Being a expat South African, I used to spend many a weekend at Sun City both as a child and an adult and I've stayed in every hotel at Sun City.
I even recently purchased the vacation club timeshare as it's just so lovley.
This time around we decided to say at the Sun City Hotel as all the other hotels were booked up. We arrived at a room - it was filthy and it stank, I dont think it had been vacumed for months, toliet wasnt even flushed...it was simply revolting.
I went to speak to the managment to agreed to give us aother room and so called "upgraded" up to a larger, nicer room. It was certainly better but I would rate it as a 1 star. The sleeper sofer was so thin and mangy that you couldnt sleep on it. My 4 year old niece even cried after trying to sleep on it and ended up sharing the bed with her mom.
Even the breakfast - I felt like I was back at "veldschool" or in the UK they would liken it to "school dinners"...queuing for horrible food, flies all over it...we just had to leave and go somewhere else for breakfast (Gary play country club does a lovley breakfast - thats more than edible).
Now WHAT has happened to this hotel...I've stayed here many times, years ago and it's gone from a really top luxuary hotel to one that I would now not stay in if you even paid me £100 a night to stay there - NO WAY! This hotel was dirty, in desperate need of a make over and completly overated!
