“Business but pleasurable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

The location is ideal, with close proximity to the Pivot Conference Centre. This was ideal for my international meeting, and the delegates loved being able to walk around Montecasino. Wonderful options for meals, or a simple coffee on the terrace

We stayed over for "The Sound of Music" package deal, it was excellent in all respects. Easily accessible, lovely surroundings. The staff at reception were very helpful and assisted us with detailed explanations on what was included in the package. The rooms are very comfortable, dinner great, the breakfast
was super, a sumptuous selection catering for all, from the healthy eater to those that enjoy a big hearty breakfast. Right on the doorstep of theatre and casino, I would recommend this hotel as a must experience.
It is most certainly

This is a good looking hotel that's close to good shopping and entertainment. Staff are friendly and attentive. Breakfasts are good and the restaurant is well above average for hotel food. The bar is a good place to relax and have a beer before bed.

Room Tip: Not much of a view and very quiet so no real advantage to any of the rooms.

I spent only two night there, and almost one full day preparing a presentation. My room was OK. Very clean and comfortable. Couldn't find the in-room dining leaflet but this wasn't an issue, I went downstairs. Had a nice dring on the terrace by the swimming pool. Shame it was chilly in this month of May, I believe this must be a delight at summertime.
Why 'a bit strange'? Simply because the Montecasino hall with restaurants, shops, a casino, etc. is a very strange place. And unfortunately, this is all I sahll have seen from Joburg since I had no time to go downtown.
Last but not least: two excellent assets this hotel has. First of all, the most friendliest staff you can dream of, from the reception to the concierge, from the house-keeping lady to the restaurant waiter. Congratulations, this shows that this hotel is extremely well managed and the staff extremely well trained and truly dedicated to service quality.
Second asset: a very good restaurant. The food was really excellent. Grilled sardines and an excellent beef filet.
With a better wifi connexion, it would have been a really good experience. But believe me, wifi was really very poor at late hours;;;

We decided to spend a night away from home at the Southern Sun Montecasino hotel as it was my wife's birthday on Sunday. We live just down the road, but it was certainly worth the effort as we were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived at the hotel!
What a stunning setting within the Montecasino complex, far away from the noise, yet close enough to walk to your favorite restaurant. Tip # 1, eat at the hotel restaurant for dinner (Punchinnelo's), great!
We enjoyed breakfast the following morning with our family celebrating the birthday. Again, special service was bestowed upon us, including a birthday cake.
Overall, great venue for a weekend away or wanting to see a show at the Teatro. Not cheap, for sure but worth while.
