AVANI Lesotho Hotel & Casino

If you are a vegetarian: beware! There really are no vegetarian options despite all the menus available online indicating that there are. The room I stayed in had a view of the air conditioning units and was quite noisy. It was clean and average sized. The bathroom had a worry drain smell and the shower was faulty. Also, a hotel charging R1800 per night should have free wifi!

Spent three days here - clean rooms, friendly staff and reasonable meals. A tip - take your own bottled water to your room! The Asian restaurant is recommended, had a lovely meal. An overall good experience, will stay here again.

Room Tip: 4th floor was pleasant and above any noise levels

This is a terrible hotel, very stingy and with poor service. The room was tiny and had no glass, no bottled water, the coffee maker was dirty and the towels were the size of hand towels. The morning I left reception missed my wake-up call and the receptionist was sleeping in the back office!

Room Tip: If you absolutely must stay here, be sure to use the safe and ask for a room on an upper level.

Stayed one night on business. Staff were very friendly, the room comfortable and clean. The hot and cold water connections in room 417 are reversed. At first I thought no hot water in the hand basin until I realised the error. Buffet dinner and breakfast offered a wide selection of well prepared food. Had to request milk/coffee creamer in the room as housekeeping had overlooked it. WiFi should be complimentary in a four star hotel and WiFi vouchers at reception were out of stock at 18h30 on day of arrival which is not acceptable. I will return.

I stayed in the Lesotho Sun in February for a week. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and the room was beautiful. The meals were of the highest standard. The lobby was a great place to sit and relax with several sofas. It has a little shop that sells everything such as local art work and souvenirs, daily papers and sweets and icecream. The swimming pool and gym were great. There was a taxi service and the reception desk people were only too willing to help with arranging a taxi for me. The people were so friendly and helpful in the hotel. I will only stay in the lesotho sun if i ever get the chance to visit the beautiful city of maseru and its people again

Room Tip: I stayed in a room starting with a 4 with a balcony overlooking the entrance to the hotel.

The Lesotho Sun is a good hotel, but you feel something is missing.

On the positive side:
Rooms are clean, the view from the restaurants / pool is great, there's a nice gym. Business facilities (meeting rooms) are very good. You feel there is a lot of potential there.

On the negative side:
Buffet for all meals are good but quite repetitive if you stay for more than 2 days (which was my case).
Rooms lack charm (view on the AC system for a large number of rooms)
Service is sometimes very slow (45 minutes to get a sandwich) but fortunately that is not always the case.

All in all, this hotel is a good option for business travelers (or if you like casino) but rather expensive for what it is...

I had the pleasure of staying at the Lesotho sun for an elongated period (close to a total 50 days on two trips). While there is not much to choose from in Lesotho, the Lesotho Sun gave me a comfortable room, fair service and the food was not that bad. They had useful amenities that made my elongated stay comfortable. On the negative side, I must say it was a bit too steep and unlike most hotels I have been to - they did not have a customer loyalty program for people who spent time in their hotel but rather reserved it patrons of the casino.
