Last weekend we were guest in The Cullinan. Fine hotel with really good rooms and perfect beds. The quality-price rate is excellent. Moreover, location is good and close to the waterfront, which is great.

This is a beautiful property with an elegance from days long gone. From the staff that greets you when you exit your car to the guest services personnel manning the front desk it is a customer focused atmosphere. The hotel is efficient yet doesn't feel rushed, it is elegant yet unpretenous. The rooms are nicely appointed and quiet. The hotel...

I stayed for 4 nights. Check in was very efficient, quick and professional. Room is a good size, with a nice bathroom. Wifi is free and reliable. Breakfast is above average. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Walking distance to the CTICC and The Waterfront. Good, standard 4 star hotel.

Stayed here while on a Collette Vacations tour. Very friendly staff. Conveniently located. Good shuttle service to and from waterfront. Breakfast buffet very good. Evening meal choices not the best. Service in evening was slow and less than enthusiastic.

The overall experience is always interesting, the staff is always efficient and helpful, my most exciting feel is the shuttle bus to water front for shopping and dining. looking forward to my next trip.

Generally good stay except my point raised regarding the presence of a VIP and the bodyguards. At least someone from the hotel should have notified me about this development and move me to another room away from the VIP.

We were recently on a Regent cruise and at the end of the cruise, they arranged for most of the people on the boat to stay at The Cullinan. If you can imagine over 300 people checking in at one time into a hotel, you can visualize the potential mess. We were all handled very quickly and efficiently and our...

The staff are lovely, good facilities, nice pool area and good light bites menu. It felt more like a conference facility than a holiday stop but having said that, the pool is lovely and there are nice loungers. A little further out than the 'waterfront' address suggests.

We stayed here for 4 nights in November and the hotel was lovely. I was a bit disappointed that the hotel was not on the waterfront as it said in the description, but the hotel did supply a transfer bus to and from the waterfront every day. We were on a bed and breakfast package and I must say the...
