We stayed two different times during this one trip. Both times the staff were amazing. The accommodations were fabulous. It was so nice going back for the second time; the staff greeted us and remembered us. It was so nice to have that familiarity with them. This is definitely the better choice then staying in a larger, commercial hotel.

We arrived very late (after Air France postponed our flight for 13 hours), but the staff were ready for us and most welcoming. Our room was gorgeous, with every detail provided for. Breakfast and lunch on the terrace, overlooking the beautiful gardens, were perfect, and my friend and I enjoyed treatments in the spa. Would definitely recommend this hotel for... More

We stayed here twice during our trip, both at the start and then midway through our trip (3 nights total). Our experience was that of a very tasteful boutique hotel, neatly tucked away amongst the barbed wire and electric fences of Jo'burg.

What a majestic and roomy place. Enjoyed the large spaces available especially the bathrooms. A real breath of fresh air in Joburg. However a few things need tweaking too.

We had our team strategic planning session at the venue. Beautiful backgrounds. Everything you need from a conference infrastructure perspective. Extremely friendly staff. Fantastic food throughout the day. Also super convenient with respect to accessibility. Definitely worth another visit - this time to go to the spa 😃
