The Hotel is in a Good possition, it is easy to gate to all necessery places in town.
It was very noisy in the first night the second night was ok next time will ask for the 5th floor!
It was convenient in terms of location as we had a wedding near by.
I requested a room with view of the green before we arrived and was not granted this, the hotel was not full so I didn't understand the reason... we were given room with street view instead . Considering we booked 5 nights here I expected a bit more service .
The service was great, restaurant is excellent and it was a perfect venue for a relaxing weekend.
Hotel staff were very helpful when we needed to go to tehe shop. A porter named Thomas - kindly helped us by escorting us
I requested an airport pick up but that did not happen. I also requested two wake up calls - they did not happen. I found any requests to be ignored and these can be very important
great selection for breakfast, Omelet was best of! Nice and protected area, posible to have a run in the afternoon, gym downstairs available
We had a wonderful dinner - compliment to the chef! The room facilities were great. The hotels appearance is lovely both inside and out. The staff were so friendly and helpful.
The breakfast is very expensive. The R145pp was more expensive than our fantastic dinner, which was around R130pp and that included drinks and desert! Our room had scaffholding outside the window which spoilt the view.
Good situation and views from front room.
Initially allocated twin and not double room, were able to move after one night. The discount gym vouchers were non existent.
the staff was pleasent and the food was good oo plus free parking
there was painting taking place during our stay and the sight of scaffolding right outside our room was not good at all and by early morning they were busy going on about their work making noise had to complain but nothing much was done about it.
Quality and comfort of the room particularly comfort of matress, seperate shower and temperature control.
The hotel is attractive, modern and very well located.
Although attractive, the hotel is starting to age as it is not well maintained. My sheets had areas where they were torn - rather disgusting for a 4star facility. The bed throw had a cigarette burn mark. As for the bathroom, the bath had black stain in it, the shower did not drain well and puddled around my feet. The wallpaper had patch work - little blocks pasted over areas that had obviously been damaged.
Nice rooms, good a/c perfect location
Guests opposite left food trays outside on ground. We left at 19h00 for dinner came back 23h30. foodtrays with half eaten dinners was stil in front of our room.
The close proximity to many places esp. wanderes cricket grounds and the tranquil surroundings and lovely gardens.
Breakfast was not included in my rates and also no halaal meals catered for.
Staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful Facilities are clean and suitable for extended business stay. Restaurant food is quite good. Hotel well situated for easy access to M1, Sandton, Melrose Arch etc.
