... for a very enjoyable stay, great breakfast (we miss it ever since we left!) and also great service - your staff was the most friendly, helpful und funny staff during our trip through South Africa :)
Our room was clean, food was delicious and the location is good to discover Cape Town :)

Hotel is a good one but comes second best to it's sister hotel the Southern Sun Waterfront which has a great location, views, modern clean rooms, friendly staff especially the barman Riaaz and his team who is entertaining.This hotel has a tiny gym, drinks are really expensive and the bar staff a little aloof. The staff very professional but in a cold pretentious but you don't feel like you are really getting value. In fact everything feels pretentious and overdone to justify squeezing another buck out of you.

Was on a business trip and stayed here for two nights. This was the fourth stay at this hotel and once again have not been disappointed. Don't know the secret but when you enter the hotel it smells lovely! Reception staff are most welcoming and they serve one of the best breakfast selections in Cape Town. From my last stay here about two years ago they've renovated the rooms and bathrooms, very nice. Hotel is close to the Waterfront but taxis are plentiful and not expensive (think the hotel offers a shuttle to the Waterfront). Well located for business and pleasure. Easy to find if driving from the airport

Room Tip: Higher rooms on the one side of the hotel gave gorgeous views over the water

I stayed here for 1 night and I have nothing but praise for this hotel. I travel often and never have I met such friendly and helpful staff. The room was tastefully decorated, breakfast was good and u received value for money. Close proximity to the cticc and other attractions

Enjoyed my stay at this property and had a good experience as usual. The staff are well trained and professional. The front desk personnel were friendly and all the other hotel personnel that I met on the property were also friendly and helpful. The hotel's location is great for easy access to the freeways and to other roads around the city. Easy access to the waterfront facilities and the ICC (if you are there for conference. Easy access to taxies and airport bus.

We stayed in the Cullinan for a week as a family. We had the family room on the 3rd floor and later moved to the family room on the 5th floor due to a blocked drain somewhere that was causing quite a stink.
Apart from that mishap, everything about the place was enjoyable. The service was good all-round, from the restuarants to the concierge to the front desk and cleaning. The location was ideal as it is very central for sightseeing in Cape Town. The breakfast and dinner were both buffets with a good selection to choose from.
The clientele is very much slanted toward the businessman as it is located adjascent to the Internation Convention Centre. Also they seem to service several airlines as there was a contant flow of aircrew through the hotel.
As a family hotel though I felt that the rooms were decently apportioned and comfortable all around. Would recommend.

Staff at The Cullinan, truly know the meaning of providing great service... Unforgetable and will definitely return. From the porters down to the restuarant staff, friendly, helpful and willing to go the extra mile.
