One of the best hotels in service together with Hemingways. I always enjoy staying in Cape Sun. It has become home away from home for me. This time they even upgraded me to an executive room . even the service at breakfast and dinner was outstanding.

Didn't eat in the...

Many years ago this was the Holiday Inn Cape Town. Not in a nice area and the hotel is in need of a refurbishment and the hotel's free WiFi is limited to 500mb per day then you have to pay which is annoying. On a positive note, good value for money and outstanding views of Table Mountain if your room...
