“Decent hotel with great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

I've only stayed at this hotel in Maseru, but it seemed like the best choice of the lot. You get really nice views since you're tucked away on a mountain and the chinese restaurant downstairs is pretty good.

The internet is annoying though because you have to keep buying data packages and they are often sold out when you need to recharge.

My experiences the two times I stayed at the hotel was remarkable. The stay with no exceptions was great. All of the staff seemed to go out of their way to make my stay comfortable. The food was well prepared, was presented beautifully. The rooms were clean and serviced daily. The grounds beautiful and kept well manicured. In short my time at the hotel made my stay very pleasant.

Set on the hillside in Maseru, the views from this hotel are stunning. The staff is warm, friendly and attentive, and the food in the restaurant is excellent (thank you, Chef Rambo!). We stayed for a week in early March and understood quickly why it is touted as the best hotel in Maseru. I would not stay anywhere else.

I had a group from the US at the Lesotho Sun in March 2013. As usual, the staff was wonderful. They always are so welcoming and helpful. It made our travellers who had never been to Africa feel very much at home. In Lesotho, you can't go wrong with the Lesotho Sun! Thanks to all who made our trip extra special!!!!

We do like this hotel for location and Chinese restaurant is very good ... we stayed for 1 night 4 days ago....
but then ...
We arrived today for second visit on 18th April. At 2pm.
The guy at reception was rude and arrogant.
He had a 4 letter name. He told us to wait like 20 mins while he looked for a room as they were all "booked "
.. we knew he was just posturing and trying to look important. He actually seemed totally disinterested in helping us.
We then left hotel and went to lancers inn.

Please management ...put 4 people at reception.
This is the face of yr business. If u mess up reception u loose money.
Anyway its still best hotel in maseru but reception is beyond terrible.

My stay was necessitated by industrial action throughout both Sun International hotels in Maseru. I was upgraded to Lesotho Sun although the booking was originally at Maseru Sun. A number of the staff were working their first day on the job ! This did test my patience when it took 3 people to manage an order for one bottle of cold still water. Also 15 minutes to arrange a simple bill. What a difference a day makes as by the second day the confidence of the new team was growing.
The room on the 5th floor was great with a view out of town towards the sandstone cliff. Sadly there was no hot water on the first morning - apparently for the whole hotel. When I enquired at reception they were working on an element ?
Buffet meals are good value but would become very dull over a lengthy stay. I did not try the Chinese a la carte restaurant which looked great and does offer a different experience.
After the warnings on this site about the wifi I opted for the small business centre charging R20 for 30 minutes internet connection which worked well.
