In comparison to the Twelve Apostle Hotel, staying at the Westcliffe Hotel came in as just above average/good. Brilliant hotel with excellent service that just fell short with a few service related flaws. But overall, a wonderful stay.

I didn't stay at this hotel. But I spent two days at the spa. It's the best spa experience I've had anywhere in the world. The atmosphere is magical, the sauna, ice shower, showers and three lounging areas are impeccable. The infinity pool is beautiful and the upstairs sundeck area overlooking Johannesburg's trees is so beautiful. I had an outstanding... More

Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff Johannesburg is without a doubt the best hotel in the city. We stayed there for 5 nights in Jan/Feb 2016 on the end of our South African trip. There's a lot of history to the hotel and Four Seasons has brought it back to its glory days with their multimillion dollars renovation First of all... More

This is a lovely, well maintained property set on the side of a hill. It's a destination in the sense you need a car to get around, you cannot walk to anyplace from here. (In South Africa the driver sits on the right side of the car like in the UK, with similar driving conventions on the road.) Room 202... More

We stayed at the Fourseason, Wescliff on Saturday the 30th January 2016. I was immediately impressed by the professionalism of all staff. Check in was very fast and efficient. The hotels location is absolutely stunning, overlooking JHB Zoo and Militry Musuem. Our room was very spacious and luxurious. The room opened onto a beautiful pool area, the outside public areas...

Property: The property itself is a very unique in terms of how it's laid out. There's a lot of history to the hotel and Four Seasons has brought it back to it's glory days. There are some areas that still need addressed though. The hallways carpet are a bit worn and look very tired. It's a small thing and sure... More

I have been trying out a lot of different hotels in Joburg but I must say this one takes the cup so far...This place is great for relaxing. It has a beautiful spa and the staff is quite friendly..The view is stunning! I loved the golf carts that take you around the hotel wherever you need to go. We were... More

Loved this place. The views are spectacular. Waiters were attentive and food was great. I love the separate areas around the restaurant. It has a great atmosphere. Try to catch it on full moon as the views are simply breath taking.

We stayed at this hotel on two separate occasions for one night each, over the Christmas/NY holidays on our way into and out of SA. Beautiful property with lovely rooms. Certainly not for anyone with mobility problems as it is built into the hills but fantastic for getting a great workout if you wanted to run the hills a couple... More
