My group arrived early before the "check in" time and it took some serious negotiation at the front desk to get rooms allocated. This was at around 11:00 am. Finally a manager stepped in and the discussion went from the staffer saying "absolutely no rooms available" to the manager finding 4 rooms immediately. Why do hotels put people through this?...

The hotel is lovely and the staff are nice, however don't bother ordering room service!! I waited 55 mins for my food after ordering only for a completely wrong order to arrive! I had to then wait an additional 25 minutes for my correct order to arrive. When it did arrive it wasn't even that nice!!

The hotel is monumental, clean, friendly and overwhelming at the same time. Very friendly staff whom in an effective way take you through the jungle of people and luggages up to your room. A good gym, nice pool and a decent restaurant with very good food.

My daughter an I stayed one night for Valentines day. It is so nice because it is linked to Sandton City for shopping. The pool area was nice and quiet, but very slow service for drinks. Evening meal was a Valentines meal, very upmarket...not so good for my daughter of 6 years and she had to pay the full price....

When I first arrived at the hotel, my heart sank a little as the building is a 90's skyscraper with an atrium. There were issues of detail to start with, and a rather reluctant senior manager who came across as not getting involved outside of Mon- Fri 9- 5 when a hotel is a 24/7 business. Once there was a...
