Not the place for anyone in Sandton for a working stay. This hotel pre-dates the area's development as a corporate center; the Westford is a pre-1980 relic in the motorway lodge mode. Viable hostelry for transit stop if you're car touring or else want a safe area alternative to central Johanesburg for one night and you are seeking the cheapest...

Stayed at the Westford prior to a trip into Botswana. The hotel is conveniently located a short walk from the Gautrain station ( direct line to Jo'burg airport ), the Sandton City Mall and other amenities.

A kind of place that Indians would love. Gives the homely feeling of an inn. However, it can't be classified as grand by any means. A touch on the expensive side. Westford's location at Sandton is superbly convenient, only 10 min walk from the bustling Mandela Square. The hotel rooms are large, although the layout is quite awkward and one...
