Nice hotel. Room was nicely upkeep with a small fridge, flat screen television and temperature control for a/c or heat. Room has separate tub and shower. There is a pool, gym, free internet and free apples in the lobby desk and also an apple each day is placed in your room. Hotel restaurant is a good place to eat and the prices was very reasonable. This hotel is located about a 40 minute ride from JNB airport.

Room Tip: Our room window faces a big tall tree. We where on the first floor. Suggest a room higher up for a much better view.

I have stayed at this hotel three times, and enjoyed being there all three times. Each time I've had to spend considerable time in my room, working. That was easy because the Internet access was good and the rooms are quite spacious. Room service is good - not a large variety of choices for dinner, but relatively well prepared. The staff is very helpful. The location is good - you can walk to a mall (Rosebank) easily and take a cab back is desired. The breakfast is a bit pricey, but has wonderful variety, and good if you want to skip lunch - just have a good breakfast and you're not hungry again till dinner-time.

Room Tip: Rooms above the first floor have better views.

Needed to be in Illovo for the weekend so this hotel suited us. It seems to be used by businessmen in the week as it was slightly cheaper on the weekend which was great. Useful to know that they have a complimentary shuttle service to collect from Sandton (and I think Rosebank ) Gautrain station from Monday to Friday. We had to pay for the service on the Sunday morning when needing to be dropped back at Sandton Gautrain station. The fresh apple in each room is a lovely touch, and they were fresh - and tasty! Extra apples at reception. The hotel is on the same grounds as the Wanderers Sports Club so guests have access to the Club's facilities. We had a drink and a snack at the club which was quite busy, possibly as it was a Friday. Would definitely stay again if we needed to.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view across the grounds of the Wanderers Club.

This hotel is usually not cheap but we got a very good special on Skoosh. Well fitted, well run, comfortable and ideally situated between Rosebank and Sandton and a short walk to bars and restaurants.

I booked half a dozen rooms for New Years Eve and was not disappointed. The rooms were all well appointed and clean as well as being allocated close together. The staff in the restaurant and reception were very friendly and helpful as was our bus driver who ran us into Melrose Arch. The food in the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner was excellent.
No complaints what so ever.

We are firm believers in getting the basics right and reading your comments about the reception and restaurant STAFF as well as the driver being friendly and helpful is testament to this.
