Conderence facilities are excellent and buffet menu is also great. The desserts are fantastic and the service effort is amazing. The view is phenomenal - hard to believe you're in the middle of a city :) Lovely experience, overall.

Stayed at this hotel for two days with my husband and baby. We arrived very early for check-in, and our room was not ready. We anticipated this, and just wanted to drop our bags off in the meantime. However, the staff decided to upgrade our room without us even asking! We went from a premier room to a luxury room with an early check-in to boot. This unexpected treat made our stay even more enjoyable, as we spent most of our time in the room.

Breakfast had many options, and the dining room was beautiful. The staff were efficient and very child friendly.

We did not have a chance to partake in the spa facilities as they were fully booked on the day we wanted to make use of it. We did take a tour of the place, and it looked luxurious.

The only negative is that there was a problem with the TV in our room, it kept loosing signal, so the picture would blank on and off at regular five minute intervals. This made it difficult to watch a movie in the evening. When we contacted reception, they sent someone immediately up, but he was unable to fix the problem as he was not part of maintainence.

This hotel, spa and golf club is "hidden" in a residential area of Johannesburg's wealthy northern suburbs. The room was large, comfortable and with a big balcony overlooking the golf course. There is both a spa, swimming pool and an excellent gym. The outdoor restaurant, also overlooking the golf course, was an excellent place to enjoy the plentiful breakfast buffet. The service was always very friendly, even if a little slow at times. All-in-all, one of the best hotel experiences I have had in a long time, and for a decent price too. Highly recommended!

This was our second year running, Easter Sunday Lunch, at the Ballata restaurant in the Fairway Hotel. This hotel and restaurant prides itself on modern metallic finishes and an architectural design of the highest standards! Pre-drink aperitifs can be enjoyed in the lounge or either their indoor or outdoor covered bar areas overlooking the manicured golf course fairways and practise putting green.

The tables are opulent, some, with wingback chairs and were charmingly decorated with an Easter gift box of scented pink sweeties and mini pink and white Easter eggs. Delightful live violin background music set a great mood.

Down to the food. Nothing puts me off a buffet more than when you get there last and it’s merely the remnants of a waste disposal site, needless to say, I was apprehensive that this year I may be disappointed!

It’s clear that Ballata, from the extensive selection of cold, hot and desserts on each buffet, is being run by qualified chefs. All the food is exquisite in preparation and replenished meticulously to the point that it never looked touched. I enjoyed large oysters, gravlax and duck liver and orange salad. My wife had Caesar salad freshly prepared to taste which was tempting. Quite simply there was such a wide selection words do it no justice so see the pictures (below) for a better idea. Once again the buffet selection was Easter lunch par excellence! The food selection was stupendous and the service was smooth and unhurried!

The Easter bunny even hopped in and made my sons’ day.

5 stars to the chefs, waitrons and management!
