    Milk in tray sour [ Quickly replaced though ] Three people in room but only two cups , two gowns . Air conditioner not working initially. For a five star hotel and at the price , we expected more. We went there to celebrate my sixtieth birthday . My wife phoned Thandeka and Lucy three times and asked for something special in the room [small chocolate ? a flower from the garden ] Unfortunately nothing was done.

    Staff very friendly . Accommodation spacious and clean . Very good area . Excellent breakfast. Comfortable stay.

    Beautiful venue and staff, but the breakfast spoilt the experience a bit for me.

    There were no gluten free options for breakfast, and the 'macon' was terrible. Yoghurt wasn't nice either. Rather use proper bacon. Breakfast was rather sub-standard for this destination.

    Room was comfortable. Friendly staff. 24 hour reception a bonus. Gardens are beautiful.

    We were a bit unpleasantly surprised that the new owners put a ban on alcohol. This was our 3rd visit or maybe even the fourth to this hotel

    The garden, the room, the friendliness of the staff

    The property has an old English country manor house style. This is undermined by the polyester table cloths and napkins at the dining tables. Linen would be so much nicer.

    The garden is beautiful and full of bird life. The room is large and well-appointed. The staff are very pleasant and helpful.

    Would have like champagne with our meal, even if it was non-alcoholic, as we celebrated our wedding anniversary, but understand the property is Muslim owned.

    Staff very helpful and friendly. Love the homely feel of the property.

    The place needs to rewrite its ethos. As being used so heavily as congress centre, its personality and focus has shifted into something that only business travellers benefit from. Which is a shame. The place has much much more to offer.

    The location is safe, quiet and that is really a pleasure in bustling Jburg. Place would be optimal for wedding venues and private parties, or people travelling with kids, the safety is guaranteed, and ultimately privacy. Certainly a place I understand being a home away from home to business visitors, who do not required super varied set of services on location.

    From the moment you arrive, it feels like you've been transported to some bygone time. The grounds are impeccable, the service makes you feel like you're the most important guest in the hotel and the rooms are luxurious. But what is most important is the attention to detail, such as the different snacks offered every night with turndown service. The location is a little out of the way from the hotspots in Johannesburg, Sandton, Rosebank but I used Uber to get around, which was easy, and the fact that it is a little out of the way helps one truly relax and unwind.
