The Southern Sun is located fairly central in Nelspruit - about 20 Minutes from the airport and just opposite a Mall & Casino complex. Free, guarded parking is available as well as free WiFi.
Nelspruit Botanical Gardens are 5 Minutes by car - Walking is safe (at least during daylight).
Rooms are a bit tired but OK - clean and well-maintained. Nice garden and pool - great breakfast with generally slow Service (but this is SouthAfrica after all)
We stayed for 2 nights and explored the Blyde River Canyon Area and would return to the Hotel anytime.
