Well run hotel and effiecient staff. Great Location. breakfasts are fantastic. Nice rooms. A little on the large side so not a very intimate hotel but not designed to be one either. free shuttle transfers to the waterfront. You could in fact walk to the waterfront. If you are in Cape Town for a conferance at the CTICC you could...

Everything met my expectations and I enjoyed a wonderful stay. Close to the airport. The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful. Dinner was great and the breakfast out of this world. Everything you expect from a world class hotel like this.

I attended a couple of sports meetings at the hotel recently for the second time. It's proximity to the OR Tambo International Airport is most pleasing and there's a 30-minute shuttle service for guests behind the Intercontinental Hotel. Check-in was efficient as I arrived early hours at about 6.30am. The room was neat and comfortable with both heating and air-conditioning...

Service is also quite good. Piano in the evening in the lobby with choir from the staff was an innovative addition to the ambience. The stay was...

We stayed here as a family of 4 (2 AD + 2 CH) and had a great experience. The food and service was excellent. Dinner was a buffet which included sushi so everyone was very happy with the variety. Breakfast was excellent and was included in our price. The room was average to good. The two beds booked were rather...

We arrived at 9 PM at this nice hotel; a short shuttle ride from the airport after a 21 hour trek to South Africa. The room was a nice size, with a very comfortable bed and internet access, and breakfast was included, with an egg station. We didn't stay very long (left shortly after 8 AM the next day).

Next to the Airport, you can use the shuttle service bus offered by the hotel. The hotel has a nice swimming pool, nice Spa, a small Fitness area and a fair restaurant. If you want to avoid traffic jam is the proper place where to stay, if customers come to visit you.

Excellent service from Southern Sun. Being using Protea for so long. Never knew Southern Sun had a better service. From the reception to the staff, and all other services. It was a million times better. Thanks.
