Home away from home ”
Super clean rooms and hotel. The staff was just so welcoming, kind, and accommodating. Hot water for a shower, and warm rooms in the winter. Enjoy the beautiful parlor with two fireplaces. I had a wonderful stay, and I would recommend this to anyone who is staying in Johannesburg.

A Comedy of Errors”
I have very fond memories of the Sunnyside Park Hotel, the anticipation of that following a business booking I had added an additional night to my stay. Sadly it was nothing like I remembered. This firmly centered on unacceptable customer service. The staff are pleasant enough when engaged, but demonstrate an attitude that appears to put themselves rather than the client first. This perhaps speaks to either; an unhappiness with, and/or a lack of development by, the management. Sadly it was a comedy of errors. Here are but three examples; Check-in: There was no knowledge additional night booking despite direct email correspondence. I was told to pay my account upfront add an additional amount to cover what I thought I would spend. Room: The phone did not work and I could not request room service. At reception was directed to restaurant where they had no knowledge of menu. Weekend early morning: Staff setting-up for afternoon function continuously blasted music outside bedrooms.

A bit down at heel but refurb underway!”
Lovely friendly staff, great location for Wits where I was working. However, renovations meant communal areas were a bit scruffy & there was some noise. My room felt a bit dated. Breakfast buffet is pretty good, but as a veggie the lunch/dinner options were limited & tbh not great. Pool needs a really good deep clean, rather than just skimming off the leaves & gym smells of damp. Overall, needs a face lift.

I found the hotel to have poor service. I was there inorder to be close to my exams venue. After writing the paper all I had to think about is to get into bed and rest so that I can prepare for the next day paper. To my surprise I found my room not cleaned at 14h30. After the effort of getting it cleaned - Phoned the reception twice because 30min has lapsed after my first call . Eventually the lady came to clean, I tried to find out from her why my room was not cleaned at this time I was told she has 12 rooms to clean so she was busy with the other rooms. I thought that was being rude , infact she should have apologize for the inconvenience I have suffered. The following morning I borrowed an Iron and ironing board, I waited for 30 min and I was getting late for my exams. I foned the second time and I still waited for 10-15 minutes in vain until I decided to leave with unironed clothes. May be it was my bad luck the hotel is not as bad.

Mixed feelings”
This place has a number of thigs going for it but also a few drawbacks. It appealed to me because of its history and that it is a low rise complex in a garden setting, with an entrance via a guarded boom gate. Also it has pleasant public areas with a spacious lounge, bar and dining area furnished in a traditional style. There is even a room described as a cigar lounge, which is still a smoking area. I was shown to my room at the end of a corridor which was in the process of being painted, and was told renovations were under way. The doors had temporary numbers printed on laminated paper and the carpet looked like it had plaster trodden into it. As the key card to the room didn’t work, I was taken to another room a couple of doors away, and it was a good size and well equipped but it looked a bit dated, as was the bathroom. I also noticed that the water took a long time to become hot. Options for my first dinner, on a week night, consisted of a buffet for starters and desserts, with a choice of five or six grilled items and a pasta dish. I chose a well done rump steak with chips and salad and the waiter even came back to confirm the chips and salad. However, the steak arrived with mashed potato and vegetables, and these were replaced when requested. The salad was not what I expected as it was mostly capsicum, tomato and onion drenched in mayonnaise. When I cut into the steak it was anything but well done, and still very pink, but I couldn’t be bothered saying anything until the end and just ate around the edges. The waiter didn’t seem at all concerned that my order was completely fouled up. The two breakfasts I had were adequate and for the second dinner, the Thursday before Easter, there was a full a la carte menu when the dining room was practically deserted. On each occasion I found the upholstery on the dining chairs to be very grubby, and perhaps they are going to be cleaned or replaced during the renovations.

It worths visiting”
The hotel environment, the price and the included breakfast.
I had a very calm and comfortable stay. The staff at the reception were great, except the waiters at the restaurant and breakfast buffet. The landscape of the hotel is amazing, but the swimming pool was a little dirty. The hotel has a classical style, but it needs rehabilitation, the furniture is old, the carpets and curtains are old. The wi-fi signal is weak in some rooms, but it works. The pricing is average. The only problem of the location is that if you don't have your own car it gets tricky to move around, the area is dangerous to walk on foot until you get the closest shops or restaurants.

Overall comfortable”
Surrounding garden, spacious common lounge and buffet dinner in a reasonable price
On our arrival, we were given the rooms at the basement with a small dingy window near the ceiling, stinky carpet and leaking WC. The rooms were very dark with no sun light. Felt like a dungeon. Obviously, we a family of 4 were disappointed and raised our concern to the reception, who apologised and moved us to a better modern room on the next day. We had to stay the first night in the basement where it was cold and the AC was ineffective. The rest of the stay was comfortable. Because of the initial experience, our enthusiasm as traveller was dampened. Regarding the value to money, we stayed in Double Tree Hilton, Cape Town for seven nights with fantastic facilities departing on the same day and flying to J'berg. We paid the same amount of money to the Sunnyside for 5 nights what we paid for 7 nights in Double Tree. The facilities were so superior in the Double Tree that it is not worth comparing the both. Therefore, the value to money is not according to the standard provided.

Relaxing and comfortable. The staff were accommodating. I had an early check in but the room wasn't prepared yet and I had to freshen up before meeting an appointment early that morning. But the staff were kind enough to offer the use of another room in the meantime and transferred things to the designated room without any hassle.

2nd Visit was dissapointing”
still the best staff service we have received in any hotel in southern africa
this time around we were booked into their "new wing". although i told the receptionist that i required a room on the ground floor near the reception as we were carrying 100kg+ of luggage - she put us on the first floor. strangely enough - the room rate from agoda was a better rate than the hotel could offer me - even as a legacy guest (their loyalty programme). there was no porter to help. my pre-registration card had me booked again as an ukranian living in united kingdom with another email and phone number(???)- i would thought that they would have fixed this the first visit. there was no mini fridge in this room. parts of the curtains were off the rail hooks the desk chair was totally wonky. however - the room was clean and tidy the free wi-fi is always a bonus room service was again superb and the breakfast is still one of the best buffets around i was permitted a 2 o'clock check out. will i go back - maybe - but i will ask for an old wing or pool room nrxt time.

room upgrade - fee wi-fi and the friendliest staff ever!!
we had the pleasure of staying here for 2 nights on our arrival from bangkok. the only reason we booked here was that it was the closest hotel to the johannesburg general hospital where we had my mom-in-law in anic ward. so it was hit and miss. but what a bonus - the hotel was great - the breakfasts were greater and the staff and service were the greatest. the free wi-fi made life easier and room service menu was delightful. yes- we have booked again - for another night there before we leave for home.

Great hotel, but check out was bad”
Nice hotel, good location.
Hotel is great. Check-out on the other hand was not so great. We paid for the stay on-line and at check-out the lady asked us to pay an additional R450. Of course if refused since the document I received from Adoga confirmed that I paid in full. The real question is will there be any additional charges billed to my credit card??? I am sure only time will tell.

Its Old World Charm, the gardens, layout of the swimming pool, original paintings and furniture
old lift not working, soiled carpets, stained bathrooms
the location of the hotel is good: secluded in a park not far from downtown bustle. the 1895 vintage adds to the old-world charm. legacy hotel group should give more importance to this hotel. the old lift needs replacement. the bathrooms need to be modernised. the carpets need replacement. but on the whole it is a pleasant stay and agoda gives a fair deal.
