What an exceptional experience, from arrival to the team on property, we had a truly amazing stay. Nestled in Joburg, this special place is very secure and tranquil. The staff are genuine and relaxed. The food in the restaurant was refined and elegant as well as the Butlers to the doorman. A must visit if you are in the city.

We were upgraded to a Presidential suite. It was spaaacious!! First night ate at Qunu which was very good. The concierge was excellent, her name, Chenee Seeberath, helped us before arriving to schedule our tour and after we left arranging our luggage transport to Cape Town. The sunset at the pool area was beautiful, the music players were just amazing....

This is rated as one of the top hotels in Johannesburg and it is not surprising! Set in beautiful gardens you would not think that you are in the middle of a city and only 10-15 minutes to Sandton centre. The rooms are large and superbly equipped, and with your own butler service, create a feeling of luxury. Food is...

The hotel exudes elegance, opulence and sophistication from the warm greetings of the doormen and reception staff to the attentive focus of your personal butler. The suites are luxuriously appointed with every detail to comfort and ease. It is a pleasure to spend time in your suite rather than being just a place to sleep as it is in many...

Two years ago I was fortunate enough to come here for dinner - I promised myself then if I ever came back to Johannesburg I would treat myself to a stay here. You did not disappoint. From the moment I arrived, through my stay the decor, ambience and service of this historic retreat was a delight. The new spa was...
