I will always remember the great breakfast I had on the terrace of the room during a morning when the sky could not be more blue.... Simply great view of a city that I have been visiting regularly for the past 12 years. Did you know that Johannesburg is the largest garden of the world? Originally it was a haut... More

We missed our overseas flight, our family of 4 were stressed. Without luggage, coming from a 3 week Namibian expedition in unwashed safari gear. We were still professionally greeted, despite our very organic smell and look. Centurion had made a mistake, giving us wrong information that this was not part of their program. We took a chance, going by taxi... More

This hotel reopened after renovations, becoming the first Four Seasons in South Africa. The property is in a very nice spot, with a good resort-type feel. Likely the best choice in Johannesburg, with room for improvement. ROOMS - Stayed in a suite. It felt a little weird to see that the bedroom area had been perfectly renovated and is certainly...

The hotel is really a nice hotel. It's been recently renovated. The rooms are really nice. I found the room size to be a little small but the suites were really great. I would recommend booking a suite depending on your pocket. The hotel atmosphere was really great with views to die for. Even the RESTURANTs were great. The service... More

We received a very warm welcome from all the hotel staff, the property is amazing and it seems to be in Beverly Hills. Our room with pool-view was cozy and luxury, the bed was really comfy, one of the best ever "tested". We had a SPA treatment, really nice experience. We'll be back for sure.

We went back to the Westcliff after a disappointing stay in December 2014 during the re-opening. To say this visit was top class is an understatement. All staff were on top of their game. well done - Westcliff is back to where is belongs. At the top - as a worldclass hotel. The brunch is just fantastic - highly recommended... More

My wife and I are avid Four Seasons fans and swear by the perfected quality of this awesome brand... However, since check-in we've felt like we're staying in some awkward knock-off version. We've previously stayed at the Westcliff (when it was under previous management) and loved every aspect of it, although it felt a bit dated and like it needed... More

Enjoyed two nights at the world-class Westcliff en route back to the US. The luxurious rooms, elegant dining and attention to detail put this Four Seasons property in the upper echelon of global hotels. The staff all know your name within a day and no request is too inconvenient. The room was spacious with a superb view. Well appointed with... 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
