Service and facilities amongst the best
staff were superb facilities vert plush fireplaces going in multiple rooms charming
in the posh residential neighborhood a bit removed from anything we did the Jburg neighborhood is a walled community of mansions- feels like ppl are living in fear- but that is the City not the hotel
A quiet retreat among the walled estates. Not pretentious All amenities one could hope for.
Only stayed one night
Most everything is exceptional. From the location, surroundings, beautiful hotel environment to the food and wonderful staff. We always feel at home here.
The wifi can be spotty at times...
staff was incredibly attentive. Rooms and entire hotel was lovely. A very refined experience.
an excellent hotel in every respect with a 5 star experience,i have stayed at many fine hotels but this was a cut above the rest,probably could rank amongst the best hotels anywhere in the world
Staff was wonderful….service was perfect, excellent food and we felt like royalty. Thank you all.
Upgrade the bathroom fixtures. Our bathroom sink had no water pressure.
Home away from home. Good combination of an old good-mannered manor with bits & pieces of privacy. I really appreciated hot water bottle in my bed, as it was a cold SA winter
Absolutely stunning hotel - the photographs do not do it justice. The staff were amazing, extremely professional, attentive and friendly.
The hotel is unusually laid out, but that is it's charm. Everything is just perfect, your surroundings are opulent, luxurious and the attention to detail is quite frankly outstanding. A credit to the owners. The staff are simply wonderful, and what was good to see was that they clearly enjoy a good employee / employer relationship. During our brief stay there, my wife and I were made to feel special, and that is why I wish we could have stayed longer. We cannot find fault with anything concerning the hotel, it's staff or facilities. Very highly recommended.
As a well traveled couple, we found this to be one of the most wonderful hotels we have ever stayed in. We'll go out of our way to stay there again.
Staff were very attentive. Food was excellent. Accommodation was superb. We would recommend and definitely will return.
An exceptional experience, highly recommended. Grand old home, great service, staff and food
I lived the whole environment. The staff were exceptionally neat, polite and very helpfull.
The Residence was one of the most wonderful hotels I have stayed in for a long, long time.
Wonderful place, perfect service. We really appreciated
Friendly and helpful staff. Great room. Lovely Breakfast. Home away from home.
This hotel is unique. Friendly, professional staff, fine dining and exceptional accommodation. I will always choose to stay at The Residence when planning a trip to South Africa. Even if I don't need to overnight in Johannesburg, I would opt do so just to have the pleasure of enjoying the luxurious comfort of this wonderful hotel.
Everything. Don't even consider looking at anywhere else if staying in JHB.
Nothing. Staff and facilities could not be faulted.
Most amazing staff!
The staff are so friendly and You fell so welcome. The rooms and the whole Hotel are just amazing.
They had problems with the WIFI but that was the whole area.
Very comfortable room - upgraded to junior suite. Fantastic grounds. Excellent food - both at Oasis for breakfast and Planet for dinner. Drinks at the outdoor patio. Resident ducks & goslings. Good concierge service.
Very busy with outside guests. Initially some minor issues with housekeeping requiring some follow up.
My husband and I had wonderful stay at The Residence. It's an absolutely beautiful and exquisite hotel. We were truly pampered there. The stuff there were very helpful and efficient.
Wonderful experience! Staff was great, the grounds and rooms beautiful and a fantastic overall experience.
Wifi was a bit unreliable and it was difficult to conduct work on it at times.
