Southern Sun Cullinan

Cape Town, South Africa

The hotel

Notable for its impressive tower, this hotel's style has been borrowed from the best ideas of classical architecture. The lobby is particularly impressive with its marble columns, bronze sculptures and huge picture windows leading out on to the pool, surrounded by an attractive terrace with neo-classical colonnade. All rooms command views of the city, Table Mountain, the harbour or the Atlantic Ocean. Stella Cafe and Bar has a Parisian chic vibe indoors, or you can dine al fresco overlooking the pool, with a fantastic selection of South African wines to compliment your chosen dish - an ideal way to wind down after a day of meetings or sightseeing.

Waited two hours for my room and had to ask. Had to find a waiter to get a drink - most of which we fetched ourselves, then had to find one to pay. Outside area filthy, cleaned table myself, ashtrays full and had to wait more than an hour for a bucket of ice and soft drinks. Checked out day early as not good for my health to endure this torture.

As Southern Sun hotels go this is pretty average. As a business traveler my expectations have grown. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly; however, the rooms and furnishings are dated and I was unimpressed by the instant coffee in the rooms and the piece of plastic in my scrambled eggs.
