Sadly this hotel is sliding down a slippery slope. The food quality continues to deteriorate and I'm starting to question the safety and security of staying there given some of the elements one see's in the bar area. I will not stay here again.

It's a nice hotel, great food. But the best thing about this hotel is the free shuttle service within 10km radius of the hotel. This is extremely useful if you are visiting from out of the country and hand business meetings around. No need to stay in a crappy venue hotel. I'd stay here every time of am on a... More

We booked into this hotel for 3 nights as it was very close to the conference we were attending. First appearances were very good; nice patio, beautiful gardens and ponds, good furnishings and adequate room. But then things went downhill particularly when we received the bill for a couple of drinks - R 45.00 for a 500ml Castle Draught is... More

The visit started well enough, however the door to my room didn't close properly. The query was not really resolved with any sense of urgency or empathy, although I was eventually moved. Room service menu not really designed for variety for a single person. The breakfast was okay but some fresh fruit would have been great. The inclusive shuttle and... More

A good, large business-oriented hotel, close to the freeway halfway between Johannesburg and Pretoria with efficient service, plenty of free parking and a decent, underutilised gym. The rooms are a reasonable size and a long walk from reception. Some of them don’t require staircase navigation to get to. The bed and shower are fine and my room, which faced the... More

this hotel would be a reasonable 3 star rooms neat, fairly small. Reastaurant definitely below standard. apart from food selection at the buffet that is poor, serving trays were on empty early in the evening. Cockroaches at the juice bar. Joghurt served of low quality. Service by gate personell uncurteous and 'millitaristic'. The manager of this place needs retraining

I always stay here when I am in SA / Midrand on business. Convenient, clean and tidy. Staff are always good and sort things out if needed. Wifi was a bit slow and took some time to get into. Didn't eat in the restaurant in the evenings, but enjoyed breakfast each morning

As a first time traveller to Jo'burg with business nearby, I let the company decide the place. Makes absolute sense if you are working with one of the companies in the area. First the pros - some of the staff are good and attentive with a genuine interest in solving problems; the transport desk and the guest relations in particular.... More
