Keep up the good standards you have at Southern Sun Hotel. It is a good and excellent place to be. Everything else is just up to standard. I however suggest that you put bar fridges in rooms. Keep it Up.

This is a hotel tsgo has forgot about. The rooms are dated beds uncomfortable. It's a shame as we love tsgo hotels but I don't think we will be staying here again. No sleep at all as the beds were so overused they were flat and hard not what you expect from this brand of hotels

The hotel is very dated and the rooms are in desperate need of serious renovations. Our room overlooked the rooftop of another part of the hotel. The hallway leading from the elevator to our room was dark and smelled musty! The hotel only allots you 500 MG of free wifi which we used up a half hour after check in....
