“Right sized and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

Stayed at this absolutely lovely, non pretentious hotel in Sandton. The pub lounge was very comfortable, the rooms were roomy, clean, comfortable and well appointed. The courtyard around which everything derives has a nice pool and the fragrance of nice fauna. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant were nice as well Located near business but in residential estate.

This hotel provided everything I needed for my stay in Johannesburg. Safe location, very nice building and surroundings. Nice selection of meals for breakfast, good WIFI everywhere in hotel and very practical shuttle transport. Thanks to very helpful staff, my stay was enjoyable and I would definitely recommend this place. If I will go to Joburg again, this is hotel of my choice.

Thank you Quatermain.. We had a romantic night for two and it really was romantic. The room was perfect and had everything we needed. The suttle service also assisted to make our night unforgettable.
Had amazing dinner and breakfast. Loved the look of the hotel, it made us feel like we are far away..:)
Will go there again soon...

Been here a couple of times for work and I absolutely loved it. I was a bit uneasy when I was booked in here randomly by my work. It actually has since become a favourite place for me. Love the old colonial English feel that the hotel has. Definitely suitable for work related visits to Johannesburg.

We actually booked at Faircity Falstaff initially and I was a little uneasy when our reservation was moved to Faircity Quartermain as I chose Falstaff because of their great reviews. My fears were put to rest as soon as we were picked up in the free shuttle from the train station. The service we received from everyone at this hotel was nothing short of amazing. The room was comfortable and elegant with free in room wi-fi. We ate at the hotel restaurant our first night and it was so amazing we ate all our meals for two days at the hotel. I cannot say enough good things about Faircity Quartermain and would not hesitate to stay there again.

I recently stayed at the Quatermain and had such a peaceful time on a king size bed, beautiful bathroom with a shower and a bath. The hotel has so many places to chill, relax, soak in the sun, or take in the beautifula outdoors of this majestic hotel. The finishings are of a superior quality. The bar has a wide range of drinks, and there is a huge area to relax and enjoy your drink. The free shuttle service to Sandton City and free wi-fi makes this a rare boutique hotel. It is close to Sandton City and the free way. Our room wasn't ready at the time of check in and we got drinks on the house while we waited for about 10min.

Room Tip: Choose rooms from the new wing., further from the dinning area and swimming pool.

We had a great stay over the weekend. Our stay was purely for pleasure and not business. Rooms very spacious and clean. Hotel very warm and homely.
Staff very friendly. Food in restaurant was top class. Breakfast every day also nice and staff on breakfast duty very helpful and friendly. Definitely not our last stay at this hotel.
