The Four Season in Johannesburg is among my favorite places to stay. It combines great luxury with a very nice atmosphere and exceptional service. We stayed here with my wife for 2 nights and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Our room was lovely with an opulent bathroom. Service was particularly good and very professional. We had breakfast which... More

The best hotel in Joburg but you do pay for the service and experience and personally if I am travelling on business I think there are better value alternatives, but if travelling for pleasure this can't be beaten

The rooms and views are stunning. I had about 2 acres of marble in the bathroom and the view over the zoo was stunning. Everything in bloom and lovely. The breakfast options were massive and literally you could eat here for a week and never touch the same thing twice. The prices were amazingly reasonable.

I stayed at The Westcliff when it was run by the Orient Express group. A stunning property in a great location, overlooking Johannesburg Zoo and park land. The hotel is set amongst sprawling landscaped gardens. Some of the hills are quite steep, but there are plenty of buggies available to shuttle you around the property. The property is safe, with...

My husband and I loved this place - very serene and excellent service. Everybody made sure we were comfortable and we have everything we needed. The food was great too. But the restaurant's setting is it's best feature. LOVE the view of the city. Quite breathtaking actually. My husband and I stayed here for 3 or 4 nights in 2011... More

What a view from the terraces and pool area. I just love the view over the forest that is Johannesburg to the north. A cold bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and a light lunch and last Wednesday was just perfect.

Have stayed here several times. The place is unique in that it was not designed as a Hotel but was intended to be a community. Friendly but dignified. Great views of the zoo etc from high up on the hill. Because of it's hillside location you can call for golfcart transportation day or night! Wonderfully large rooms with careful service.... More

The Westcliff has been bought by Four Seasons and is closed for a year for renovations, which were, in fairness, required. I am writing this review as a thank you for the wonderful times and memories I had there over the years. Work got me to Johannesburg very frequently for a while, and since that time a friend took me... More
