People were friendly and helpful, the room was spacious, clean and everything we would want.

Excellent place to stay when traveling through JHB or meeting visitors and friends off early morning flights. The 15min shuttle service was excellent and on time. Staff were lovely as ever ...just as if we were VIP regulars

Our stay at this hotel was wonderful. There is a shuttle service to and from the airport every 15 minutes. They even take you right up to your departure gate! The reception was warm and welcoming, the porter was super friendly and the food in the restaurant was great! Overall great evening.

Having stayed at other Southern Sun hotels I had high expectations of the rooms here. However the rooms are very basic and plain. My bathroom was very outdated and needed a refit. Some of the carpets around the hotel look very worn and dirty. Lobby nice tho - but I'm not here for that! Positive points are good wifi and... More

The Southern Sun is a short shuttle ride from the airport and the shuttle service is 24hrs and every 15 minutes which is really handy. The hotel is modern, the restaurant is OK, the bar is good but fairly quiet and the rooms are spacious. But some details are lacking. I had multiple problems it's the key card and when... More

I am always happy to stay at the above hotel as the service is excellent and the staff always friendly. I am comfortable and my needs are attended to. The food selection is wonderful, especially as I am a strict vegetarian. The proximity to the airport is a huge plus, especially as there is a bus that takes and fetches... More

Every special request (baby cot, baby bath, fridge for antibiotics, and and) was met with a smile and sorted out within minutes. Food is amazing all-round, and the rooms are... More
