Rooms were comfortable if somewhat dated. Beds were very good. Old fashioned TV remote took a lot of coaxing to get it to work, and minor things in room lke loose soap diah and wall switchfalling off the wall are not things I would have expected.Food is of good quality but terribly expensive, especially for children. I presume the prices are to cater for International travellers. Breakfast was very good in selection and quality. I was extremely annoyed when asked to pay for my pakring on checking out. In the room info book, it notes that basement parking will be charged for, and no mention is made of the outside open parking. The parking attendant at the exit gate told me that residents do not pay for parking. When booking on the website, there was no mention of open parking being an 'extra'. The excuse given to me by reception was that Southern Sun has to rent the premises from the Airport, so they have to charge for parking!! Huh - I have never had to pay for open parking at any other Southern Sun before, and this is just a rip off that left a sour taste. The hotel will provide a free shuttle service to the Airport, yet guests with vehicles get penalised.
