Attended an all day business meeting - excellent facilities, delicious range of refreshments and variety of beverages, lunch served in private room. Staff attentive to detail and responsive to requests. Hotel conveniently located in the Melrose Arch precinct, with parking underground. Also serviced by the Gautrain bus from Rosebank Station. Be wary of driving out into the rush hour traffic...

I had a lunch meeting at this hotel which is very conveniently located. The service was very bad. The waiters are not trained at all. I ordered a tuna starter and the waiter came back after a long wait and asked me - "Did you say chicken". Come-on, said my colleague, "even I heard and remember it was seared tuna"....

The best part of this property is the location. Shops, Food choices, and safety. It's in one of the most secure areas in JNB. You can walk around like you would in Singapore at night. 100% safe...plus there's endless choices for restaurants and shopping. The hotel is very upmarket and even though the rooms aren't huge, they feel spacious. I...
