This hotel had a nice ambiance and decor with great breakfast in the morning, but lost points for me with their hotel staff. Front desk is unprofessional and un-polite. Very stoic actually. Our room keys were not working when we arrived and the woman on staff didn't really try hard to get us into the room. In addition, we were... More

Beautiful boutique hotel. Stylish and professional. Friendly staff provided great service. Great spot for a quiet business lunch. Smallish menu to choose from, but enough variety for all tastes. Oxtail and Salmon comes highly recommended. Will be back

The beautifully furnished boutique hotel is stylish and has relaxed ambience. We went there for year end lunch with colleagues. The kingklip I ordered was not properly cooked, was sushi'ed. Found the supposed 2 smallish saffron prawns a let down. The dessert made up somewhat for the dull main. Rather order the oxtail or duck, generous meaty portion. Very tasty... More

Comfortable, well appointed rooms. Two restaurants to choose from; one grand and expensive; the other functional with regular fare. The lounge is a centrally located place to meet business clients. Its only about 8 minutes drive from Sandton City. Service is good. Rooms can be pricey - so you should enquire from the Reception Desk about their specially discounted offers.... More

Well the hotel looks so fabulous and did enjoy the chilling at the lounge with my friend, besides on being disappointed at the reception staff,which is the Indian lady was shouting at this other lady and judging from the situation,she looks like shes on training. I really felt sorry for her as she seem to do her best on making... More

The best thing about this hotel is the decor. The food is terrible. Also it advertises free breakfast but that's not true. The Management is doing it's best to take all it can from the client but gives the minimum! Location not too convenient if you are not driving and they will tell you they have free shuttle to Sandton... More

Very beautiful place homely, but didn't like the food. Despite all 5star from me. I would recommend. Peaceful indeed. Top of least in the whole of Johannesburg. If you can afford peace and tranquillity, the Marion is the place for you...mncwaaa

This is a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg but in a perfect location with easy access. The attention to detail is impressive. Food is delicious although I think the restaurant could use some updating. The rooms are luxurious and all amenities are well thought through. Would go back anytime.

My best friend and I arrived at the Marion on Nicol with high hopes of a great high tea to celebrate the end of 2014. Our first impression wasn't great. The parking lot and surrounding grounds are in desperate need of attention and weeding. We were welcomed warmly enough and led through to a fairly appealing central dining area where... More

Beautiful Hotel, lovely settings, great decor, wonderful food, great people to meet and simply just a wonderful place to be in. It's luxurious, beyond what I have experience before so, be prepared to be spoiled. We were there for an event, and dinner at the restaurant, I would have loved to stay the night, but could not, but, I give... More
