and cheerful. Plenty of choice at breakfast. We asked the concierge to recommended a good steakhouse and The Hussar Grill was excellent. Felt safe enough to walk to and from the Waterfront. Would definitely stay there again.
