Only one out of the multitude of staff was friendly and helpful, others were stand offish and unhelpful, bordering on rude. The hotels child friendliness is very misleading - the play area you see in the pictures is not the hotel, it is the affiliated restaurant across the parking lot, making it impossible to send your child to play without...

Was so impressed (and that does not happen often) - great hotel made great primarily by the wonderful staff there. Customer service off the charts. Well done GCMS - I will be back. Highly recommended as a single person hotel too.

Like most hotels there are positives and negatives: The positives - Check in was painless and the receptionists are very friendly. There is free Wi FI albeit limited. There is a Italian restuarant not operated by the hotel within the property of the hotel - you can order room service if you require. The negatives: The room I had faced... More

Stayed at this hotel many times now. It's your typical garden court hotel, with many of the familiarities of the brand. The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood abt 10min drive from Sandton city and shares an (outdoor, unreserved) parking space with Pappa's pizza, which can become quite crowded over the weekends. Service at the range can range from... More

Had a 4 night stay at this hotel. It was quite comfortable; the bathroom and especially the bathtub were rather small. I loved the shower though :-) The staff were very friendly, caring and obliging; any requests were responded to very promptly. That was very impressive. Check-in was very quick (around 10pm on arrival date). Breakfast was ok, though after... More

Arriving late with outstanding work that needed to be completed for the following morning, the hotel offered me a good combination of a workstation and a comfortable room at a reasonable price for the area. The free wifi was a great relief and enabled me to meet my deadlines with ease
