beautiful hotel great service exquisite food
Friendliness of staff, and THE most amazing room and facitlities, and the most confortable bed I have ever slept in.
Absolutely loved this place...never stayed anywhere before where they get everything so right...brilliant and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Jo'burg.
From the water and free wifi in the pick up car to the beautiful suite, complimentary foot massage, complimentary amuse bouche in the room and choc and baileys type liquor by our bed everything was faultless and beyond expectation. The hotel is stunning and the staff couldn't do enough for us!
Attention to every detail that can possibly make your stay enjoyable. Good food (butternut soup and brownie are on top of my list, although shrimp dumplings and ostrich steak should not be disregarded) and complimentary Monis cherry to top it :) Awesome place, will definitely come back again.

Large suite Bed comfort Bath and bathroom Spa facilities General finish was perfect.
staff and service were the best we'd had on the whole trip restaurant/piano bar were excellent room was huge with an old school feel to it
I can not say enough nice things about the Residence! Wonderful property. Safe location. The staff was lovely and very accommodating.
From the greeting at the gate until the final goodbye every person served with a smile. The setting is very romantic and the food was most delicious. I highly recommend The Residence!
We stayed for one night- staff advised against going out at night on foot- not the hotels fault but wouldn't stay long in Joburg.
Attentive but not stuffy staff, attention to detail, food was excellent,great breakfast and reasonably priced delicious dinner, candles and mood lighting, turn down Amarula and choc, complimentary, water, sherry, Nespresso, foot massage ,etc. Old RR airport transfer. Just loved everything about it.
THIS HOTEL IS VERY VERY BEAUTIFULL AND ALL THE STAFF VERY GOOD. THANK YOU
Beautiful property with an attentive and professional staff.
food service was slow. particularly dinner. but food was excellent.
The milk for coffee at breakfast was burnt, and they could have washed my car..
You get exactly what you expect at The Residence - 5 star facilities with service to match. From the gate security with his top hat, to silent efficiency of the housekeepers, this is one of the best small hotels in the country. The rooms are large, double bathrooms (inside and out), and the décor opulent. Nespresso machines and a complimentary nightcap makes for wonderful touches.
The Residence Team has a gifting of hospitality! From the personal and warm welcome to the complimentary foot massage, the outstanding food to the mini-Amarula and choccies at turn-down, the service at all times was thoughtful yet unobtrusive. It felt as if we were house guests in a luxurious country home!!!
Mix up with my airport transfer as apparently I had not provided my flight number. My query would be that as I booked the transfer 6 months prior, why had I not been asked for this? The driver clearly blamed me and was quite argumentative
Spacious, comfortable with everything you could possibly ask for.
Quality of the facilities menu and food quality additional features - spa in room
Relaxation area would be needed after sauna
