My wife and I had a week holiday in Sandton and we were very happy about our choice of this hotel. From airport pick up to reception at the hotel we had a warm welcome from friendly and professional staff. The hotel, with its admirable architecture and location within the Sandton City Mall complex is excellent as it affords an opportunity to shop in the famous Mall and also have meals at a wide range of restaurants within the Mall. Sightseeing within Sandton is another bonus. Our room on the 20th floor was quiet and welcoming - spacious, clean, good layout and with a good view of the Sandton skyline. The bed was comfortable and the beddings clean, though the pillows were rather too soft and sometimes made sleeping a bit uncomfortable, nevertheless, I enjoyed my sleep. I liked the tea/coffee corner - it had all I could have asked for, and I enjoyed my morning coffee. The bathroom was clean with fresh towels and other supplies in adequate quantities - couldn’t ask for more. The restaurant on the 6th floor was great, and breakfast was fantastic, The staff there were exceptionally engaging and serviceable. Being a health food conscious person, I found the quality of food to be generally very high with a wide range of choices to make, especially at breakfast. By the way, the famous Sun spa is worth an experience; we had a great spa treatment here. We definitely had value for money at this hotel and will surely come back here at our next visit.

We booked a romantic package, we got a room upgrade. The room was amazing and we got much more than expected, champagne, a lovely dessert, bed full of roses, chocolates and water, dinner at the restaurant, in-room breakfast and a lovely massage at the spa! The service from all the hotel employees was astonishing. The stay was everything one can ask for. Thank you, guys!

This hotel is in a great location. Right in a shopping centre which was very safe to walk round. Loads of eating places within a 5 minute walk. Hotel itself is beautiful with lovely rooms. The pool area is very peaceful with a lovely bar that comes alive at night. We will return.
