Arrived to be told the phones weren’t working. When enquiring about room service was told it was available but I would have to come downstairs to order it. Then found no lifts working. After enquiring from a rather disinterested staff member I was told I could use the staff lift. He then disappeared behind an unmarked door which evidently lead to the said lift. This was in a gloomy space with lights flickering on and off and filled with various bits of kitchen apparatus. It then opened upstairs to another gloomy foyer crowded with old beds. The lift descended first to the basement where it got stuck but where another helpful staff member explained that by putting a piece of paper into the gap near the door it could be forced open. This happened twice which was rather disconcerting. I reported this to management who seemed untroubled by these issues.

Dear RobertA5314 Thank you for your recent visit to the Southern Sun Rosebank and for your time in sharing your experience with us. The Hotels telephone system was hit by a lightning strike which prompted an emergency replacement of all the telephones in the hotel. This has now been resolved. The Elevators have also been a constant problem and they are being replaced as we speak. The replacement of the elevators are scheduled for completing in the next 7 weeks. I would like to apologize and make up for the inconvenience and request if you please contact me directly on the details below . Kind Regards Muhammad Rawat muhammad.rawat@tsogosun.com

This hotel has a very beautiful reception and lounge area. However, the overall experience just does not live up to what one would expect from this type of establishment. I checked in 3 hours ago (in the evening) and already feel frustrated. Re room service: the food was OK, the way in which it was served was OK-with-hiccups, payment is strange and I’m still waiting for someone to collect cash because “you didn’t open a separate room service account so you can’t just sign for it”. Not all the TV channels work. I’m here for work and I regret not booking somewhere more uplifting. I hope breakfast is good. There’s a spa which I might try.

I am currently staying at the hotel. Arrived after dark to 3 miserable faces. Then starving after a long flight, I want to order room service and the phones don't work. Including the switchboard. Eventually I get dressed again and get into the lift to see a simple sign with a number to call (in all fairness the phones were down due to South Africa's loadshedding). I call and order room service which then takes 1 hour and 15 minutes and about 4 phone calls before my food reached me. I am a regular traveller to Johannesburg but I will definitely do my utmost not to stay here again. The last thing you need after travelling for 5 hours is this kind of drama. Other than that the rooms are decent (although the bathrooms are pretty small).

Generally good, reception area is so welcoming. The kitchen was at its busiest and therefore the staff or waiters could not give everybody their undivided attention. the was one chef who was rude and communicated to us in Isizulu though we indicated to her that we were foreigners.
