The Management is omnipresent and helpful. The rooms are not crazy but it is a good value for money - nice beds very comfortable. I think after the friendliness and food my... More

We stayed at Southern Sun Mayfair before and after our safari and loved it! The staff were super friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffets and dinner were fantastic, our children (8&10) particularly enjoyed it and I thought they offered a great variety of fresh food. Gardens were lovely and there was a relaxed feel about the hotel and grounds. Loved... More

Hotel staff was friendly. Hotel was fully managed. Everything was awesome. Wednesday was always awesome there. Nice concept of social gathering. I had a lovely breakfast every morning. The hotel is an old colonial collection of structures in a well maintained compound which is charming. Overall awesome experience.

Staff were friendly and welcoming. Hotel was clean and nicely decorated, rooms of a good size and clean . Rooms were quiet and we all slept well in comfortable beds. We're disappointed the lovely poolside was shut in the evening for a wedding but we had a lovely break fast there in the morning. I thought the service was of... More

The architecture is well preserved Colonial type. Very well preserved with a very well kept garden and a koi carp pond. The food is excellent with a choice of restaurants by the poolor the steak house inside.

Very quiet and serene compound, decent rooms with comfortable if not a bit dated amenities. The hotel is an old colonial collection of structures in a well maintained compound which is charming, but the rooms deserve a bit of a face-lift. Breakfast was among the best anywhere, with a wide array of super delicious treats. Staff very polite and helpful.... More

Arrived late in the evening. A ways from the airport. Time for fine dinner in the Golden Spur. Room was fine and breakfast was excellent. Nice hotel for a layover. Grounds were quite lovely. Would stay there again.

First time back for ten years having been a regular visitor between 2003-2005. The staff all remembered me and greeted me like a long lost friend. It was lovely to see the warm and wonderful nature of your staff has remained in tact. The hotel retains its lovely boutique lodge ambiance and it is a fantastic place to stay whether... More
