I stayed at this hotel while attending a conference. Total duration of stay was 2 days. As a conference venue it seemed to be very popular. There were up to 8 conferences on the go at the same time. Our conference room was a bit small for the 25 people but adequate. The catering was good as well. I have... More

Stayed at this absolutely lovely, non pretentious hotel in Sandton. The pub lounge was very comfortable, the rooms were roomy, clean, comfortable and well appointed. The courtyard around which everything derives has a nice pool and the fragrance of nice fauna. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant were nice as well Located near business but in residential estate.

Been here a couple of times for work and I absolutely loved it. I was a bit uneasy when I was booked in here randomly by my work. It actually has since become a favourite place for me. Love the old colonial English feel that the hotel has. Definitely suitable for work related visits to Johannesburg.
