Normally our place to stay for our regular business trips to JHB. Staff friendly and professional as always. Rooms clean and neat with good quality bathrooms. I did experience a little hiccup at breakfast being served by an indifferent breakfast chef which you don't expect from a hotel of its standard.

Have stayed more than five times and always found affordable rates on Internet. Excellent location, close to everything, with excellent parking (making it easier for shoppers). Clean and well kept-up. Lovely pool area. Friendly and helpful staff with exception of front-desk who are not consistently welcoming - but they did expertly handle a room change as we were not happy...

Stayed here in 2014 and 2015. Seems that this Hotel has regressed in one year. Questionable late night visitors frequent this Hotel, say no more! Also experienced water outage with no offer of compensation for the inconvenience. A free breakfast or one night stay would have left a better lasting impression. Rooms was small and not clean to standard expected...

I stayed there for a week every month between August and November and there was always something amiss. Breakfast time was the worst. If you need tea or coffee you would more often than not leave the restaurant before you got it. The most annoying part was things running out during breakfast. If its not plates its bowl or glasses...

The hotel is well situated and in a beautiful setting adjacent to the iconic Wanderers Club. Rooms are a bit old and tired but comfortable. The staff, while friendly are not well trained at all.
