This Hotel is all about food. One meal follows the other. It is just unbelievable the variety of dishes they serve up at every mealtime. From Breakfast, Lunch to Dinner. Amazing!!!! Most Hotels are about décor of rooms, etc. However, this hotel has decided that to give their guests delicious food is the way forward. Does not matter when and...

service sometimes good and then bad. Air conditioners old and not effective at all.The live music in the foyer is nice the piano player is excellent. On booking in the reception staff or rather the person (male) that did my booking was plainly just rude

The location of Southern Sun near the airport is a big advantage. The is shuttle service running frequently between hotel and airport. The rooms and furniture are little outdated. The breakfast spread is very good especially the fresh fruits. Complimentary water bottle and tea / coffee are provided in the room. The hotel serves complimentary juices and wine between 5...

Everything was fine , staff friendly and shuttle frequent, The only complaint I had was that they forgot my ice bucket twice and and by the time it arrived I had finished eating plus there was a worm crawling on my flower on the tray.

Rooms are dated and drab.Aircons antiquated. Noisy passages,doors banging till late night..Rooms not sound proof to outside noises. Drywalling plays a role and door seals.Small bottle water in room,no mini bar.Food and kitchen /dining staff excellent.Basin in bathroom smells from drain clogged..not sure I would book in there again.Always an issue when checking in or out..

I arrived late at night from Cape Town for an early morning flight out of Johannesburg. The reception staff were friendly and attentive at check in. The best thing about this hotel is their beds. The moment you sit on the bed you know you are going to have a good nights sleep, amazingly comfortable with great soft duvet and...

I stayed here one night and I thought the place was really nice. One issue, the noise from the lobby floats up a few floors as it is an open concept. The noise filters right into your room if you are close the area. Another issue, a bit pricey, but it is worth being close to the airport if you...

I needed only one night in Johannesburg, and thought tis to be the hotel of choice - Not too expensive and shuttle from airport included and all. I was really disappointed with the standard I got. It seems they have washed the carpet in my room as there was a very musty smell - The entrance door to the room...
