“Can not get to toilet in bathroom with ease.”
Reviewed 7 February 2014 via mobile

Can not get to toilet in bathroom with ease, worst bathroom ever, shower dirty, hair in and on bed, asked for a wine glass and was told I must pay fifty Rand corkage yet I could get a glass of wine for thirty Rand ?...
Very noisy can hear everything in corridor, must be bad soundproofing, in short would not recommend.

Stayed January 2014

Good day.
According to the GAUTENG LIQUOR ACT, 2 OF 2003
General Offences; -
It is an offence to introduce, possess or consume liquor on private premises without the consent of the owner or legal occupier.
As we have a fully licensed bar the act was broken by the guest.
With regards to the R50 corkage fee - that was never payed - relates to the consumption of a full bottle, which contains 3 - 4 glasses of wine. The R30 is only for 1 glass of wine.
All related complaints followed this incident.
Regards
Afrique Boutique Hotel

Very convenient to OR Tambo and shuttle is available. Lovely, safe property with green spaces, fountains, pleasant pool area, bar, patio, dining room. Rooms are nicely decorated and have private small patios. Slept well, ate well and felt at home as soon as we arrived. Great South African hospitality!

Dinner was not so great - a little more finess and flair to meal presentation and consistancy.
Room door was left open whilst cleaning with my belongings in the room.
Had to wait for staff to arrive before i could have breakfast on the Sat morning ( 7-30am ) .
Gate remotes for guests is a must .

A very pleasant and peaceful conference and accommodation venue in the hustle and buzzle of the city. The boutique hotel is within easy reach of OR Tambo Airport and with good service and food, there is nothing more that is needed

What an amazing dinner we had, the table was beautifully decorated. The food was fantastic and more than enough. The candle ligt display at the entrance as our guests arrived was so welcoming. The service rendered throughout the evening was splendid. We will definitely visit Afrique Boutique Hotel Oliver Tambo again. Many thanks Monique
