Durban, South Africa

The perfect stopover after a long drive from PE en route to Durban. Spacious room, awesome shower and comfortable bed. The dark curtains allow no light in allowing for a wonderful sleep. Adjoined to a mall is a real convenience for a choice of supper.

The well established Southern Sun Bloemfontein in the city of roses offers guests a warm welcome in very convenient and tranquil surroundings. The Mimosa Mall is a welcome neighbour and the hotel is pleasantly quiet, although it is in the heart of the metropolis. I arrived on Friday 13th (I am not superstitious now) and had to attend an event...

This is by far the best over-nighter hotel in Bloem that knows how to handle the Gautengers returning from holiday. All the staff are relaxed, friendly and eager to make the stay as comfortable as possible. The check in was quick and efficient - even though they were having power problems. The breakfast is awesome - good quality Southern Sun...

We decided to break our drive home by overnighting in Bloemfontein. After an Internet search and call to Southern Sun we found this hotel to be best value for money. The room was spacious and comfortable. Our request for a cot was immediately seen to. The relaxing sleep was just what we needed and the breakfast which was included geared...

There were a number of issues: 1. The airconditioning didn't work, and this was in mid-summer, so I couldn't get to sleep until 2 AM 2. I reported the AC not working to reception, they said it would be attended to. I also reported a light was flickering in the bathroom and he said he would get maintenance to sort...

We stayed at this hotel as an overnight stopover on our return home to Johannesburg. I would rate our experience as "average stay at an average hotel" The hotel reception staff member we dealt with could do with some training in dealing with guests - I enquired about headache tablets and received an abrupt response about hotel policy not allowing...

Great staff at reception. The room is comfortable. Pity about the smoke smell. Guests should respect hotel rules. The walk up the stairs is a bit far when you tired after a long drive. The breakfast staff were excellent. The breakfast was quite varied and allowed for a selection. Enjoyed staying there and will stay there again.

Liked the hotel. Would like it more if cleaning of the hotel rooms toilet can improve and also the staff members at breakfast could become more friendlier and helpful. Offer each and every guest hot drinks like coffee and tea and not give preference to any racial group.
