Booked for proximity to business meetings- Will not repeat and would not recommend. Negative experience began before check in when I requested hotel car pick up from Gautrain station. Reception staff (difficult to understand on phone and repeatedly interrupted me mid-requests for help) confirmed pick-up for 11:15; colleagues & I waited at station until 11:30 when Reception phoned back stating...

The service was awesome, i wish i could stay longer. I was very well welcomed on arrival and every request was taken care of fast. I also loved the bus service that helped get people to their various destinations every morning and back in the evening

This hotel is good for conferences as it is far out and not close to any distractions like shopping malls or shops. I've stayed at this hotel several times. The rooms are great, clean and well equipped. Meals are good too. They can at least put a little bottle of complimentary water in the empty bar fridge, which will cost...

Room settings okay , the neatness of the room very okay. However breakfast service is lousy. Security needs to be beefed up. The rooms are safe but car park area due to the incident that happened on the 2nd need to be secured. The bars need to be changed to more study spikes and tubular springing from the floor.

The hotel is looking great after the revamp. Staff are friendly and bed comfortable. Hot breakfast was very average. People are fickle when requesting eggs and how they done. Bit more attention and help for poor cook will be great.

First impression seems like a resort type hotel. Room is actually nice, clean and spacious. The actual hotel seems more like an apartment type accommodation and how the rooms are layered, also the hallways needs improvement. Nice pool and garden, and food selection seems nice and reasonably priced. Not fun of the everyday sausage but good breakfast selection. Service is...
