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. But what really sets AtholPlace apart from the rest is the attention to detail and the feeling of being welcomed as part of the... More

Athol Place is the perfect place to have a good's night sleep before going to the bush. Its peaceful location and wonderful garden is just what I needed after a longhaul fight. Thank you so much for your wonderful service.
