I stayed at the Cullinan hotel during the weekend of the 10th May 2014 and i must say that I received one of my better hotel experiences. On checking in - i was immediately taken aback by the stunning lobby. Check in was a breeze and expertly handled and i was greeted by several courteous staff along the way to my room. The room was tastefully decorated and was finished in a a quite modern manner. I had previously stayed at the southern sun -next door - and this was much nicer.

Room service was delivered efficiently and the choice-although limited-was delicious. a nice touch was the 24 hour room service menu.

The turndown service was also quite good. I visited the bar as well - and i enjoyed the warm and friendly atmosphere.

the next time i am in Cape Town - will definitely stay here or reccommned this to colleagues and friend

My husband and I stayed at The Cullinan this weekend. We were immediately impressed by the service we recieved. The hotel staff were very friendly and explained the facilities we could use as guests.The room was clean and spacious. We ordered room service and the food was excellent- we even recieved a call from in-room dining to ask us if we required anything extra with our meal! Close to the V&A waterfront (free hotel shuttle service offered) and close to the highway.Very well maintained property, will definitely stay here again.

Great option if you are planning on spending a few days on central Cape Town. The hotel is located across the street from the Cape Town International Convention Centre, which makes it great for business trips. It is also located 5 minutes from V&A Waterfront, and offers complimentary transfer services to and from the Waterfront. The breakfast is great and a wide range of options are available. The room is really clean and organised and wi-fi internet is offered free of charge. The hotel also has a great pool, a buffet restaurant and a bar.

The Cullinan is a well run hotel. The staff are friendly and very welcoming. However, the front desk is a badly under staffed. Checking in and checking out takes ages! This is a pity as overall the service from porters, security, waiting staff, house keeping etc is really good.
In terms of the rooms, they are rather small. I was first offered a twin bed room which left little space to swing a cat. I moved to a double rom which was a little better. The bathrooms are very small and to get into the shower, you have to close the bathroom door in order to access the shower cubicle. If I were on a leisure stay, there are better places to stay where the views are more attractive than concrete buildings. If you are not staying in the hotel for long and on business and out most of the day, then The Cullinan would be ideal.

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up where it will be quieter away form the Main Street
