The hotel is in a quiet area of the city someway from the centre so we were unable to look around other than stroll around the immediate area. The bedroom was very nice with all the necessary comforts, it was clean and had good beds with a nice bathroom. The bar was fairly well stocked and we were able to... More

We stayed at this hotel a couple of days during our trip to South Africa. The hotel rooms are quite spacious and clean. The hotel offers a shuttle to the Rosebank Mall, which is nice because the hotel is not close to anything - at least you would not walk to anything I the area. This is a great hotel... More

My tour group stayed here for one night before travelling to Kruger. The hotel is in a good location and nice and modern. Rooms were comfortable and I slept really well. Buffet dinner and breakfast were included in our stay. Dinner buffet was limited but OK, breakfast was very good.

At first at reception they were not very helpful and did not meet my needs as they provided two single beds instead of my large king bed and the floor level. They were not too happy about my request. They did however change it and the room was great. Great view and it met expectations. Will definitely stay there again.

The position of the hotel is excellent - within ten minutes drive of Rosebank and Sandton City. The hotel has good parking. Our welcome by reception was not good, and the request for a firmer pillow from housekeeping was greeted by - sorry love we don't have any. This was a Sunday so may be housekeeping was not fully staffed.... More

Check-in took very long but check-out was quick. The hotel ambiance was perfect. The room was very spacious. The quality of sleep was not good. The same type of pillows were used unlike in other hotels where soft and hard pillows are used. There was a complimentary mouth-watering red apple. The room cleanliness was acceptable. The supply of room amenities... More

On arrival, no porter to assist with luggage. Reception book in was a nightmare. I requested a quiet room, high up and away from the lifts. I was booked into a low room, right next the lifts. The women assisting me at check in was incredibly rude and long faced. The room was not ready on time either. The breakfast... More

I must admit that i had my reservations about this hotel but i was really suprised. The hotel seems to have had a makeover and whilst its not super modern its also a lot more up to date than i expected. The one great highlight is the restaurant. The food was perfectly cooked and the portions are really large. The... More
