Not an obvious location to stay if you do not know your way around this city and yes you need transport even if hotel has a driver who will take you anywhere in his nice German car for a fair price. Getting in and out of garage can be tricky but i had no problem was driving a small car.... More

The service was excellent and most things were of a good standard with the only criticism being the pillows and the length of the beds making for an uncomfortable nights sleep... The gentlemen at the front desk was very obliging with the various requests..

Was in Joburg on business and my normal accommodation was full so booked into the Ascot. Stayed at the Ascot before hand and it was definitely better. The hotel seems to be going down the tubes similar to the area. You don't see the owner, just the immigrant staff members who are only interested in securing your payment and nothing... More

When myself and the Fiance decided we needed a night away at a hotel little did we know what awaited us would be a night of interest. I shall begin by finding a parking. To say that it was difficult to find one on Grant Avenue would be like saying "Well Stalin was quite a naughty man".When Columbus set sail... More

Terrible location, not suited to business needs. Extremely arrogant owner, poorly trained staff. Avoid. There are many more cheaper options with greater value in surrounding suburbs. Parking is a nightmare, Grant avenue is degenerative, the atmosphere is hostel like. The hotel hides behind the facade of an uplift but in all honesty is a waste of money. Not worth the... More

We stayed at this hotel recently, the manager was very amenable and the staff very friendly. The room was large and spacious and well laid out. Really got great value for the price we paid, I'd recommend this hotel to all my friends and family

We stayed at the Ascot Boutique Hotel and it was really luxurious. Contemporary decor throughout common areas and modern design, quality plumbing, quality linens in the guest room. The only imporvements I would ask for is electronic chargers (phones, Ipad) at the bedside table & a 2nd luggage rack. The staff were attentive, helpful & arranged a tour of Soweto... More

A group of 7 did a two night stay at the Ascot. The facilities were very comfortable and the staff were very accommodating. We took full advantage of the hotel - using the gym equipment and everything. It was an excellent spot to work off our jet lag! A bonus of the hotel is their amazing restaurant/bar downstairs. The employees... More
