“Home away from home”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

Luxurious but affordable boutique hotel in the heart of Sandton. The "go to" place to stay in JHB. Central, intimate and comfortable. A handyman to fix some broken window latches, doors etc would take this place to fabulous! It's quiet. If that's what you are looking for look no further. Flexible bespoke dining options.

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback and comments regarding your stay at AtholPlace Boutique Hotel. We are glad that you feel this is the 'go to' place to stay in Johannesburg. We are aware of the maintenance issues you have rightly pointed out in your feedback. After having taken over the hotel from the previous owners we are in the process of renovating and upgrading. We strive to keep disturbance to our guests to the absolute minimum and to bring the hotel to our high quality standards as soon as possible. We hope to impress you even more during your next stay with us. Kind regards, Rinse

Entire experience from the driver pickup, hotel stay to my departure was top notch. It was my first time back home from the States in 15 years and this was a wonderful re-entry into South Africa. The staff were lovely and professional, paying utmost attention to detail. This was a combo work-personal family trip and the hotel staff took great care of my jetlagged 7 year old daughter and husband. Food was delicious and fresh. Our room was luxurious and spacious and this is in comparison to many stays at Starwood and Morgans Group hotels. I will be returning to South Africa again this year and will be returning to Atholplace.

My single biggest gripe about being on the road constantly for work is staying at hotels where you are just a nameless, faceless number...AtholPlace is the complete opposite of this. From the minute you walk in the door, you are made to feel as if you are at home. Friendly staff from reception to housekeeping to maintenance men; huge, spacious rooms that are warm and welcoming; wonderful food and superb hospitality. It was such a pleasure to be away from home but felt like being at home while on my recent business trip. A superb addition to the Relais & Chateaux family. Thank you x

I stayed at the AtholPlace for the day, after a long overnight flight from London.

As my tired self got off the plane, I was met after customs by a friendly driver who had been pre-arranged through the hotel. Not only did he drive me safely to and from the airport, but gave me some history of Joburg as we drove through and pointed out the main sites.

I arrived at the hotel and the staff was so friendly and welcoming. I had missed breakfast, however, the chef whipped me up some food anyways.

The room was lovely, with large windows & ceilings, some overlooking the beautiful back lawn. The rooms were also very very spacious.

While I was only there for the day, I wish I would have had longer to enjoy this lovely hotel

You are welcome like a lost brother, the service and food are excellent and very professional. If you need the service of a business center they are at par with any big hotel. The rooms are well decorated, clean and spacious.
