During my visit to Cape Town back in May of this year I decided on splitting my stay in two hotels The Cullinan was the first of my stay.We had prebooked a transfer with the Hotel direct to collect us from Cape Town Airport, it was a top of the range mercedes (most hotels use this car for pickups) it cost us R100//£9.00 approx and the transfer took approximately 35 minutes and it was definately the most stress free transfer I have ever had.
The Cullinan is a 4 star hotel and once we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by the Concierge we were then directed to the Reception desk and were very pleasantly greeted by the two members working on the reception.
Check-in opens at 2pm.
I checked in with my name and then was asked to sign the invoice, checking the names of the guests and my home address. They required a credit card imprint for any charges to the room once we checked-out . We were then provided with our key card for the room which we were informed we would have to show whenever we billed anything to the room.
We walked straight ahead from the foyer which is marbled and elegant rugs are displayed in the seating areas with comfortable sofas and chairs.There are both stairs and elevators up to the rooms which are located just off the foyer.
Once we arrived at our room it was clear to see how spacious it was and was so clean and light. Our room was overlooking the hotel pool and you could see in the distance the Victoria and Albert waterfront.
We were told that there were 416 rooms in the hotel and all of the same high quality standard, inside the room was two large beds although we had requested a double room, the beds themselves were larger than a standard single bed so it was not a problem as the bed easily accommodated 2 people.
There was a large colour television located at the food of the bed and had sky news and local channels as most hotels do and of course there was the option to pay for movies etc should you require this service and this would be added onto your bill upon check-out.
The bathroom was very spacious and had both a separate shower and bath, luxurious white towels and complimentary toiletries.
In addition there was a work desk with lamp, the voltage is 220v so you do need an adaptor to plug in UK appliances. A direct dial telephone is standard in all rooms and optional internet access for a charge.
We had breakfast included in the cost of the room this was in the Peach Tree Breakfast Room, open Mon-Fri 06:30-10:30am and on the weekend 07:00-11:00am.
There was a wide selection of products available ranging from Fresh Fruit, Cold meats and cheese to a full cooked breakfast, with chef's on hand to freshly prepare your eggs to whatever style you prefer.
The rooms are serviced daily and you can use the "Do not disturb" door hanger or "Service my room" to suit your stay.After 2 nights it was time to move onto the next hotel and I was pretty anxious about my next hotel as I had found this to be absolutely fautless.
This hotel was definately one of the best I saw around and is well worth hunting around for a competitive price, I recommend going direct to the Hotel if you are purchasing accommodation and flights separately as you will find it still works out fairly cheaply but if you would like it all packaged up, Thompsons and Virgin Holidays feature this hotel.****Contact Hotel****
