Ideally located, calm locality, at the same time not far from busy business area. Gives vintage look, with well appointed rooms. Not a busy hotel, with 100+ rooms. Restaurant offers food of our choice. Courteous staff.

From the staff at the front desk to the porter to the staff in the restaurant they are just wonderful. Dinner tonight could not have been better. Butternut soup and then calamari and avo in a creamy sauce, just what the doctor ordered. Great hotel in all counts would recommend for business stays to everyone and you don't have to... More

I stayed in Quatermain for about a week on a business trip. The place is very old school in terms of architecture and you can feel they are proud of it as it is part of their decor. Very calm and peaceful, yet a bit boring with nothing to do at night except for going to the tiny bar. Rooms... More

The Quatermain Hotel is well positioned and the staff are universally delightful. The rooms are functional but dark - my last one looked out onto and up to a fortification wall! This means guests have to use electricity in order to light their rooms day or night. The wifi isn't wonderful - forget Youtube even if just to check a... More

Staying T the Quartermain is truly an experience. Everything about it makes me not want to go back and stay at one of the more popular chain hotels I have stayed at before. The rooms are sizeable, quality of decor and furnishing great, setting and tranquility unmatched for hotels in the market.

Had a very pleasant stay at the quartermain and was well looked after. Large rooms with great facilities and a very quiet garden court setting. Friendly staff and nice surroundings to relax in the grounds. Good free shuttle service into the centre which is only a couple of minutes away. Recommended for business trips or families.

We began our two week visit to South Africa at this hotel. It is an excellent place to stay. The staff are so friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was fantastic with an 'all you can eat' style buffet. They also run a complimentary shuttle bus on request which we used a few times. Nothing is too much trouble for the... More

This hotel is near but mercifully not right in the middle of the soulless concrete monstrosity that is Sandton. It's round the corner from the Morningside mall and set in some nice gardens. It has a small gym and even smaller pool but the place is friendly and serves nice food. It's got a pleasant courtyard to eat and have... More

Beautiful hotel, but we were I think the only tourists, because I think all the other people staying there were business men and women. By the way that isn't any problem and maybe it is the time of the year we were visiting (end of april). The Hotel is really beautiful very clean, good staff and beautiful gardens. The hotel... More
