This hotel promises a wonderful stay when you walk in, the high ceilings and beautiful atmosphere. You can see it has history about it. The foyer staff are super friendly and you can see that they have gone to great lengths to make the cyclists feel welcome for the race of the year! Argus weekend. They did a great job...

We had a fun weekend and was treated as royalty. The Vip weekend package for the CPT Carnival was absolutely value for money and it made going to the carnival with kids stress free. Will definitely do it again!!

The hotel was bang in the central with local market and almost everything was available within a km vicinity.. The buffet was good in taste but the menu/ items was monotonous / repetitive. The staff were polite and helpful. The cabs were easily available. For shopping "Woolworth market" is just adjacent.

The Cape Sun is a very tall hotel, over 30 floors tall, located in downtown Cape Town. Some of the rooms offered a spectacular view of Table Mountain. The higher the floor the better the views. The hotels location is close to free walking tours through historic Cape Town and is close to City Sightseeing (hop on/hop off) bus tours...

Stayed at the hotel while attending a conference at the CTICC. Although it started off shakey because the receptionist made me wait over an hour for my room to be ready... it could have easily gone downhill... instead it didn't and was the complete opposite! They didn't have to, but they brought up a bottle of wine to say sorry...

We stayed here before joining a Nomad tour. We were greeted with a drink on arrival and the check-in process was easy. Our room had a spectacular view of Table Mountain and large windows which left the view unspoilt. The room had a safe, TV, hairdryer and aircon and the beds were very comfortable. The staff were very helpful when...

We stayed at this hotel for five nights. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable with nice size modern bathrooms. Safe in wardrobe, AC, fridge plus tea and coffee making facilities. Recommend staying on high floor as views either to V&A Waterfront (even numbered rooms) or towards Table Mountain (odd numbered rooms) are good. Note that even numbered rooms suffer from...

Even though it was the weekend of the Cape Cycle Tour the hotel's service was wanting. Cold breakfast, poor housekeeping and being chased for cash payment at the bar while I hold their Black loyalty card (highest level) left a poor taste.

The stay at this hotel was lovely, pity it ended so soon. The staff at reception was courteous, friendly and efficient with check-in, check-out and general queries. I was surprised to have had to pay for the tourism levy at check out though, it wasn't much money but I couldn't get an explanation as to why it wasn't charged with...
