The original cobbled entrance sweeps up all the way to the top of the Westcliff hillside with quaint balcony’s and private entrances woven with courtyards, fountains and gardens providing a wonderful sense of history. All of this atmosphere sets the stage for a weekend in Johannesburg’s most prominent suburbs at one of the world’s most legendary property groups, Four Seasons... More

Wow, what a place this is for sure. Having spent 2 nights here I can honestly say it is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. From the attentive reception staff, to the golf buggy ride to my room, everything was perfect. My room was a great size, the bed was lovely and comfortable, wifi is quick........can't fault... More

An absolutely superb hotel, and one of the best city-based Four Seasons property anywhere. Stayed two brief visits over a period of a week. Service was outstanding, staff remembering and carrying out requests made on the first visit. Regular rooms were very spacious and comfortable. It is an unusual spread out property, on a hill, but no problem getting around,... More

I stayed in the hotel for a night with my wife - a Saturday evening. The staff were very friendly and professional, the room was very pleasant and the view from the room fantastic. We had dinner at "The View" restaurant, where the food was exquisite.

Lovely rooms (a bit dated as it relates to tvs, electronics...but no matter), great food, great pool. I was able to stay there for a business trip...but it really is more of a vacation hotel. No complaints whatsoever. Recommend it without hesitation!

We stayed at the hotel for one night, what a treat! The attention to detail in everything that was done was extraordinary. The service can not be faulted, and the rooms are spacious and beautiful. We went to the spa and had a massage, the setting in the spa was amazing- Its world class.

Always a pleasure staying at the Four Seasons Westcliff Hotel. I would like to commend the front office manager Theunie Marias as he did his utmost to assist with every request in the friendliest and most efficient manner. His proffesionalism and calm demeanour with all guests is to be noted. The general manager took out time to come to the... More

I stayed here for the 2nd (or is it 3rd?) time this year and I just love this hotel. The spa is now open and although I didnt use it I had a look around and it is beautiful with a 25m lane pool. A new restaurant opened - View - and the food was gorgeous, as was the wine... More

The hotel is located in Westcliff, a rather remote and very gentrified residential area. Being up a hill you get a stunning panoramic view of the surroundings. This is a resort and as June is really a cold month it was so empty it was eerie. I was expecting a subdued version of the Four seasons in Paris or Milan... More

This hotel deserves the award for the "Best New Hotel" in the world! It is not just a hotel, but a village within secure walls. We stayed for two (2) nights in May, 2015. The rooms were very elegant and comfortable. The bed was the best ever; the service fantastic and friendly, and the restaurants on the property were so... More
