“Best Hotel in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

As an Political Party we have attended a Conference in this very hotel , its stylish, very clean and quiet and i rate it as the best hotel ever ... Compare to the Sun Hotels i went to in Sandton ...they are way far than what i saw and experienced in The Lakes Hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Lakes Hotel and Conference Centre, only 10 kilometres from Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport, is on the banks of the Benoni Natural Lakes and adjacent to the Benoni Lakes Golf Club. It is a recent addition to the growing African Sun portfolio of hotels in South Africa.In an impressive setting, its 144 rooms and conferencing facilities (including wireless internet) for up to 500 delegates make it an ideal “escape” from the central business districts of Sandton and Johannesburg, only 40 kilometres away. On site tennis courts, swimming pool and, unusually, water skiing facilities, are complemented by the nearby golf course, bowling greens, squash courts and even horse-riding facilities. And the Emperor’s Palace Casino is only 8 kilometres away!The Lakes is now looking to capitalize on its unique location (a short drive from South Africa’s main gateway, O.R. Tambo International Airport, and in close proximity to the biggest commercial and business centre in Africa…Johannesburg) by attracting the tourist and leisure traveller.While not neglecting its main focus (an efficiently run conferencing facilities in a country setting) its location on the banks of Benoni’s natural lakes and, uniquely for a Johannesburg hotel, offering water skiing facilities makes it a natural playground for “get away from it all” urbanites and foreign visitors alike.Its 144 fully-serviced en-suite rooms are air-conditioned and equipped with satellite television and tea and coffee making facilities. The seven-days-a-week laundry service is a boon for guests arriving after overnight flights from all over the world, as is the 18-hours-a-day room service. A la carte dining and a traditional African Sun breakfast buffet cater to all tastes and the Sundowner Bar, overlooking the lake, is a popular spot for that pre-dinner cocktail or later nightcap. With airport transfers easily arranged, The Lakes Hotel and Conference Centre is an ideal introduction for visitors to South Africa and an even more ideal location for a short or long weekend stay, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. ... more   less
