Our room overlooked the greenery and pool and gave us a sense of an oasis in the city. The complementary shuttle to Nelson Mandela Square was efficient and friendly and on schedule. Overall the experience at this hotel leaves a pleasant memory with us.

My Home from home. Love all the staff always smiling & willing to help you with any requirements. The free shuttle up to Sandton city is great. Rob the owner of Kelsey's Restuarant at the hotel went above & beyond to help organise tea & cakes for my old Aunty.

Always feel relaxed and at home with the fireside type atmosphere. I especially like the lounge atmosphere around the reception area and te poolside. Even in the dining room the settees lend the place a Boutique Hotel feel. A library would be a great addition?? Great proximity t shopping and entertainment with reasonable shuttle service to Gautrain and Sandton.

Not my favourite Southern Sun hotel as I think it lacks any atmosphere, though as the weather was reasonable it was nice to sit outside on occasions. However I did find it hard to attract the attention of waiting staff at the end of the evening when outside as we seemed to be neglected whilst they were cleaning and putting...

An excellent hotel, well located next to Atholl Square, with it's shops and excellent restaurants. There is a hotel shuttle to Mandela Square, a couple of minutes away. The Southern Sun doesn't stand out on search engines or maps but is an excellent choice! I honestly couldn't fault it.

I had a terrible experience. The hotel staff demanded that I pay for services as I took them. I had a funny experience soon after Dinner. A staff member came to my room to ask for payment even after I signed off the bill. She said that the restaurant was separate from the hotel and as such they could not...

Reviewed 13 March 2017

A good hotel overall but I would not give it four star if I have to compare it to other Southern Sun hotels. The breakfast is certainly not up to that level. It is similar to a Garden Court breakfast. The courtesy bus to Sandton Square is very convenient but last pick up is at 6:30 which is very early.
