I am always impressed by Southern Sun hotels. Their rooms are very comfortable and the amenities are always excellent. Their bathrooms are always comfortable and the water pressure excellent. Beds are exceptionally comfortable.

The hotel atmosphere is very good. When you are very tired once you enter the hotel your body is automatically switch to a relaxed mood . you feel like you are at the small heaven. You feel like you pulling your shoes off. You feel very peaceful.

Travelling from Komatipoort at night through Nelspruit, this Hotel provided an ideal sport for an overnight stay. Right next to the N4 HIGHWAY it provided easy access and exit out of Nelspruit and it is easy to locate.
