What a combination! Good tasting food, lovely view from my room, the soothing sound of the water at the pool side, friendly staff. I would advise everybody to stay at this hotel to experience the warmth and welcoming stay at Southern Sun Pretoria - my home away from home!

Exceptional service and friendly staff. Just a few kilometres away from the Union Building and Pretoria Zoo.Chef prepared excellent vegetarian meals for us and surprised my husband with a delicious chocolate, vanilla and strawberry egg free cake on his birthday. Highly recommended.

There were scratches on the bathroom counter and the toilet seat was chipped. This made it look dirty. They told me it was because of... More

There is nothing good I can say about this hotel. Perhaps the fact that I did not see one other guest may tell the story.

Southern Sun Pretoria was very comfortable. The staff were excellent especially at reception. I was warmly welcomed by Mr George at reception who was very friendly, helpful and highly professional. Dinner (buffet) was nice, there was more chicken, pork and fatty beef stew.I would highly recommend this establishment to friends and colleagues.
