Capetown southern Sun

Comfort, service, food
Very nice, but missed the wine reception we enjoyed in Johannesburg Southern Sun. Also found another hotel right on waterfront in Capetown for comparable price so we moved there.

Glenn W. Business travelers United States of America, January 22, 2013
Very nice hotel in a great location

Easy access to The Waterfront and freeways. Nice rooms, good staff
From the moment you arrive at the hotel until you depart, you will find the staff to be very helpful and courteous. The accomodation is good and this is a location I would return to and recommend to friends and colleagues. The restaurant has a great menu with an executive chef who is very keen on obtaining feedback and persoanlly makes an effort to meet his customers.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Be sure to visit the Waterfront, table mountain and have a meal at The Grand Cafe on the beach.

Good Hotel

All you expect for a four stars hotel
The hotel has a good location, walking distance to the V&A, very good breakfast. Need to improve in housekeeping service, we asked for an iron and after two hours waiting they never arrived, the housekeeper called after one and half hour and told us that she'll be in our room in five minutes, after a half hour never arrived and we went out.
