“Your average HIEx”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

Check in was efficient and friendly.

The room was on the smallish size. It was clean and functional. The power sockets covered most international plugs, however they and the desk light were loose and came out of their fittings. The a/c was poor.

The breakfast was good and the tables cleared promptly, however it can become a bit overcrowded.

The hotel has a small pool.

Small 30Mb free WiFi allowance, after which it is chargeable. However I did notice after I used the free allowance in the room I could then use the free allowance again in the lobby.
Tip - In most of the HIEx's I've used the renewal time is midnight so you can use the first free allowance in the evening and then again in the morning.

The hotel has direct access to an adjacent shopping center, beyond this there seems little to do or see in the area.

South Africa is supposed to be very-very dangerous and criminal. Staying at Sunnypark area was told to be really risky. Well, not at all! we walked a little bit around the hotel, took the taxi to train station, etc.

The hotel itself is a very good example of Holiday Inn Chain. Breakfast, wifi (though only 30 Mb free after that you are to go to ask for a voucher), efficient rooms (take ones facing the pool!), a roof pool. There is the entrance to the mall on the 2 floor where you can buy everything.

I should praise the manager: as platinum member we were allowed for late check-in, at 4 p.m.

Good standard size clean rooms. Nice view from the top levels. Breakfast is good, there is no restaurant but there are plenty in the adjacent mall.
Parking available in the mall also (level 6 gives directly onto hotel lobby).

All rooms have a european/uk/us electrical wall socket which is handy. Internet: first 30Mb is free, then you need to pay.

All in all a good hotel just not very centrally located but in a neighbourhood where there is nothing to see or do.

Check in was quick and easy. Rooms are small but efficient. Bed was superb. Internet is very expensive. View from my room was awesome. Breakfast was simple, Nothing fancy just enough to get you up and going.

Overall the stay was pleasant and great value for money.

Holiday Inn Pretoria Sunnypark is a good property in Pretoria. The rooms are decently sized with excellent views from the upper floors. The hotel is attached to the Sunnypark shopping center which features some nice restaurant and fast food options. Parking is conveniently located in the mall parking deck and has a security guard overnight.

The only complaint was that the staff were slightly clueless about how to process a Priority Club reward night. Wound up wasting about 15 minutes for them to sort everything out, but they comped our parking as a goodwill gesture to make up for this. Very friendly staff also. All in all a good stay.
