My family and myself are regular patrons of the newly revamped Sun1 establishments. We booked into the Sun1 Foreshore Cape Town. What a disappointment. After being relocated to 4 different rooms after various stuff in the rooms were not functional, from the tv to the aircon to the only light. The rooms are not up to the new Sun1 standard....

I have to use this place for work and have complained before. Nothing has changed. A pubic hair clear as day on the sheet below the pillow. The duvet cover is stained and dirty, which tells me that they don't get changed, probably ever. Looking at housekeeping, there are no bed covers in the removed laundry. The floor is extremely...

The rooms are basic and the shower tiny but for the price and location and safety you get it is probably the best option for this price range.

R40 for four types of plastic cereal, bread and coffee. Juice was finished with tap facing upwards. A total ripoff, especially for a diabetic. R40 for plain coffee is disgusting, as I couldn't eat anything. I found a fat, black hair on the marked sheet, and the bed cover obviously doesn't get replaced. The carpet probably never gets vacuumed either....

“Although you would need to climb a flight of stairs, rather book a room above ground level as there is a large window in the room which is nice to leave open. Being on the ground floor, there could be a security problem.”
