Having stayed at many hotels in the vicinity, The Sandton Sun breakfast is one of thee best breakfasts of all hotels in the area, Having a large selection of everything you could possibly think of as well as the friendliest and most helpful staff. Having stayed at the Sandton Sun on many occasions the staff proved themselves to be competent and effecient as well as incredibly friendly which is important factor in the service industry.
The breakfast had a large selection of pastries, yoghurts, fruits, juices as well as numerous other selections – It is what I would describe as food heaven.

One of the facilities which I have yet to try at the sandton sun is their in house spa. I would definitely rate this stay 9/10 , The only absurd thing about the hotel would be that guests staying in the hotel are required to pay to park at the hotel, However that is a very small complaint for an otherwise wonderful hotel.
