Stayed here last winter. It's just wonderful. The bathroom is the size of most budget hotel. The life sized sculptures of African Big Five at various wings are captivating enough if one did not catch a glimpse of the real ones in the wild. The city is just simply beautiful and aptly named.

I stayed at the Palace of the lost city, Sun City resort during my South African holidays. This was the first destination in South Africa. It really was super cool experience to stay here! The property makes you feel like the Kings & Queens!!!! There are three other well known resorts within Sun City. People living at any other resort... More

If your aiming for relaxation or a fun time, a visit to sun city is not complete without a stay in the palace. The care for detail is just amazing. In my opinion stay for 3 nights to get the best out of the place. And no matter which room category you chose it will be just perfect ( we... More

Stayed for one night due to a complimentary upgrade. This hotel is expensive and I would not pay to stay here. The buildings are grand and gaudy but the rooms are disappointing. Although big, the room looked very dated with old furniture and terracotta tiles. The simple amenities like being able to turn on/off lights from bedside was missing. No... More

November 2002 An excellent hotel. Rooms were spacious and the quality of the all the amenities in the hotel was outstanding, service and food were excellent. The staff were efficient and charming and there must be very few hotels around the world which could compare with this hotel.

In my life I have visited several amazing hotels – the Fairmont Lake Louis, Banff, Eau Clair and Edmonton, and other hotels around the world. None of these are grander than the Palace. Begun in 1979, it is a grand old lady, opulent beyond most people’s dreams. Compared to Vegas because it started as a gambling paradise, this is not.... More

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and wow were we spoiled. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalties. Nothing to small or to big. Our concierge was professional, friendly and helpful at all times. We were upgraded to a beautifull spacious room with welcoming fruit, excellent wine and sweets. At breakfast Margeret our waitress took special interest... More

I returned to The Palace at the Lost City for the first time in about 6 or 7 years, what a disappointment. It is the most spectacular hotel that still takes one's breath away as you take that final turn towards the front door. It makes such an impression on any traveller, but sadly the standard of the actual offering... More

I stayed at the 4th floor at the Lost city from the August 4th to Wednesday 6th. The room was clean, large and very comfortable. They seemed a be a bit stingy on the shampoo and soaps. The breakfast selection was outstanding as was the quality but the water and waitress service was very poor. `i received a knife that... More
