Although AtholPlace was already a great property,I am convinced that Morukuru family will bring it close to perfection. Already at this stage it ihas acquired the well deserved Relais & Châteaux status. Situated a 10-minute drive to Sandton it is conveniently situated for Leisure and business guests. The rooms are massive and are stylish decorated in neutral colours and African... More

The staff at this hotel were polite and efficient. They weren't exceptionally warm or welcoming, but they performed their jobs well. The food was very good in the restaurant. The rooms were large and inviting. They could have been vacuumed more adequately, but that is my only complaint in terms of cleanliness. We asked the manager to book us a... More

I just spent 5 days in Atholplace Boutique hotel on a business trip in Joburg and it was an amazing experience. The hotel and the rooms are lovely and luxurious (the room was bigger than my appartment back home!) but the true gems are the staff.

AtholPlace is a quiet oasis yet with all the shopping of Sandton nearby. The property is in a nice area with very friendly staff. The chef makes a 3-course dinner that is quite tasty and the morning breakfast is bountiful. Tateful, eclectic design style.

The best place to relax. Andrew, Heidi, Cynthia and all their staff looked after us fantastically, nothing was too much. The food is impeccable, for such a small place, their chef is definitely to be recommended, best breakfast I ever had, breads and pastries are made in site. The decor throughout the hotel is superb, really felt welcome, certainly a... More

I stayed at AtholPlace briefly during a day visit to Johannesburg last year, so we found ourselves again when I was back in Johannesburg this year. I had a great experience last time, and wasn't sure if it would be the same case again on a longer trip, but found it to be just as good, perhaps better. Again, all... More

A charming and comfortable small hotel with excellent staff and a great chef. The modern and refined decoration gives character to the place and, at the some time, is light and non-oppressive. The garden with old trees and full of birds is very relaxing. A pity the pool was not well treated ....

On my trips to South Africa, we often overnight in Joburg on the way in and out of the country. Last year, on the recommendation of a very stylish friend in Joburg, we booked into Athol Place. It is located in a very safe, upscale residential neighborhood near to Sandton. The small and luxurious hotel has a great, contemporary design,... More
