I travelled to Nelspruit with my daughters, and I must say Southern Sun Emnothweni made our mini vacation worthwhile, from service delivery at the reception to the spacious and comfortable room allocated.

My visit was for business purpose but it also felt like a holiday too. The place is just a stone throw from the mall, government offices and all those things. In fact, the environment completes everything, i'll definitely visit this place again.

Apart from (unnecesarily) officious security guard, the casino played host to a wine show and did so effortlessly and well. Nice sized, well appointed facility and close to other amenities. Convenient parking, generally all good.

We stayed one night to break our drive from the Drakensberg to the Kruger and found a very comfortable hotel. From the other guests, it appeared to be very much like a business hotel and afforded that level of comfort. Across the road is an excellent shopping mall with the casino. From security on the gate to reception, we were...

Was a lekker weekend stay. A nice place to stay over when running a marathon. I highly recommend the hotel. Breakfasts are scrumptious. A word of warning though - ask for a room away from the pond in the front of the hotel - the frogs are very noisy.
