I booked my work collegues and myself at this hotel for a week long stay, all i have gotten is excellent feedback from them. After a long and exhausting day the rooms were so comfortable, counting sheep was not nessecary. The staff were helpful and friendly and went out of thier way to make our stay enjoyable. Food was excellent, on-time and freshly prepared.
We had a 007 themed dinner, what a way to end a fantastic stay! I would recommend this establishement for anyone, business, leisure, functions or conferences.
Once again thank you to the staff for your excellent service !

Don't be fooled - staff appear to be helpful & friendly but as soon as there is a problem, you see a very different side. I had a function that I had a few 'issues' about but I use the term loosely. I received a mail asking for my feedback and when I gave it, I was told that I was rude, childish and that they were very busy and did not need my business. Turned the whole story around to make it sound like all issues were my doing. Owner even told me that he has too much business to worry about me / my complaints !!! Property really nice but TERRIBLE staff. Would definitely NOT recommend this property unless you are prepared to be personally insulted y the manager and owner.

Great little find just a short ride from OR Tambo International Airport. Our double room was well appointed with a huge comfortable bed and modern shower room as good as any 5 star hotel we've ever stayed at. The staff were very friendly. Pity the food wasn't quite up to 5 star standard but we were only paying a portion of 5 star prices. Excellent value for money.

We arrived on a Sunday and the following day was a public holiday. We live in Malawi and not used to cities. We were right at home with friendly staff assisting us, even on the Sunday and public holiday. The kitchen closed at 4 pm , being it a Sunday and the next, a public holiday. Our supper was prepared and kept in the fridge for us to consume that evening. The food was excellent and even the starters were big portions. Room service was great and prompt. The staff waited on us hand and foot, log fire burning in the bar, nice Irish coffee as it was freezing outside. The front desk assisted us with places we needed to go, made our bookings, the cab driver was very friendly and prompt.Rooms were clean, warm, comfy. The artwork on the walls are original and heartwarming to admire. Fountains and bird life around was entertaining. Thanks to all staff and Christo, the manager, who made us feel so at home, far away from home. What a pretty haven, oh, and a well maintained pool with loungers for the summer clients. Very private, quiet area. I have nothing to complain about. Special requirements are attended to. Well priced for a wonderful 4 days stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a sunny room where the sun shines on the veranda if booking in the winter. Especially if you...

I was in Joburg on business and my client booked me into this little gem.

I arrived on a sunday so had to fend for myself but the girls behind the counter helped me with an Indian takeaway which arrived quickly and I helped my self to a beer from behind the bar !!

This is just the type of place I love as it feels like a home from home.

Breakfast was excellent in the british fry up tradition which was a nice surprise but I would have to watch myself over a longer stay for fear of turning into jabba the hut.

When you see the cost of the experience it is amazing how they do it, less that 40 quid a night. You would pay well north of 100 in the UK and not balk at it.

So if you are on business in Boksburg for any reason this is where you should stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that looks onto the central courtyard
