I stayed at this hotel for 10 days on business. The room was very comfortable and the amenities were very good. The wifi was fast and the hotel generator came in handy during the load shedding. There was always a wide variety of breakfast options and the shuttle service was very convenient. I'd recommend staying in this area as it... More

This was my second stay at this hotel in two years, I don't remember having any complaints the first time. The rooms are comfortable and the food is good but... The entertainment quality needs some work, there aren't many options of TV channels, there was nothing in the mini bar and the tub was clean but I personally get freaked... More

Five of us stayed here for only one night, but I was so satisfied I would stay again without even looking for alternatives. Set back off the street, it looks small, but has its own restaurant, not only for the breakfast included with the room, but they also served lovely lunch and dinner. The locale gives off a feeling of... More

Dear Charles W, Thank you for reviewing our hotel again on Tripadvisor. As explained in my response to your previous review, we are in the process of improving our TV systems, however it is not merely a case of adding channels as the current system is maxed out. This means that the entire system has to be replaced, including wiring... More

We needed to be in Sandton over the weekend and found the Falstaff perfect for our needs. Well-located away from the bustle of the shopping malls and offices, but in easy reach of everything by shuttle. Prices very attractive. Staff friendly and helpful. Very comfortablr for a short stay.

I needed a place to stay for two nights and needed to have my dinner in house. The Falstaff worked out just fine. The meals were quite fancy but easy to select Salad starter and a good low carb main was just perfect for me. The downstairs bar lounge area is very comfortable and the Whisky rang is adequate Staff... More

A boutique style hotel, away from the main tourist areas of Sandton and Nelson Mandela Square in Johannesburg, but still within easy reach of all the main shopping malls. Slightly awkward to get to, as whilst the address is shown as Rivonia Road, Johannesburg, the entrance is at the rear of the property, via a secondary road, which can be... More
