Tucked away in Rosebank, the Southern Sun Rosebank exudes a warm and welcoming feel to its guests and patrons. The hotel itself is very popular among tour groups and is a favorite venue for various conferences, conventions, trainings, meetings and corporate activities. The concierge is manned by polite, friendly and accommodating staff who ensure your stay is wonderful and memorable. I had come here for a conference/training and the hotel accommodated my request to keep luggage for me for my stay. And despite having changed my arrival dates twice, they were very flexible and ensured that I be picked up from the airport in the middle of the night - in safety and comfort. The expansive and eye catching atrium is designed in such a way that guests can lounge in style and families can relax in comfort. Workstations designed as open plan worktop counters have an endless supply of ports one can plug a laptop into and get to work - either as a small focused group or by oneself. There is also a boardroom and business center that working groups can utilize. The meeting rooms are well maintained, spacious, and supported by excellent staff who ensure impeccable audio-visual, IT and tech support. The bar and restaurant are nicely designed to maximize space - without anyone feeling claustrophobic, and yet exude an eye appealing aesthetic. There are outdoor areas nicely setup for smokers and those who want to dine al fresco. Indoors are also pleasing and there is enough seating for small medium and large groups or the solitary diner. The food is amazingly prepared and the buffet is nicely laid out. There is enough in the menu to satisfy varied palates - vegetarians, pasta perfectionists, meat lovers, seafood aficionados and fusion fanatics. The bar is not for the rowdy and uncouth, and the chef is very hands on and attentive to all detail - from flavors to fixtures. The rooms are very comfortable and definitely not cramped, with well-appointed furniture, the most divine bed, the fluffiest pillows, a well organized bathroom, sufficient closet space, and a roomy workstation. the shower itself has lots of pressure and no dearth of hot water. The housekeeping staff are very helpful and efficient, the laundry service is top notch and the chauffer service is excellent. The gym is well equipped with well maintained facilities. The pool is amazing for relaxation and fun. And the spa is just heavenly. And there is safe and sufficient parking. Most of all, the location is very safe (you are right in front of the police), a block or two away from the Rosebank mall, a service station, a hospital (top notch one), cafes, bistros and restaurants.

Room was clean and neat. Unfortunately, the hotel charged me an entire night stay for checking out 3 hours late. This is after I checked in at approximately 7pm the night before (5 hours after allowed check-in). Such fantastic hospitality shown.
