Southern Sun Monte Casino is a great holiday resort as there are activities for the whole family. Customer Service was mostly good. Breakfasts are enjoyable. Location is great. However hotel should promote activities and events available at Monte Casino by use of vouchers and invites.

Thank you for the comfort and the joy of us enjoying a contentful breakfast and a pleasurable stay at your hotel.
The Tsogo Sun Casinos - the only downside recently as the machines at these casinos are not paying out to the patrons. The Tsogo Sun Management needs to review their slot machines. My sincere thanks to the Manager Mr Du Preez and to Millisant at the Check-in Desk.Thank you. Gita Ragbir

The hotel was immaculate with friendly and helpful staff. The room seemed smaller than expected but this was no problem as we were out most of the time. Breakfast was amazing and the Sharks team made it all that much more special.

Stopped in here with my wife on a business trip for 2 nights. The Hotel is hard to find at Montecasino with few signs to direct you. The check-in was quick and painless and the room was ok and well appointed. The problem comes with the bath room, which has this modern window over the bath into the bed-room. You can close the window with a wooden shutter but this does not stop the noise from the bathroom coming through. I really do not want to listen to my wife and more she does not want to listen to me in the bathroom. Also the bathroom had these modern glass walls between the shower and the toilet, they leaked like a sieve and after a shower the toilet room was flooded. Also, the door handle to the bathroom also slammed into the wall when you closed the door and if you are not careful you catch your fingers in this or the handle breaks and falls off - who designs all of this non-functioning bathroom?

Internet is restricted and you cannot get onto your corporate file servers, so you cannot connect to the office servers and so basically you cannot work if you have to update them and then you have to purchase your own internet.

If you don't mind the lion sculptures at the gates, then this hotel will not disappoint you. It is pleasant and comfortable, excellent breakfast and across the street from the shopping mall. The small flaws are related to internet and bathroom. Internet is free up to 500 mb per day, but you cannot watch youtube and many other blocked sites. So, You will have to buy 500 mb and watch youtube, for example.

Bathroom is very modern but too acoustic and also leaking water in the shower. As it is modern with flat shower floor, water comes next door to the toilet floor.
