This hotel in particular had ample parking, a friendly welcoming smile upon check-in and quick service. A nice touch was the popcorn and slush in the reception 1 evening. The rooms are quite dated and in a serious... More

This is a nice hotel. I always stay at this hotel whenever I am in Nelspruit. The room are well cleaned and looked after. It is an ideal place to stay when you are on business. The food need some serious improvements though, especially breakfast. There isn't much variety. The good thing is its next to a mall where there... More

It was not a WOW experience - as most of the Southern Sun hotels are. But it was OK. I found the staff more willing to please than management. But it was still OK - the employees made it OK. I almost did not eat dinner on Tuesday night (2 December) as management had taken a lot more people than... More

We stayed at this hotel after being offered a complimentary stay for two nights by Southern Sun as a result of a very bad experience at one of their hotels in Durban. The staff and management of the hotel made this a ten star experience. The service and attention to detail was absolutely out of this world. My best stay... More

The rooms are noisy and you only get one bar of soap for a 4 day stay! Breakfast is a mess as they do not clear tables for the new guests as you arrive, so you sit down at a dirty table. The fresh fruit is cut in front of you on a dirty plastic cutting board, when they replenish.... More
