We stayed for 3 days and found the hotel to be fairly well run with friendly staff. The buffet breakfast was very good with lots of choice. Although we did not get around to trying it out , the pool looked very inviting and the grounds were pleasant for an evening walk which we did each night. The Wanderers Club was available just next door, a 100 metre walk away where you could sample a good variety of meals either in the restaurant or the bar and prices were very reasonable. Staying at the hotel gives you temporary membership and those younger travellers could enjoy all the sports offered. The Rosebank and Sandton Malls are nearby and reception will organise a limo to take you there and back, safer than using a taxi from a stance! The only blot on the copybook happened one evening when we were relaxing in the room. My wife was having a bath and I was in a state of undress when there was a knock on the door and "Can we come in?" . I shouted "No" but 2 female staff members entered "looking for something in the room"!! So I had to ask them fairly forcibly to leave. This was the only thing to spoil an otherwise pleasant stay and was probably a one-off. Would reccommend to anyone and suggest you look out for the weekend deals on the Protea Hotels website to get the best rates.
