In good location and stunning garden. It's a must see hotel. I like their shuttle service as well, very efficient. It's close to the mall and gautrain station. I really had a lovely holiday experience at southern sun.

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...

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your review of your experience at the Hotel. Unfortunately if you are settling your account by cash, we do ask for the full pre payment up front and inform guests who do not wish to put a deposit down for extras that they will not be able to sign bills to their rooms. I apologise...

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.

This is a good sized hotel situated across the road from a small shopping centre and a very short drive from the Sandton City mall. The standard rooms are a good size and the suites are wonderful. The restaurant is excellent - very good food and attentive service. We enjoyed all our meals eaten at the restaurant. I would definitely...

I have always enjoyed my stay at this place. Its really like my second home and I enjoy the outside rooms as they are very homely and feel like home awy from home. I have noticed though that when one makes a booking through central reservation membership status is not verified. This needs to be rectified.

To me it was an excellent service. I will recommend other business peers and even use the hotel for my leisure when in holiday or private trips. I was very much glad to notice that no noise at all was coming to the room.

I stayed in this hotel twice as part of a tour, and found it pleasant. The room was comfortable and there was a good choice of food for breakfast. It is a shame such places have to be gated but that's Johannesburg.
