Firmly situated next to The Provincial Capital, this outfit is within a walking distance of the bulk of amenities. The adage"Travelling expands ones Horizons' is best defined by this institution.For those who despise traveling with polish and brush, hold your oxygen!!!Before check in, a big chair with same greets you.Recommends it to one and all

Haven't felt this relaxed in a hotel for some time now. Everything was awesome. I asked for out of the ordinary requests like keeping my water in my cooler box chilled in their fridges and they had no problem. It was great.

I travelled to Nelspruit with my daughters, and I must say Southern Sun Emnothweni made our mini vacation worthwhile, from service delivery at the reception to the spacious and comfortable room allocated. We had a slight challenge with our credit card, but the receptionist was patient and understanding, attributes that I value when it comes to service delivery. Breakfast did...

My visit was for business purpose but it also felt like a holiday too. The place is just a stone throw from the mall, government offices and all those things. In fact, the environment completes everything, i'll definitely visit this place again.

Apart from (unnecesarily) officious security guard, the casino played host to a wine show and did so effortlessly and well. Nice sized, well appointed facility and close to other amenities. Convenient parking, generally all good.
