Do away with Smoking Rooms
I was assigned to a smoking room despite indicating that I don’t smoke and preferred non-smoking room. I had to endure a pungent smell throughout the night.

Mostly good
Always a good stay .... the aircon unit was however making lots of noise during the night, resulting in less of a good night's rest.

Great Location, friendly staff
We only used the room for sleeping as we were visiting family, but it needed some touching up. Paint on back of bathroom doors chipped off. Drain for shower was loose. Not enough towels or coffee in room. And not enough tables for the morning breakfast rush. But the staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was good and location was perfect.

good family hotel
Great supply run trip with the family. Nice comforting hotel with adjoining rooms, nice pool, play area, and dining. Love having the mall right across the street to easily visit during the stay.

Good 6,0
A large chain hotel.
This is a very large modern 'chain' hotel. We were allocated a room next to the large reception lobby that was extremely noisy and smelt of popcorn from the nearby vending machine. We eventually were able to obtain another room on the 4th floor that was a standard room.

Southern Sun Emnotweni
Very good service and the buffet dinner was good value for money. The pool and garden looked very relaxing but the “fitness facilities” were extremely basic. Just one very small room with a couple of cardio machines and some small weights.
