We stayed at this boutique hotel 2 years ago and was absolutely knocked out by it - so much so that we recommended it to so many of our friends Yesterday we were leaving Namibia and I called the hotel at 8.59am (the joy of an iPhone) I was told that there was a room reserved for us - we... More

Attended a course over three days, but did not actually stay there at night. Security at the gate is tight and sometimes overzealous- need for a quicker response to visitors. The ambiance was wonderful and relaxing, especially the view from the terrace into the garden. The food which included teas both morning and afternoon as well as a five course... More

I passed by Johannesburg on the way to Tanzania for my honey moon and Le Chatelat was a great surprise. The hotel is gorgeous and has a very welcoming atmosphere. The staff makes you feel like your are at you own house and they are always willing to help you. The food is also delicious.

I had booked and paid in full more than a week in advance for my booking at Le Chatelat. On arrival the assistant looks at you whilst you are unpacking your luggage without even moving a muscle to offer any help. Upon wanting to check in I was informed that unfortunately they do not have a room for me as... More

Firstly we would like to apologise. It is the first time that this has happened due to our oversight. Our General Manager went down to the clients vehicle to greet him, to find 2 bags already placed on the ground, at no time would he have to not offered to assist. He was invited to come inside, to which he... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Le Chatelat for our wedding anniversary. We wanted somewhere local that was close to dinner spots and still felt like a break away. Le Chatelat was perfect. Though centrally located in Johannesburg, it felt like we were away staying in our own holiday home. Beautifully furnished with well maintained gardens, we enjoyed spending... More

All was handled with a smile. The service staff and the management team where the most wonderful and friendly people. I joined the other guests to a... More

I stayed over at Le Chatelat to attend a corporate event. I checked in the night before and was welcomed by the most friendly and helpful staff. There was a pair of well trained Jack Russell's that wanted to assist too... Whilst my bags where taken to my suite, I was shown around the guesthouse and feel as if I... More

Upon arrival, there is no-one to assist with your baggage. Once you enter the Residence, check in was smooth. The only conference venue on the property is situated next to lounge with doors opening onto the veranda and the inside courtyard. As we had the place to ourselves, it was quiet and we were not disturbed. The aircon in the... More

What an unbelievable experience. I treated my daughter to a night at this beautiful residence for her 17th birthday. The staff were unbelievable, making us a beautiful candlelit dinner and a candlelit bath for my daughter. Thank you so much Prince for making our stay so unforgettable. Besides the excellent service, our room, Suite 1, was immaculate and the beds... More
