Waited two hours for my room and had to ask. Had to find a waiter to get a drink - most of which we fetched ourselves, then had to find one to pay. Outside area filthy, cleaned table myself, ashtrays full and had to wait more than an hour for a bucket of ice and soft drinks. Checked out day early as not good for my health to endure this torture.

As Southern Sun hotels go this is pretty average. As a business traveler my expectations have grown. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly; however, the rooms and furnishings are dated and I was unimpressed by the instant coffee in the rooms and the piece of plastic in my scrambled eggs. I will most likely return to the more modern SunSquare next visit.

It's a beautiful hotel with great views. What impresses me is their attention to details. They served a lovey spread with sparkling wine, sushi, cakes and a whole lot more served by the chef himself. The staff is attentive, friendly and helpful. They also have a lovely bar with a deep blue pool which is heated. Perfect for the winter months. I will recommend it to anyone who is looking to host a special celebration or just a romantic stay.

The hotel is beautiful and service was first class. I really enjoyed my 3 night stay at this hotel. The breakfast was sumptuous with very fresh fruits every morning. My best part was the beautiful and expansive lobby. All the workers were professional and served with a smile. However If I have to single one it will have to be Mr Fefe at front desk.
