I have recently stayed here for about 16 nights. The room I was allocated was a normal room right at the end of the corridor so it was wonderfully quiet and the bed was extremely comfortable. The room is quite large as is the bathroom and furnished in a fairly traditionally clean and acceptable manner. However one of the problems... More

We stayed here for 1 night in September and found this hotel to be very comfortable. Room was large as was the bathroom. The hotel seems to cater for business travellers in the main and there was a few groups the night we were there. But this really didn't impact on the service at all - we had dinner in... More

Although far from perfect, there is something quite charming about this hotel. Although most of our boxes were ticked, Management could tweak a few kinks and take this hotel to its full potential. The hotel and its rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfast met our expectations. Housekeeping could be erratic but very responsive. The complimentary WI-FI's connectivity was not always... More

I stayed here for about 2 weeks in September and I liked the hotel. They have a nicely maintained central garden where you could relax and enjoy the sun, watch the fishes and a turtle in the pond. Breakfast spread is decent, very helpful and prompt staff. They also provide complimentary shuttle to nearby places such as Nelson Mandela Square.... More

Overall an 'OK' hotel; rooms clean (but tend to be dark); hotel grounds generally well kept; however, the the hotel is a bit of a 'standalone' with no restaurants within close proximity (wlaking distance). Breakfast operation is generally poorly run - limited selection and inefficient staff. Fitness facilities OK, but hardly impressive - pool not suitable for serious lap workouts.

Spent one night there, very comfortable room with a warmed shower towel rack in the bathroom, all at a very reasonable rate. Close to the Apartheid museum and you can get a taxi for about 400 Rand for 3 people round trip.

have been at Quatermain many times and it is always a nice experience. Friendly and helpful staff, location in the nice Sandton area and a hotel which looks more like a cottage, with red bricks. Actually doesn't make you feel you're staying in a hotel....and that's a good, unusual feel. They have good facilities for business meeting, small gym, bar... More
