I booked the hotel for myself and some international guests. I hadn't stayed there before but the look of it ry won me over and it's just as pretty in real life. Rooms are small but comfy. Decor is beautiful but comfortable. Some of the staff were only too eager to please and things like the shuttle to the mall... More

Conveniently situated...not necessarily the best view...but the pools does make up for it a bit. Staff friendly, well trained and extremely helpful. Absolutely love the decor....and then just when you think this is it....they serve the food! One of the better meals I had in my lifetime...the goats cheese starter in phyllo was brilliant. The salmon wrapped around the kingklip... More

The beauty of place brings peace as soon as you enter the premises. The warmth and the well poised staff just keeps you on cloud 9. You are greeted with the beauty of the place and you never want to leave. The food was well presented and yummy and it felt so good to be greeted personally by the chef.... More

Thank you. We had a great time. Took my mom for her 75th birthday to the high tea. The planning before the time, the welcoming and the service was excellent. During the event, the waiters were constantly looking after us making sure that we do not need anything.

What a great place. I've visited this hotel about 4 times for Lunch and Spa. I have never been disappointed, perfect service, great food, quiet and private. The spa is superb, great and friendly therapists, intimate too. Joburg's treasure!

we visited the Marion for high tea, didn't stay over. we were excited when we saw the ad for high tea with sparkling wine so four of us took up the deal. Very beautiful hotel. Found the welcome somewhat lacklustre though. We were invited to wait for the rest of our party in the lounge and we were offered a... More

This little hotel in the heart of the best of Joberg is a wonderful surprise. We ended up here because my friend got sick and we had to move from the Saxon. After the Saxon I feared we would be so disappointed. On the contrary, it was a delight. Quiet, efficient and lovely with a charming bar and a great... More

on the surface appeared to be a nice boutique with staff willing to assist. however, management was totally unwilling to work with me or even talk to me when I had a unforseen change of plans immediately after booking the reservation. they informed me that there was demand for the room that I could not occupy, but they absolutely refused...

My review really only covers the restaurant at this really nice boutique hotel. It is a real hidden gem and the restaurant is a great window into the quality of the place. A review somewhere questioned the size of the dinner portions but I can say without fear of contradiction that this is not so. Portions are generous and the... More
