Southern Sun Pietermaritzburg

Boasting a wide range of entertainment facilities, Southern Sun Pietermaritzburg (previously known as the Golden Horse hotel) is the only hotel in Africa and one of a very few in the world that is a true punters’ paradise. Situated in the heart of KwaZulu-Natal, the hotel offers an exciting world of action and gaming, set against the rolling hills of the beautiful Natal Midlands, less than an hour from Durban.

Whether you are travelling for business or leisure, you are sure to find plenty to see and do in this part of the province. Alexandra Park, Basani Art and Craft Centre, Church Street, Burger Street Jail, Doreen Clark Nature Reserve, Midlands Meander, Natal Museum, Natal Zoological Gardens and many other local attractions are all within easy reach. Guests can also enjoy access to the Golden Horse Casino, which lies within the grounds of the hotel.
