The hotel has a luxurious intimate ambiance with good quality bedding. The room was nice and dark and I especially love the BVLGARI amenities. I did like the fact that it was not a buffet breakfast; great food, but it took some time so I suggest arriving early if you have a meeting scheduled.

Nice however could improve, the spa is located in a small area which makes one not to get the very best that could be offered. The restaurant is nice and cosy best for intimate / small group. The ambiance at the hotel is perfect! Perfect boutique hotel.

Beautiful room and high quality bed - great sleep which is so important when away from home and up early with a busy day. Not sure I like the toilet open behind glass - glad I was there alone. Food was average - expected spectacular food given the price. Service in the lounge was a challenge to attract someone to...

I recently hosted a corporate event at The Marion. The venue is really gorgeous, a boutique hotel that has an amazing cafe bistro set up for small intimitate functions. Decor was stunning and the food was excellent , hats off to the chef. Now for the bad part, which despite all of the above , any great establishment is defined...

I stayed here before - 1 year ago. More than happy to return for a follow up visit. Very spacious and clean rooms with inclusive wi-fi (a MUST). Very friendly staff. If you don't know Jhb and plan to drive to the hotel by car from the airport - make sure to get a GPS included in the car rental...

My husband and I like to plan a monthly weekend getaway - just some quite quality us time. We have stayed at many Jhb hotels over the last few months. However the pics on the website are not a true reflection - the bathroom was tiny and there is an option to indulge in a luxury bath with added bath...

The hotel is very well appointed, modern, tidy. There are plenty of staff around. The food was great in particular the lamb rack. It is slow though...very very slow. This wasn't a one off. We stayed for a few days. The showers are the high mounted rain drop type. Great if you want to get your hair wet every day,...

This hotel had a nice ambiance and decor with great breakfast in the morning, but lost points for me with their hotel staff. Front desk is unprofessional and un-polite. Very stoic actually. Our room keys were not working when we arrived and the woman on staff didn't really try hard to get us into the room. In addition, we were...

Beautiful boutique hotel. Stylish and professional. Friendly staff provided great service. Great spot for a quiet business lunch. Smallish menu to choose from, but enough variety for all tastes. Oxtail and Salmon comes highly recommended. Will be back

The beautifully furnished boutique hotel is stylish and has relaxed ambience. We went there for year end lunch with colleagues. The kingklip I ordered was not properly cooked, was sushi'ed. Found the supposed 2 smallish saffron prawns a let down. The dessert made up somewhat for the dull main. Rather order the oxtail or duck, generous meaty portion. Very tasty...
