My two night work related stay at the hotel was quite amazing. My room was spacious, clean and neat. It over- looked the pool area. The view was tranquil.

Southern Sun is a very good hotel compared to others . The rooms are very clean, food very fresh and appetising, it's cool and it is a good place to be especially during summer because of its swimming pools.

The service I received from all the staff I interacted with was very good and professional. Please convey my sincere words of appreciation to all of them. My observation was that the restaurant was short staffed. I hope this will be attended as it has a potential to affect the serivice in a negative way.
