Our first trip to South Africa, and we were apprehensive about safety. On the advice of a local friend-of-a-friend we booked the Clico. What a good referral! We had the Clico driver pick us up--perfect! We loved our garden-facing room and every meal we ate on property. Best of all, there is a lovely outdoor mall within walking distance (day... More

I recently held my 40th birthday party at Clico. From the beginning of my engagement with the hotel, everyone I dealt with has been very professional yet warm and accommodating, and the staff on the day of the function were particularly exceptional! The party was a huge success, largely due to Hilton, Trevor and John taking such good care of... More

I reserved at Clico because of the Tripadvisor recommendations. Maybe I had misunderstood, but it was nowhere near the Greyhound terminal and the railwaystation. Instead, it is situated in a pleasant suburban surroundings with big business hotels around. There is a well-equipped shopping mall within a walking distance. I was received by a very friendly and professional person who got... More

Spent 1 day at the Clico after an international flight en route to a safari camp. It is a lovely little gated property with nicely decorated common areas, inside and out. The rooms are all unique. Mine was well-appointed and had a small patio and large windowed bathroom. It was quiet and restful. Suggest the hotel post photos of each... More

Room basically inside the lounge under the staircase and the size of a stamp. Furnishings cheap. Everything is miniature size, even the safe is the side of a cup!

Once again attended the most amazing party at Clico. The food was absolutely outstanding (and we are very difficult customers!! )and the service was faultless - such friendly staff - had lots of laughs with them. The deck area where we ate was so special and unique and great atmosphere. Kids had such a ball too with great entertainment. A... More

When simple things go wrong and the staff just want to blame the guests, then you know its the wrong place to be staying and eating. Room was not ready upon arrival which was 5 hours after check in. Was told that an electric blanket would be on the bed, but there was none. The morning waiter got my order... More

An absolutely amazing weekend away to such a beautiful and romantic venue. The first thing to comment on is its proximity to the gautrain making it not even a 5 minute walk from the Rosebank station as well as 5 minutes away from the Rosebank Mall which made entertainment easy and there was no need for a car and the...
