I have stayed before and enjoy the physical layout, the grounds, pool, restaurant and view over Joberg, along with good breezes. The rooms are nicely arranged and comfortable and the balconies adequate to sit on for a glass of wine after the sun setsThis stay was extremely disappointing. Arrived, no air conditioning, so the room was stifling, no gym that...

Staying at Westcliff was the best stay at the hotel I have ever experienced. Definitely worth staying - it literally ruined all other hotels for me afterwards. Definitely want to come back and enjoy the stay this time with my family.

With service this good, one can only assume that the only way to go will be down. Fortunately, The Westcliff remains 'on guard'. The experience of staying at the hotel remains consistent. It really is a warm and inviting experience - no pressure. The uncanny ability of every member of staff to remember your name and face is just so...

When I made the booking with the four Seasons one of the reasons was there high rating but from the moment we arrived we were disappointed. When making the booking we discussed the room to be ready by 1pm as we driving up from Durban with a toddler. Which as agreed to by the lady I spoke to that made...

The entrance road to the Four Seasons Hotel The West Cliff is not well marked; our guide had a challenge finding it, even using GPS. Once you do arrive, you pass through a gate that is much like entering a protected compound. I was really surprised to see the nearby neighborhood of beautiful homes protected with guardhouses and wrapped in...

Website is misleading to the actual property . One of the worst four seasons hotel . Insects crawling in the bath tub , screeching sound of the shower , tv channels not working most of the time . Worst experience ever .

From Check-in to Checkout , every detail during my stay was taken care with immense detail and care. The views are fantastic and staff is very friendly. I would have just hoped for better breakfast options. However with everything else was very good. I strongly suggest business as well as couples to stay here

Our stay at the Four Seasons was a wonderful re-entry to civilization from Safari. We were able to take advantage of the many different pool areas including a small beautiful lap pool outside of the spa. As for food, again, many fine choices including a bagel breakfast at the "deli" salads by the bar, and dinner at the View. At...
