Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 April 2013

We stayed Easter weekend so my husband could run the 2 Oceans marathon. The hotel provided a special breakfast and shuttle bus for the runners. Our boys (1,5 and 4,5) were entertained with all sorts of activities. Easter bunny came to visit and brought lots of chocolate. Staff is extremely friendly. Breakfast and Dinner buffet has a very wide variety, fresh and delicious. Rooms are nice and clean. Pool area is beautiful and quiet. The hotel bus brings you in 10 minutes to the waterfront and back. I think this hotel caters for everyone!

A large and rather formulaic business hotel (I was there on business) which clearly is in a different league to more boutique places like the V and A. A half-hour walk to the Waterfront over and alongside very busy roads. Modest rooms - no view from our of either waterfront or mountains - and no extra's such as dressing gowns. All in all a completely anonymous feel. This might have just edged into 'very good' but the high charges for rather poor WiFi automatically downgrades this business hotel as a place that doesn't provide for business travellers.

This is definitely one of the best places to stay in Cape Town . I have stayed here on numerous occasions - both business and pleasure - the staff are absolutely friendly and helpful and tend to your every need. On the most recent trip, I thoroughly enjoyed the special vegetarian breakfast options - great to see that they do cater for the minority . Great stuff !

Dear Vakalisa

It was a pleasure to have met you this morning.

I would just like to say thank you to you and all the hard working staff at the Cullinan who looked after me and my colleagues so well over the past few days.

I have unfortunately not taken down too many names and it is a pity as I would have liked to thank them all in person.

Margaret was the first person I encountered at check in and she did not only make me feel at home immediately but also noticed that I did not book a smoking room and she fixed that in a flash.

Although I did not spend too much time in the room, it was comfortable and the bed was a pleasure to sleep in even though it was about three hours a night.

The real hard working people were the bar staff. The bar became the unofficial head office and although, I assume local regulations force you to close up just short of pumpkin time, we did manage to make a fairly big dent in your inventory and your bar staff probably need a few medals - AND a few days to catch up on lost sleep.

All in all it was a great stay. We all enjoyed it very much and I will certainly be back.

The Cullinan team are superstars and I hope you can convey our thanks to them.

Very good city centre hotel, easy to find and well located. The reception process was painless, easy to drive up to and the concierge was attentive and efficient. Front desk very good and the public areas in the hotel are really very good. Room was fine, not huge but big enough and had pretty much everything you would need. The restaurant was fair, the selection for dinner was not really to my taste and could be improved upon. Breakfast was excellent. A really good base for anyone not looking to stay inside the Waterfront and offers excellent access both to the city and to the wider Cape Town area.

This hotel is conveniently located near the waterfront and across the street from the Cape Town Convention Center. The Weston is also directly across the street.

The rooms were clean, though the bathroom was a little small. Nonetheless there was a small shower and regular size bathtub in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable.

The lobby is large and appealing. The check in staff was outstanding.

Room service menu was good and service was good. The breakfast buffet is outstanding and includes made to order eggs and omlets.

There is a nice outdoor sitting and eating area which is very pleasant.

The staff at this hotel make this hotel unbelievably good from the moment you arrive at the front desk and into any service area all the staff are very friendly and helpful especially at breakfast Themba was brilliant. We were part of the Spar Conference group and the Brumbies were staying at this hotel as well so despite the hotel being full the standard of service was impeccable at all times. As an example our shower was blocked with water and within 5 mins it was sorted out by maintenance.
