I have wanted to visit this hotel for 20 years and finally got to do so in April 2014. The building is simply magnificent. Take the time to enjoy it and have a look around. I went to the top floor of the hotel and couldn't believe the detail on the roof! We were told that Breakfast was outstanding, it wasn't and neither was the food in general, until we found The Grill Room (an onsite restaurant tucked away under the Tusk Bar), then the food went from disappointing to superb! We even had a Salt & Pepper 'Menu'. The Meerlust wine is a MUST as is a dawn hot air balloon ride! The walk to the Brewery through the maze is fun. The continual line of drivers in Mercs to take you wherever you want to go within Sun City really makes you feel special. Sun City itself is tired, very tired and is in desperate need of reinventing itself. It's tacky and smells of cigarettes. I wouldn't intentionally go back, but if I found myself in South Africa again, I wouldn't miss the opportunity to book a room, a meal in The Grill Room and a bottle of Meerlust.
