Our family of four adults and two small children had a wonderful two night stay at this recently refurbished hotel. The staff were superb, from the doorman to the manager everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. Also need to mention the breakfasts, which are not to be missed!

The place resonates with free spiritual behavior. Surrounded with greenery and a very suburban feel the Sun Hotel has a tremendous Wow factor! good staff, helpful reception. Breakfast was really good which had Indian Tea to offer. Indians will love the place for the Asian connect, I suppose.

It brought back great memories for me from my childhood days as I recall staying at the hotel more than 20 years ago, when the Sandton Sun was the premier hotel in the area. The hotel seems to have undergone a recent refurbishment,...
