Stayed here for one night and was pleasantly upgraded to a front facing room. Rooms are large with great modern decor and huge bathrooms. Service at Four Seasons is what you expect and The Westcliff doesn't disappoint. Short stay so only experienced the Views bar for a drink on this trip. Would i stay here again? Certainly!!!!

Lives up to the four seasons name, beautifully styled and designed hotel set on top of the Westcliff ridge. Service was great throughout with timely room service and buggy calls. Highly recommend for a holiday or stopover in Johannesburg. Perfect for business, couples and families.

We stayed overnight at the Four Seasons for a celebratory evening. From the minute we arrived until we left we were blown away by the amazing service. Staff were incredibly friendly, and everyone congratulated us on our celebration. Celebratory complimentary extras such as the champagne and treats were greatly appreciated. Dinner at the Flames restaurant (try the Wagyu rib eye)...

We spent a couple of nights at 'The Highcliffe' to recover from flight having stayed previously before the 'Four Seasons' make over. Our room was good with excellent facilities, and a nice view over the valley. Importantly for us it was available for immediate occupation when we arrived mid morning after our overnight flight and we received a very friendly...

The stay at this property exceeded my expectations. The rooms are lovely and well appointed. The rooms also have a small balcony with amazing views. We also traveled with two young boys that got a lot of attention from the staff. The food, both at the restaurants and room service, was excellent.

The staff were amazing, they went above and beyond in all sections of our stay. 1 complaint I have is that the room includes breakfast and they charged me for the kosher option, if they would have went over the costs it would have been one thing however it was not discussed. Everything else was marvelous. Thank you

This is the best in JHB in may view, but you will pay for it! Excellent spa, good gym, great steak restaurant and relaxing outside space. I am not sure if all rooms have a balcony, but ask for one with the largest outside access to really make the most of the experience.

Short but very interesting experience at the Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff. Nice place, good service, friendly staff and very warm welcome. The room was magnificent - lovely décor, and a fantastic bathroom.

We visited the Four Seasons for a couple of days following a stint in Cape Town. The idea was to end the holiday with a bit of luxury. We wish we had stayed in Cape Town. The hotel was average at best. The layout of the hotel isn't great and the facilities limited. Food choice onsite was also limited with...
