I stay at the Cullinan frequently, with tour groups that I lead and must say that the service is always of the highest quality. The staff are like colleagues - nothing is ever too much and no problem goes unsolved. From the porters and concierge to the security personal at the lifts, everyone is friendly and approachable. The hotel has a great vibe and it feels a lot like coming home when we arrive. The food is fabulous, the location prime and overall experience always a good one. Definitely one of my most highly recommended CT hotels for both business and leisure

I stayed for 4 nights while attending a conference at the centre attached to the Westin, which is across the road for The Cullinan. This is a beautifully presented hotel with some real character not an "off the shelf" chain clone not that's necessarily bad. But this hotel delivered on all important points. Nice well appointed rooms not huge but big enough. Clean well laid out bathrooms with good size bath and separate shower also good. Beds were comfortable well balanced between soft yet supportive and I am very fussy about my beds but was not disappointed. As others say breakfast is great with a huge array of options. Staff are friendly and helpful. If I were visiting Cape Town again this hotel would be top of my list. I agree it's not all that close to waterfront but it's a very short and inexpensive cab ride to get you there.

I stayed at the Southern Sun Cullinan hotel because of a business conference. It is located just opposite the Convention Center which was a big plus for me, especially since it rained one day while staying there. The staff were so friendly, attentive and efficient. The food was outstanding at the breakfast room; the bar is small but very warm and welcoming and the dinner which I had there was delicious. Room service is also quick and efficient. the room itsrelf was very comfortable, with the bedding and bath both first class. I would highly recommend this hotel especially for the business traveller and for couples who want to relax and enjoy Cape Town. I brought my "significant other" and she enjoyed the hotel, its amenities and staff very much.

I was attending a workshop at the Conference Centre across the road, so the location was ideal and also using the Hotel Shuttle available hourly to the Sea Front. The latter has restaurants and shops convenient for quick shopping for family since my schedule was very tight.

Booking in was painful. Only one receptionist who was under extreme pressure. After a lengthy wait she called for assistance which took their sweet time to arrive. Not a good start to our anniversary celebration! The room was pleasant. Dinner was excellent with the waiter at the restaurant being attentive, friendly and redeemed my opinion of the staff.
