Im a critcial reviewer, having stayed in hotels all over the world, Ive latley become a bigger critic.
So please take tha into account when reading this review, in fact read my last review in the Cape Town in on the Square first. Then you'll understand why reviewing this place as AWESOME if no average occurence.
This hotel ticked all the boxes, stunning, well kept, attention to detail, character, welcoming and well equipped. But the easy stand out strength is the staff, they are nothing short of amazing, every one of them.
And this is a big statement, but the the BEST STAFF I have ever experienced, in the world, in a hotel. Nothing short of amzing. Consistantly happy, energetic, welcoming, attentive, thoughtful and helpful staff - and it was every single one of them
The experience is still fresh in my brain, as I went for breakfast this morning at souless hotel in Johannesburg on the last leg of my SA trip. As I approached a group of 5 chatting restaraunt staff to ask to be seated ( i had politley milled about first) then reacted liked pigeons and scattered in every direction. However every time I entered the room in Weltevreden any of the staff present practically ran to me, complete with mandatory huge smile, to see what they could do for me. I wouldnt have been surprised if breakfast ended with a hug.
I will go back again, and I will look forward to it!
Words cannot begin to describe my affection for this hotel and its staff.
Ps - make sure you ask to see the Porsche collection!
