Score from 570 reviews Excellent
Poor Service, lack of interest in customers, unfriendly staff, impossible to get room service to pick up phone
it is within easy reach of Sandton and just across from the JSE.
the hotel has dated, though it is a country hotel, the door have scratch marks which can be an eye sore.
Excellent all round.
Nothing springs to mind.
Tranquil, and comfortable environment.
Having to walk all the way from parking to reception for check out. Why did the officer at small office located at entrance from underground parking not help me check out there because it was convenient(closer to the parking)? 2. There was no signage pointing towards the rooms 1300-13something …this was a nuisance as it was my first time there ,hence had to really find out the hard way.
Efficient and well located
Booking.com booking not registered on hotel system.
You need to get staff that can speak and understand english And speak Iit. Service from house keeing and maintenamce took forever.
The location is superb while the staff are ready to listen all the time and followed by action. Similarly the Hotel is clean.
Breakfast would have been packaged with the room rate. The idea of charging half of total no. of days/room rate is really not what obtains in most countries, it is not a good practice especially when no-show occurs or change in date of arrival.
people shouting at me while I was busy to book in to take my car away
I was travelling alone but felt really comfortable because the staff were so welcoming and helpful, I always had someone to talk to! From the chatting shuttle driver who collected me from Gautrain station through to the porter cracking jokes, helpful concierge, restaurant staff and management, they were the best part of my stay.
Friendly and very helpful staff. Location was great and close to the convention centre and Mandela Square.
Price of breakfast was expensive as compared to restaurants in Mandela Square. Price of transportation from hotel to Randburg to guest were very expensive.
Porter took us to the lift and explained the way from there, not offering to carry luggage. Run down feeling to the room, very yesteryear. Kettle takes forever, small bath, etc
1. Location is excellent 2. Porters and guards very friendly.
1. there was no hot water in the morning. 2. The receptionis was not helpful and clueless on things at the hotel. 3. There were no coffee/tea in the room. 4. The toilet in the first room were not clean. 5. There were not enough towels in the room
The staff and their service are excellent
It was quiet,relaxing and helpful staff. Nice beautiful rooms, comfortable bed.
No electric kettle that comes standard in the room. Room service kept knocking and checking if we were out before we checked out.
Rooms clean in very good location.
No mineral water in the rooms
Great location, really safe and super close to everything. Was a 5min walk to Mandela square, and nearby malls.
Housekeeping were not very friendly almost rude. Called to complain about a problematic main light which kept flickering. No one showed up and only came through after a second call out. When gentleman finally came through he climbed on side table with dirty shoes fixed the light got off table and didn't bother to clean it up afterwards. Another lady expressed irritation we wanted to use the lift on the day of checkout as we had suitcases and this was even though we got there before she did. She acted as though the lift was only to be used by cleaning staff and not guests. No value for money as the price of the hotel room alone cost nearly the same as an apartment in the nearby area. They ought to add breakfast at least.
1. locations 2. staff 3. confortable
1. The transfer from Hotel to Or Tambo international airport is NOT FOR FREE! 2. Breakfast was not included in the price. very expensive
It's close proximity to sandton shopping centre.
very comfortable hotel and luxurious setting with some historic flair
the area around is not very lively and feels strange to me. I prefer places like Melville where walking around is easier and the atmosphere is social and very inviting.
Their guest relations in particular stood out head and shoulders from other hotels I have been too!
friendly staff always wanting to assist.
construction noise early morning 06:45. sleep interupted.
Comfort, position and very friendly staff. It's home from home. Will definitely stay their again.
Can't say there is anything we did not like.
Country after 7
