Stayed at the Southern Sun ORT for a night - en route Cape Town. Decent hotel with very good facilities but I guess its 'transit hotel' status has taken some of its charm away. Staff were warm and it was lovely to see them celebrate one of their colleagues birthdays over breakfast with some of the hotel guests.
Bathroom is a bit small for a hotel of its class but that was compensated by a large wardrobe & storage space. The bed was heavenly. One of the sockets in my room didn't function. Breakfast was awesome if a little overstated.
Overall, a good hotel thats probably lost its soul and charm to the transit business.
