Pleasant trip.
Great service. Buffet breakfast is amazing. Family room is slightly small. Children enjoyed the kids entertainment room setup for the holidays. Hotel is not far from Waterfront and there was a shuttle service to Waterfront.

Misrepresented
advertised as a waterfront hotel! this hotel is in the CBD of Cape Town. Total misrepresentation. The room was only big enough to take a small double bed with an uncomfortable soft mattress, no top sheet and a washed out throw at the bottom. Overpriced ..definitely not recommended, there are so many other better options.

Just don’t hesitate to stay here !!
A simply wonderful hotel made even better by the staff. Don’t get me wrong the room was not anything special. I would judge slightly better than a premier inn. However the location, food, service and friendliness was exceptional. Add on the little touches like the free shuttle bus, willingness of the staff to spend time with you to give you give the best advice to ensure you get the best out of your stay and there genuine warmth & friendliness set the hotel apart. The fact many of the aircrews stay at the Southern Sun stands testimony to the standard. It’s a 4 star hotel but I’ve certainly stayed in worse 5 star hotels !!!
