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

I had an excellent, refreshing experience staying with you. Everything was super good; clean rooms, excellent friendly staff from the Front Office, Housekeeping & Restaurant. The Gardens were well maintained and always welcoming to take a chill and relax in a breath taking environment. However, the food was a bit of a challenge on some of the occasions especially the...

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 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.
