From the moment I got there til I left, I was treated like family. The staff are friendly, hardworking and wonderful. They arranged for cars, adapted well when plans changed and the food was good. I will come back!

Great decor, huge rooms and very helpful and friendly staff. Especially Louise. We would stay there again. Only drawback was the location, if you don't have a car that is. A little far from downtown, though in a nice neighborhood.

This is my second stay at Villa Simone. I am absolutely in love with the decor, so exquisite, rich in warmth and stature. You only ever see rooms and decor like this in the movies, what a delight to experience. The Gatsby piano lounge and nightclub is beautifully decadent, rich, lush and full of passion and excitement! I expect to... More

When my husband and I first visited Villa Simonne we were amazed at the friendliness of the staff and the feeling of peace we felt. As we were looking for a venue to have a family re-union we straight away felt that Villa Simonne was perfect. The staff were very accomodating as far as the children went and they virtually...

Been here for 4 nights on a business trip. The place is ok, the staff is kind. The garden is very nice, the hotel maybe needs just a bit of a revamp. Unfortunately I was in Jozi for business so did not have enough time to enojoy the garden and the pool properly. The free wi-fi has been appreciated, it... More

I should start by saying that Villa Simonne is not exactly five star luxury but even those with such discerning requirements may be pleasantly surprised here. Villa Simonne is, as others have written in previous reviews, a home away from home. We stayed four nights for a wedding celebration and family reunion of sorts and for our needs it could... More

If you are looking for five star service, this is not the place for you. The villa is a boutique hotel, run very much as a family business. The décor is elaborate in the extreme - quite different to any other hotel of this kind. The staff are friendly and hospitable, very welcoming, and always prepared to do anything that... More
