The porter was waiting for us when we arrived so we didn't have to carry anything - he was friendly and fun for the kids. The staff at reception welcomed us in a friendly manner. Our room was clean and...

If you are travelling down fro Satara in the Kruger to Johannesburg, it's quite a long drive and a long day. We all found it relaxing to overnight at Emnotweni. Very comfortable rooms, good food and the security is good.

I had an excellent experience and stay in the Southern Sun Emnotweni. The room was spaceous, neat and the WiFi network was also fast. I did not sit for the breakfast though because I only slept for one night and had to rush to the airport since I was flying early
