Good base accommodation

Cape Town Central, South Africa

My wife and I stayed in a twin lake facing room on the ground floor. It's definitely worth paying slightly more to stay in one of these rooms. There are recliners outside to sit on and enjoy the beautiful outlook over the lawns and lake view. Rooms are small but neat, refurbished and well equipped. They provide a good base to explore all the activities at Sun City. The bus is available 24 hours a day and takes you to Sun Central. Cabanas are well located to enjoy a stroll back after dinner. Breakfast offers a good variety of food. Cleaning staff were friendly. Reception checking in and concierge desk did their job efficiently but did not seem happy to be there and were not friendly - a smile costs nothing and can greatly enhance one's overall impression of the hotel. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back.

Birthday surprise

Australia

I had booked as a birthday surprise for my husband and I was originally doubting my choice. But was pleasantly surprised after reading quite a few negative reviews. Reception desk could be a little more pleasant and smiley, but they can have some quite rude guest's to have to deal with. But please SMILE more. Concierge desk we had Dora. Could not have asked for a more pleasant and smiley and helpful person. Breakfast waiter was Thembo. WOW what can we say about him except THANKYOU you made our mornings at breakfast. The biggest smile and help you could ask for. Maybe we were just lucky or maybe it is sometimes how you approach people. I had witnessed some quite rude guest's. Our room overall was quite good. Lovely and clean. Clean towels sometimes didn't get to your room until the afternoon. As they stripped rooms early and had to wait on clean linen. We would definitely go again
