“One night sleepover”
Reviewed 12 January 2014 via mobile

Stayed here with my two daughters for one night. Pleasantly surprised. Check in/out was painless and easy. They go out of their way to help you. Staff at the breakfast buffet was very very friendly and helpful. Room was clean. Everybody friendly! Will stay here again.

We checked into the Southern Sun Waterfront Hotel at Capetown on the morning of the 15th of december, 2013. The checking in staff were quick and efficient and very soon we were taken to our room on the 12th floor. The room and bathroom were neat and clean. The breakfast spread was amazingly awesome with a wide variety of delicious food . The hotel provided a shuttle service to the waterfront after every half an hour. The hotel staff was also very helpful in arranging the tours around the city. We stayed till the 20th and we would like to thank the staff for the warm welcome and very pleasant and comfortable stay that we had there. And yes, we would definitely love to go back . We would like to specially thank ' Mr Rameez' for all his help and guidance.

Room Tip: The rooms on the higher floors provide a better view.

We checked into the Southern Sun Waterfront just before Christmas and were immediately made to feel welcome when we were greeted by Florence (the guest relations manager).

The hotel was fully booked and there was definitely a buzz. The newly renovated rooms were compact but comfortable for a family of four. The fridge in the room also made a difference as we could store milk for the kids breakfast in the morning.

The Sun Kids Programme that ran over the same time allowed the adults to enjoy their holiday too. The ladies that ran the Programme did a good job and the kids enjoyed the activities. My only suggestion would be to add a few more helpers as they had their hands full.

We also felt safe as there was a definite security presence.

All in all a good family hotel.

From arrival to departure was an awesome experience. Breakfast had a great variety that catered for all, just make sure you do it early as it does get busy and you might have to wait to be seated.Thanks

We were lucky enough to stay at Southern Sun waterfront for 3 nights in October, 2013. Close to all amenities (wharf, Hop on Hop off Bus tour line, shopping). They served an excellent breakfast buffet every morning... Must try the homemade granola! Rooms were well appointed and clean. Best of all --- the staff, truly the most helpful and genuine. Wouldn't change a thing. Great place to rest your head after a day of sightseeing.

Unfortunately we ran out of time and didn't get a chance to use the spa facilities. Maybe next time.

Our family of four stayed her over Christmas 2013 and liked the hotel very much. We had two rooms (queen and the other w/two doubles) which were clean and met our needs. The hotel's restaurant had a very nice breakfast buffet, though the waiters must have a competition for how quickly they can remove plates. (Barely two seconds went by from our last bite before the plate was cleared!) We really appreciated the help from the concierge team, particularly Meegan. The shuttle from the waterfront to the hotel was appreciated but it was a little confusing about the pick-up location (might have been due to the Christmas holiday.) The pool area is small, but nice. All staff were very friendly and we would recommend this hotel.
