“House racing as a form of relaxation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

It was indeed very nice to be at Turffontein, it is a nice place visit expecially during horse racing big events, the environment is good, and combined it for a booking in a best guest house, My choice today is quest house for accommodation. otherwise, in Johannesburg and the surrounding there many best restuarant and cafe. you have the choice as long as you can afford for quality, you will indeed get it. To those who have sufficient money. I recommend that you go out and enjoy your hardwork. it rewarding.

“Excellent workshop/meeting venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

We attended a full day meeting here last year and found it one of the best venues in Johannesburg. Parking was easy and the rooms well signposted. We were greeted with delicious tea and snacks in a huge airy central foyer and the room we were in was spacious, clean and well prepared. It overlooked the race course which was wonderful. Lunch was a treat with the same view and an outstanding buffet ready at exactly the right time. Staff were friendly, bottles of water available and the AV system worked well. This is not the first time I have been here as it is a favourite with our organisation and I have never been disappointed. There are often two or three rooms being used by different organisations and yet you never feel crowded and there is plenty of space in all the walkways and foyers.

“Tricky area but impressive catering”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

It is south of Johannesburg and not very easy to get there. They have a number of hospitality suites and these are very good value with a terrific view of the race course and the city behind it. We attended a business conference there and appreciated the catering.
