No doubt this is the nicest hotel in town. Beautiful property and nicely appointed rooms. However, having previously stayed in several Sun International hotels, they definitely need to straighten up their act, service wise.

Pros: Modern amenities, nice comfortable room, hot water and heating. Doorman was helpful.

Cons:
- Airport transfer was costly and service was every inefficient, you need to go search for the driver upon arrival, load your own luggage in the trunk and the driver demanded payment upon arrival.

-Not too helpful check- in; the staff was very busy chit-chatting among themselves and lack of enthusiasm answering questions about the amenities/service of the hotel. Some requests were ignored.

- A hint of smoking odor in our bathroom even it was on the non-smoking floor.

- Restrictive dining hours; restaurants open at 6:30pm for dinner, was told that we could not order room service beforehand.

- Breakfast spread was acceptable. Lots of restaurant staff standing around but not doing anything.

- Fee for Wi-Fi

I stayed in the presidential suite at this hotel for one night when I was in Lesotho for business. As I arrived I was not impressed at all by the door man and porter who merely looked at us and did not assist us with opening door and carrying our luggage. We were 2 ladies and were carrying quite a number of things with us. After checking in, we settled in, in the beautiful room prepared for us. I was quiet puzzled by the hotel staff who were entering the suite willy-nilly fixing or bringing things without knocking. We were also unimpressed by the fact that the wi-fi was not free and when we got the voucher, you could only use it for one device at a time. So, I couldn't access my phone and iPad at the same time.

I've been coming to Lesotho for 6 years & Staying at this hotel which is considered the bestbhotl in town. The hotel is very comfortable, great rooms, friendly staff plenty of hot water, & good heating in the winter. However, the food leaves much to be desired and the service is non existent. When a request is made, one needs to follow up several times to get service. Once the responsible person has made a phone call, they think their duty is done. There is no follow-up. I requested a chair for my room and after one hour it took a return trip to to front desk to ask again. My husband calls me skype to land, but often the front desk does not answer the phone. we now skype to cell. These issues are indicative, but not unusual. Technically I am in a nonsmoking room. However, clients in the rooms around me smoke and nothing is done to deter the other clients from smoking in the non-smoking areas. The ventilation system allows my room to be filled with cigarette smoke. It is very off-putting. Needless to say that with better training, this really could bee a 4 star hotel.

The Lesotho Sun Hotel offers good, clean, and comfortable accommodation in Maseru. The staff are friendly and efficient. BUT the most impressive feature of the hotel is its restaurant which serves THE BEST lamb chops I have eaten to date. Absolutely divine!

The staff is great. The dinner gets boring after a few days but the breakfast buffet is lovely. The bed is comfortable, the casino is amusing and the view of the valley is second to none. The resident manager is VERY involved with all activities.
