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

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.

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
