My client books me into this establishment at least once a year over the last 20 years. This hotel has gone down in looks and service levels since my first visit. In its hay-day this must have been a great venue for a family getaway. The lush court-yard garden is poorly maintained, the reception staff was friendly, but not very... More

This Hotel now needs renovating. They still serve a decent breakfast and most staff are friendly. Various problems are caused by lenghty power outages - this needs to be addressed; a cold shower in the morning is not acceptable nor is the use of candles throughout the night. The large musty rooms with balcony have reached their sell by date... More

When I entered Sundown Ranch the service was very good, however when we entered our rooms we were appalled at the conditions of the bathroom. We had no hot water, the shower heads are very old and need to be upgraded. Air conditioning must be upgraded. We had no housing for the doom mats but mats were provided. Please try... More

Chalets were out dated, rooms are extremely hot with plenty of mosquitoes. Poor quality. Kitchen was horrible. Only plus is the close location to Sun City. Pool was extremely dirty. Never ever again. No thanks

Sundown Ranch needs serious maintenance and renovation, but remains a good, clean hotel. The staff are helpful and pleasant, and the bedrooms spacious and well equipped; air conditioners and TV work well. Clean towels, soap and other toiletries were neatly laid out on the beds. The restaurant décor is also a bit tired, but the food is good and wholesome,... More

The hotel is clearly a bit worn down. There were loose tiles on the upper floor - a tripping hazard. The bathroom need renovation but was clean. Beware showering with the tiny shower curtains as the floor flooded the first time I used it. Directing the spray at the wall helped! Our final morning the hot water was broken and... More

We went to this so-called 3 Star Hotel. It should be a minus 3 Star. This hotel is falling apart outside and inside. Sheets and towels, although old and grey, were clean. Bathroom flooded each time we had a shower. On arrival we had to pay in full before we had key to our room. That should have sent us... More

We spent a family weekend at Sun City and decided to try out the Sundown Ranch for a long weekend stay. Well with all due respect my expectations soarly declined, it reminded me of a place not invested in enough yet it boasted so much potential. Nevertheless with no airconditioning, shoddy furntiure, mosquito's for Africa and living on the ranch... More

If you're looking for something close to Sun City, without the high price tag, this is worth a look. Although nothing fancy (3 stars), the rooms are large and clean, the staff friendly and the meals are good.

I was pleasantly suprised after expecting the worst. The Staff were friendly. My room was spacious with a large bed (new firm mattress). The Bathroom just made the grade and needed revamping. Each room has a balcony or a porch(ground floor) with tables and chairs , all rooms overlook a central pool and garden area. The breakfast was a feast... More
