There was free wifi in the room The place was not easy to locate on GPS (was only able to locate it after searching for Craighall Primary school) Nobody picked the hotel telephone line when I called to ask for specific directions. The breakfast was could have done with more variety

Maintenance needs to be done, no plugs next to the bed, lots of street sounds, staff not that helpful. Hole in the bedding. The reviews were great but the reality did not match. The garage where you park your car stinks of garbage.

The place itself looks rather grand from the outside, though parking is just off street (not secure), there is a rather imposing security gate on the front door (noisy too). The room (although changed to the garden facing room on arrival due to road noise on the street side), was clean and fine, although the toilet and shower on opposite...

An excellent Boutique Hotel in the quiet suburbs of Joburg. An excellent blend of informality (honesty bar) and high quality rooms. You could tell that no expense had been spared on the linen and towels. Great for the business traveller (shirt was pressed within 15 minutes) and plenty of power options for lap tops etc. Very friendly establishement

The garden is cosy and absolutely beautiful and the rooms are so spacious. Even though we had a room facing the road it was very quiet. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is simple but very delicious!

A beautiful spot especially for the business traveller. Leafy garden with a plunge pool, I found the team to be very friendly and accommodating. Its a self service place so if you are wanting to be waited on this isn't the place for you. Breakfasts are below average with little choice but the rooms are huge, beautifully made up and...
