I went there for my honeymoon and had the greatest time. The rooms are nice and spacious,the staff was really nice and the food was delicious. Coming from the US the hotel really has great prices. Most of the alcoholic drinks were under $3 and a 60 minute massage was around $45. Plus the new spa was beautiful. The only...

Short review this time--it's a beautiful property set in central location (not particularly close to much but not far from the centers of activity, either). Service was very inconsistent (especially from the front office), and all F&B experiences (7 meals over 3 days) were poor, save for the one Deli meal.

What a spectacular hotel, the rooms the view everything. That is until you need service. You cant fault the hotel on any other front, but that was the lasting impression. Breakfast was a joke. We sat down, after 20 odd minutes we asked for menus. People who sat down after us were already eating (it is only alla carte). While...

Being part of the all star lineup for the Johannesburg International Comedy festival I found the service to be top notch. Even when the room service staff got stuff wrong, the supervisors were always on hand to correct things. The Golf cart service getting you around the hotel is really great.

I just came from the most amazing hotel stay the very evening i checked in at the Four Seasons Westcliffe. Immediately I got annoyed with the check-in lady. It took a while for my incidental deposit to get through so I kindly asked if it is alright that I bring my mom to the room since its been a very...

We loved the old Westcliff but the new one is even better. Staff are even friendlier and more slick. The new lift could clash but it works well with the old buildings. Restaurant is different and more modern. It's at least as good as before if not better.

I love the Westcliffe and stay here once every 3 months with work. The rooms are beautiful and the staff are all friendly and helpful. I always look forward to breakfast here but it has changed for the worse and I don't get it. Firstly the location - it used to be a choice of inside and outside breakfast with...

Perched high on a hill with great views sits this hotel designed like a small town complete with cobblestone paths. The food was great and the service was great. The staff was most helpful and always friendly. The restaurant has a commanding view and the food was great. The spa was under construction when we were there but should be...

Having Stayed at West Cliff for many hundreds of nights when it was with Orient Express thought with Four Seasons would be better. This was the most horrible experience with poor service and poor comfort. The Air Conditioning in the room was not working optimally and just imagine spending the night in the summer of the Southern Hemisphere Next day...
