variety/choice of food available at the restaurant is very limited the service during meals and outside on the patio leaves a lot to be desired however, location and rooms are excellent the variety of drinks at the bar could also be improved

This is one of the best Southern Sun hotels in the Sandton area. The rooms were very comfortable and the staff were so friendly and helpful. I would definitely be coming back in the near future. I will also recommend it to my family and friends.

I stayed at the Southern Sun Katherine Street for the second time, because I like the style and fact that it's not a typical highrise hotel. The staff is always helpful and after a while the ladies at the breakfast can read your mind for a hot breakfast suggestion :-) I'll definitely come back

The reception has 2 bottles of cold water (and that is all!) which is very needed because there is no aircon , and the glasses were used before. I almost had to beg for a glass .

The staff has professionalism and give quality service. Hotel is well situated away from the city centre but closer to Sandton, Rosebank and Midrand, easy access to the main motor free ways. The hotel is very clean and the restaurant has good quality food with very good service from staff.
