We attended on a rather busy Saturday and were quite dissappointed that they could not cater to the crowd and that drinks were not easy to come by on a scorcher of a day

Spacious boardrooms. Nice environment and if you love horse racing, visit on a race day. Catering from Isizwe Hospitality is on point.

Fairly useless as a conference venue (Nov 2016). Advertises wifi, but won't give you the wifi password because "we don't like people using the wifi". Fantastic. A business venue without business facilities. Don't come here for a business function if you need internet connectivity.

I can imagine on a normal day at Turffontein Race Course would be respectable with individuals in hats looking through binoculars for their treasured horse but unfortunately when I attended, it was not only a race day but also the JHB prawn festival. That meant...More
