Probably the worst dinner buffet I have eaten, or tried to eat. Tired food that looks like it was left over from the Sunday brunch. The service was good however the food was lacklustre and as a vegetarian the only choice was rice or potatoes. To be fair the lettuce I ate was ok. But I will never eat there...

Staff at the reception were very warm. since it was a business stay, they also informed me of the corporate discount for staff from my organisation. I enjoyed the breakfast and the staff was eager to render any assistance.

Southern Sun is truly a homely place for me. The staff from the security, concierge, reception, housekeeping, laundry, and IT are awesome. It's always nice returning back there even after a long time.

Enjoyed every bit of my stay and would go back if the need arises. Hotel staffs are well trained and professional. I had issues with the coolness of the air conditioner and called the reception for help. The maintenance team came in immediately to take care of the situation.
