If you like a room on a busy and noisy street, then this is for you!. I arrived at about 4pm in the middle of a torrential downpour, to discover there is no secure parking. I then stood in the rain at the main entrance until another guest saw me and opened for me. There were no hotel staff at...

Really lovely boutique hotel, very conveniently set just outside of Sandton. The room was lovely and well furnished with a great fan (no air conditioning). The service was excellent and food very tasty and they even offered for us to use the board room facilities for meetings, which was very kind. The wifi and cell reception were not great at...

We were late in arriving, well past 930, yet staff still were happy to make us club sandwiches! My shirt was ironed for a special dinner out one evening & bkfast was always scrummy & beautifully presented. I chose the Hamilton for its modern design, but came away with the memory of smiles & discreet yet attentive service too.

What differentiates us from other conferencing venues is the exclusivity and intimacy of our setting, quality snacks and meals throughout the day and a...

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

Dear Nicholas Thank-you for your valued feedback. We have double-checked our Google Maps and we definitely are pinned to the correct place on the corner of Grosvenor Avenue and Buccleuch Avenue in Craighall Park. I see that although we are in the suburb of Craighall Park, Google Maps allocates us to the broader district of Randburg, even though we are...

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!
