“Great Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

My staff and I used The Residence for a workshop on 21 February 2012. From the minute we arrived until we left, we received excellent service that I have not experienced from other venues. The staff were great and attentive, the food was excellent, the facilities were top notch and the setting and ambience beautiful. I can definately recommend The Residence and my team from Alexander Forbes will use it again. I will also recommend it to others! Thank you again!

This exclusive small boutique hotel is a must for any traveller or business person. You are made to feel welcome from the minute you arrive until you depart. The rooms are fantastic and some of the best in Johannesburg - spacious, luxurious and huge! The little extras in the rooms a big plus. Love the coffee machine in the room, selection of complimentary drinks in the mini bar, free wifi and breakfast on the terrace in the sun. The inhouse Spa is also fantastic. My favourite rooms are 1, 4 and 5. Like staying in your rich aunt's mansion...

I recently spent a weekend at The Residence in Johannesburg.
What an experience! Wonderful facilities, excellent fittings, dedicated staff, wondeful food.
I have stayed at more expensive hotels and guesthouses, but have never experienced this level of dedication and personalised care that was part of this weekend.
