Just everything is right here. Location, the staff, the food, the rooms. We had a very pleasant stay here coming directly from Switzerland on the 25th of December. The dinner was excellent and we really could relax.

this was my first stay at this Hotel in Johannesburg, and I was absolutely delghted. We stayed in the Madiba/Presidential suite, and it was just about perfect. The staff greeted me A fist time stay) with 'welcome home' and they meant it! I am already looking forward to my next opportunity to stay.

Room Tip: treat yourself to a suite you will never regret it!

I stayed over for a business conference and it was all that one would expect from such a well managed property. The attention to detail the sea shells , the mirrors .... The rooms are well appointed and well thought through. Thank you Sonette for a fantastic stay. I will be back.

Wow what a sensational hotel. This is a very special place to stay in JNB and will more than likely be the only place we stay when visiting the area. Great service and food, friendly staff and nothing is a issue. Even requesting a birthday cake without warning. Great Pizza too!

I stayed here with a friend for one night (although we got separate rooms) and I can't say anything bad about my stay. This is a boutique hotel and they pay attention to the smallest of details. I was lucky enough to get the room with the outdoor terrace and jacuzzi which was a real treat after being in the bush for a couple of weeks. The staff are just fantastic and treat you like royalty. I cannot recommend this hotel enough!!
