I recently had to overnight in Maseru while on business and we decided to stay at the Lesotho Sun - a place I had last stayed at 10 years ago. I must admit I was quite impressed with the hotel as it has been freshened up quite bit whislt still keeping its basic structure. They really do try hard and I think it is payng off. It certainly seemed to be a lot busier than it was when I wa slast there. The rooms are greatly improved and all seem to have had a facelift. While it probably doesn't compare with the most upmarket hotels in the region it is clean and comfortable and offers the business traveller most of what they need. They do have a few issues which they should address and I have tried to touch on these below - but it did not detract form the stay which overall was very good. The rooms are well appointed but then are spoilt by the quality of the fittinings in the bathrooms (they have cheap and nasty shower heads so water sprays all over the show when showering). The bar service was also terrible in the downstairs bar - which also serves the Casino (which is probably why it s slow). They do offer wifi but you have to buy a voucher but the minimum value of voucher was M180 for 500 mb. When you just want to check a few emails this seems ludicrous. My suggestion would be to add about M10 to each room and then give free wifi - or soemthing like that. The gym was very well equpped - one of the ebest around but some of the equipment needs a service. I ate at the buffett and the food was outstanding value for money - it was delicious and cheap (when last did anyone pay M150 for a buffett?). The breakfast, as has become a norm for this group was excellent. Overall one or two tweaks and this could be a fantastic hotel again.
