Hotel is beautiful. Our room was lovely, bed comfortable, everything clean. Service from front desk, bell hop, concierge and especially their available transportation was exceptional! Hotel arranged for airport transfers and then transportation to different areas in the city. We were very well cared for by (Ernest?) who went out of his way to be sure all our trips were...

This venue is elegant in the old style of the Plaza in NY, old fashioned and very convenient. There is no fault to be found in all the staff; personable, friendly, patient, diligent, thorough, instantly attentive and infinitely forbearing, unflappable and indulgent. The front desk is very considerate e.g. Sanu Ndlovu and resilient to demands of all kinds, the duty...

The hotel is ridiculously priced. Rooms and conference venue included. The food is buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it's not the best. It sits out for a long time so by the time you eat it it's dry. You are given a Wi-Fi password for your room but you can't even connect to it. The wi-fi in the...

My daughter and I stayed at the Sunnyside Hotel to be close to Wits university. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The buffet dinner had a huge delicious selection. The buffet breakfast was just as good. The staff were friendly and helpful. This is a beautiful historical building with manicured gardens. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed in the new block overlooking the Car Park, and above the function room.
