We stayed at the hotel for two nights and were spoiled to bits. It was a wonderful experience for and we went there for my husband's birthday. We could have any better and made the best choice ever. Thanks to all the staff members: the waiters, the spa staff, the wonderful breakfasts and dinners.

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

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!

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
