Returned to The Palace for a second time. From the moment we arrived everything, and I mean everything has been just perfect. We booked a junior suite this time and have been glad of the extra space. Spent a very lazy few days relaxed by the fantastic pool being taken care of by the lovely bar attendants, Alfred and Baby.... More

A top notch experience - service is excellent, breakfast is remarkable - I can not ever remember being defeated by a buffet breakfast before! It is certainly over the top but if you are going to sun city why not spend a little more and get the best experience. The pool area is lovely and the direct access to the... More

A complete royal experience! The best one I stayed in I would say. There is nothing modest about it....fine details...amazing architecture.. amazing view, food, rooms everything else. You could just spend all your time in the hotel the best in Sun city. We explored all around and realized we could have stayed here longer or spent our maximum time here.

The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast spread was really impressive and delicious. It is very expensive but all the hotels at Sun City are expensive, and you at least get a few extras for you money at this hotel

I did not stay here but came to dine at one of its restaurants. All the staff I met were very accomodating.. from the lady I met at the reception to room guys who showed me the way to the resto.. everyone made me feel welcome. After my meal I went to check out the place. Colonial architecture dominates. The... More

from the outset we were looked after here. Nothing was a problem. Service, room and personnel were all exceptional. Breakfast was simply unbelievable and high tea was excellent. Plume restaurant was slightly disappointing. The views, pools and things to do were mind boggling. This is must to do and I will return.

Not very impressed by this hotel at all. When first built and managed by former owner, I'm sure this was a great hotel. Unfortunately now it has lost the quality it once had. Service, accommodation, facilities and maintenance are all on a downward slope. Has so much potential but will take a lot to fix. An incredible building which deserves... More

Visited the Palace of the Lost City at Sun City. What an amazing place. It's a must see and do. This is an upmarket Hotel and as such be prepared to pay but it's worth it. Stunning decor, first class food, top quality all round.

We were made to feel special, staff were helpful, respectful and approachable at all times nothing was too much trouble. The rooms had all you could want and more, large TV space to relax wonderful view from the window. There was fresh fruit and champagne to welcome us as well as a coffee maker and tea making equipment. Really nice... More
