Extremely large rooms, super friendly service, nice restaurant, nice terrace. A few rooms to have a more private conversation. It is definitely worth doing the extra miles to be out of the mega hotels with no soul around the airport.

Sadly the Spa experience at Fairlawns fell well short of expectations and previous experiences at the hotel. I felt like i was in a sausage factory or assembly line with very little care shown in my facial treatment. The therapist was clumsy and worked to the clock. The rooms are extremely dark and dingy. I would not recommend the Spa...

Stayed in Courtyard Suites. Beautifully decorated. Each room differently decorated and very spacious. Not cramped. Food excellent and dining area beautiful Spa was average and I found it to be overpriced. Will definitely go back for special occasions only as we found it to be very pricey

Beautiful and lovely hotel. Attention to detail, the food is great, rooms specious and lovely different designs It's just a bit pricy for returning South Africans clients just looking for a relaxed weekend out in a quiet place. I'd love to stay over each time I'm in Joburg but prices are a bit hectic
