Stayed at the Southern Sun this last weekend, Febrary 5th - 7th for a weekend retreat. Check in was smooth. The rooms looked a bit dowdy and require renovation and modernisation but were comfortable. There is wi-fi - and it is fast. The best part of this hotel is the food! There was a small band that played Friday night... More

The hotel rooms need to be modernized especially the AC systems . No remote controls and very noisy The carpets are worn , the water quality is poor and generally the establishment must be revamped to compete on the prices

The hotel is decent. Not five star but it is clean. Food is o.k., not great but there is probably something for everyone on the menu and on the daily buffet. The buffet has a lot of Nigerian dishes which seem to be popular. The rooms are a good size, housekeeping does a good job. The electricity goes out all... More

I was in southern sun with my two sisters for 2 nights, I enjoyed every second. It so much reminded me of Hotel Verde in Cape Town cos they have a lot in common. The service, the hospitality, the rooms are all great. I enjoyed every meal. The environment is so cool. I'll definitely go back on my next visit... More

Unknown to my friends and I, Southern Sun Ikoyi offers a great ambience to kick start the weekend. We had a really exciting night enjoying wine and cocktails at the bar/lounge area and had delicious bites to nibble on. My friends and I will definitely visit the hotel bar on another Friday night.

Southersun Ikoyi is a hotel that brings peace/relaxation to me whenever I visit. During my last visit, I was a bit disappointed at the reception I got from the front office staff on duty. As front-liners in any hotel and first point of contact one will expect a better welcome. The lady on duty made me feel I was been... More

This hotel is good but the standard of cleanliness neds to improve. I find that the cleaners are clueless and do not even know the right gadgets to use for cleaning. They do not seem to appreciate hygiene standards. The wetroom was very unclean and I could not bare to step into it barefoot. There should be more investment into... More
