We only had the pleasure of staying a night here because my company had one of the gala dinner during our South Africa trip. The hotel is a little bit old but still bearable. However, the Internet is very slow. You also have to pay for it. The rooms are quite clean, nice and spacious. The buffet breakfast are fairly... More

We spent a couple of week days in one of the spacious and well appointed chalets near the 3rd green of the golf course. Very clean rooms with comfortable beds. Lovely patio and decor in chalet. Unfortunately we had to leave early due to personal problem. The reception staff were excellent and friendly. Goodwill was particularly helpful! A couple of... More

We stayed here in April 2015, and we left feeling extremely disappointed. The cost of this hotel is astronomical for what you are getting, and I cannot believe that they charge that much for such a run down hotel, and I have no idea how this hotel can be categorized as a 4 star. We recently returned from Italy, and... More

This is a nice place to stay, with activities for young and old and for a family to do together. We as a family went for a Segway gliding tour through the scenic surrounds of Sun City. We saw the Gary Player Country Club golf course and some local wildlife. This was a few hours well spend as a family.... More

Attended a company conference there. Facilities generally average compared to other conferencing venues in the area. Food served during conference could be at best described as adequate. Staff may be described as professional. Overall, left with the sense that this had just been another business conference that had been processed by the facility.

We only ended up in Sun City by default on our way to Pilannesburg and it was a pleasant surprise. Yes there is a casino but you don't have to go there. We swam in the pool at the back of the hotel, went to High Tea as the Lost City Hotel, visited the aviary, the wave pool and walked... More

Amazing hotel and expansive grounds. First class service and experience in such a wonderful setting. Truly a breath of fresh air and escape from the ordinary. Would love to return again and would highly recommend travelers.
