It serves its purpose as an accommodation provider. Nothing extraordinary or life changing about the place. It's age shows but price has kept with the current times. Perfect to sleep and move on your way.

Excellent hotel in the greater Johannesburg metro! Convenient for business and pleasure alike. I stayed with my family and other friends. The staff was friendly and attentive and went out of their way to help us. After staying for 2 nights on a holiday in November, I returned to spend the last night in South Africa before returning home... And...

Room wasn't available until 3pm, receptionist was unapologetic however - we were able to use a disabled room to get showered & changed after complaining. Room was fine, very spacious but lacking any kind of character & quite sterile. Pool was amazing, lovely & big & the bar did a great Bloody Mary. An ok stay all in all, certainly...

Well located for business or pleasure. Staff friendly, rooms above average, bar area welcoming. Near to Sandton City for most amenities. Also well located for various attractions, Lion Park, Lion and Rhino park , crocodile farm and not too far for a day at a game park.

A premier hotel in the heart of the South African financial district. Fabulous staff who will do anything they can to please. Beautiful facility with very clean updated rooms. Look up Albert in the bar...always a big smile and a hearty welcome back. Food is top notch, even room service.

The restaurant staff appeared not very well trained with one waitor in particular being totally disrespectful by insisting that we pay for any extras outside our allocated level of spend on the dinner notwithstanding the fact that this was a corporate booking. The least he could have said was to refer our issues to his boss for appropriate action.

Great hotel, really nice decor. The staff were super friendly and they even gave us a free room upgrade.

It also had one of the best equipped gyms...
