....and I really didn't think that you could improve on perfection but the Atholplace team have exceeded themselves. Since my last stay in January 2014, the property has undergone a complete refurbishment and not that it needed improving but now there is a warmth and soul that is completely exemplified and elaborated upon. The rooms are absolutely stunning: massive, luxurious,... More

I visited AtholPlace with a friend before going on Safari and had the pleasure of spending a few nights there. I can not recommend this hotel enough. Not only is it situated in the most ideal location in Johannesburg-close to sandstone city-but the service and food was impeccable. All the staff are welcoming and go the extra mile throughout your... More

I had the honor of staying a night at the AtholPlace Villa while the Hotel was under renovation a few months ago. First off, this is the most beautiful and comfortable place I've seen in Johannesburg.
