4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The service received at the hotel was of good quality. The rooms are very neat and are cleaned thoroughly. The hotel is situated in a very user friendly are where you can walk around anytime of the day without any difficulties. My most favourite moment of the was when they served beryani on Tuesday which is my favourite meal.

I have visited this hotel in June. To be frank my stay was not pleasant. I have previously stayed at the Garden Court in Hatfield Pretoria and compared to this hotel the Southern Sun is very bad. The rooms though big and spacious is old and urgently needs an upgrade. The service from reception to the restauran and house keeping... More

The room was very good, neat and clean. The toilets are bit far with the conference places which will take more time to reach them. Overall I really enjoyed staying in the hotel with excellence service

From my last visit some time ago, the hotel rooms got a rather welcoming upgrade. Room service menu however does not cater for light meals which I found to be quite strange. Otherwise overall room service was excellent. Breakfast is this establishments highlight, its excellent! They also cater for breakfast smoothies which I thought was a nice touch. Overall experience... More

I stayed for four nights for business. The hotel was comfortable and the staff organized friendlly chaffeur-driven service well. The gym was a nice plus. Breakfast had a wide selection of food, including fresh fruit that I also liked. The room I had first was towards a busy junction, and it was noisy from early morning. I got a quiet... More

This hotel serves a specific purpose. It is located nearby many of the government institutions in Pretoria and within walking distance of the Competition Commission for example. It is a short taxi ride from either of the two Gautrain stations in Pretoria and can be easily located if you are arriving in your own vehicle with ample off street, secure... More

In days gone by this was a great hotel. The rooms (I opted for a Superior Room) are spacious but somewhat in need of a revamp - you can see the evidence of age on the wooden furniture. The room was decently appointed but not exceptional. The rooms are not on the same par as other Southern Sun hotels or... More
