We stayed at this hotel for one night before heading for the Kruger. The hotel has spacious gardens and many nooks and crannies including a library. Our room was quiet and spacious, about five minutes walk from reception. We had a comfortable bed and a powerful shower which was just what was needed after a long flight. The restaurant was...

We went on a four day business trip. The hotel was fine, clean and neat. The rooms were a long walk from the reception. Breakfast was average. We have left cash in the room safe to find that 4 days later (right before checkout) cash was stolen from the locked safe. We have locked it with a code, and only... More

One of my favourite places to stay deserving high praise. Some of the staff should get six stars Slow wifi costs it half a star and the restaurant another half. Complete refurbishment of the restaurant last year seems to have resulted merely in changing the carpet and painting it grey. Food is overly fussy and they could not prepare me... More

My overnight stay at the Quatermain met all my expectations. The service was good and the room was clean and more than adequate. The Wi-Fi worked well but on the slow side. The restaurant is pleasant as is the outside dining area and with excellent selection of first class food it is a place I would keep in mind if... More

My stay at the Quatermain was a pleasant one. Good attentive service, comfortable room just like the many previous visits. On the minus side, I hate those liquid soap dispensers and their wifi reception is the pits. Just not good enough! Their restaurant is great though with top quality dishes without exception.

If you are looking for an old style feel of a hotel, this is it. The outside is charming and not as clinical looking as otber hotel. Brownstone buildings and beautiful gardens. The place is well maintained and very very clean, staff is friendly. Good conference facilities. I was put in room 207, near the pool so it gets noisy... More

First stay for me but I will use them again. Strong business focus and extensive conferencing. Nice garden in the centre of property and rooms more than adequate. Has a bit of a colonial (Kenyan) feel to it and nice atmosphere. Bar busy and not particularly user friendly if there is a crowd. Staff willing and competent and it looks... More
