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.

Poor and disruptive service. Was not given payment details at checkin. But i paid half bill upfront voluntarily. Then I was rudely interrupted multiple times at 2nd night (e.g. whilst on toilet at ~10pm, having spent 12 hrs in the hotel in a small breakout conf room...thus, i would have been very easy to locate during normal daylight hours!, again...

Keep up the good standards you have at Southern Sun Hotel. It is a good and excellent place to be. Everything else is just up to standard. I however suggest that you put bar fridges in rooms. Keep it Up.

Stayed here for one night during a stopover in Joburg and was pleasantly surprised. The staff was extremely helpful and gave us late check out. The dinner buffet was good, but the breakfast buffet was one of the best selections I have seen that comes free. The wait staff were attentive and really nice. They made friends with out toddler...
