I was at this hotel for a 2 day business meeting. This is a large complex with many rooms, spa, conference facilities and restaurants. For the size the hotel maintains a high standard. Staff are very courteous and everything is well arranged. But this is not a boutique hotel, so things can be a little rough and ready. My room,... More

I use this hotel for large groups as the Chief's Boma Restaurant is able to host large groups. Besides this, the cuisine at the Chiefs Boma is excellent and true South African. The hotel is well sited in the Sandton area and within 5 minutes of the Monte Casino shopping and gambling complex. The reception staff are friendly and provide... More

A must for anyone with a need for that get... More

Dont expect luxury at this hotel. The rooms have a musty odour and the bathrooms are tiny and dated. We waited almost 30 minutes for a Mojito as the barman, according to the waitress was extremely busy. We were then served ready mixed cocktails straight out of a packet. Overall the staff were friendly and the breakfast was ok. The... More

The Indaba hotel is the best kept family secret in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg. The rooms are excellent and the pool with its modern 'rim-flow' make for an excellent sundowner. The Chief's Boma is truly superb providing the anmbiance of a 5 star game lodge with matching quality and service .

We enjoyed staying at the Indaba Hotel although there were a few things that were disappointing. The shower drain was clogged and almost flooded. On the website it said that DSTV was available although there were only about 10 channels. There was loud sweeping outside our room (as there is a big gap under the door) early in the morning....

Beautifully presented Rooms and gardens, bird life and lake are really special and the gardens a beautiful. Food is wonderful and ambience relaxing. Conference facilities are good and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Room service food availability could do with some improvement but otherwise it is a wonderful place to stay. Luxurious!
