“Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

This boutique hotel needs to receive the best publicity review one could ever dream up. The rooms are huge and very well appointed. The batroom is amazing and also huge. Juan and his team are beyond belief with absolutely nothing too much of a problem. The location in Sandhurst Sandton is generally very safe. The welcome by all the staff was very warm and the setting of lush gardens and outdoor relaxing area truly amazing. Value for money was just amazing
it was easy to entertain guests and colleagues and ideal for the business traveller as well as the holday maker.
Good WiFi reception was available iin every room and the food was very acceptable
There was no airconditioning so on a hot evening the room could be a bit warm but a fan was in room -- this should not be a deterrent
Well done Juan and Sandton Boutique Hotel - you are just an amazing team
I will be back when next in Joburg

I found this place through TA and it had 5* reviews and it is excellent but a little hit and miss! The staff especially the chef,come very helpful chap Ashley was very very good and exceedingly helpful. My wife arrived some hours before me to find that they didn't appear to have our booking, but Ashley came to the rescue, sorted things out and even made my wife lunch free of charge. I also booked my wife in to the spa which she tells me is excellent, she was certainly on cloud 9 when I arrived! All in all this is a beautiful guest house right in the middle of Sandton, the staff are FANTASTIC, and whilst it is a little hit and miss it beats any 5* faceless chain hotel. If you are passing through Johannesburg for pleasure or business and want something that is really friendly, good value and very beautiful look no further.

Johann and I just want to thank you all for the most incredible evening we spent hosted by you on Friday. We were treated like royalty from the first communication I received from Juan to the minute we left. Everything was just perfect. And there were so many unexpected little surprises that started with candles burning in our room and a welcome card and heart shaped sweets container on a heart shaped cushion on a table in our bedroom, to the romantic table setting by the pool. Not to mention the beautiful room we stayed in. So much thought was put into every detail of our stay which made it both enjoyable and memorable. The service was impeccable but not over bearing, allowing us to spend the quite/private time together that we needed. A home away from home. Thank you.

Hugs
Shane and Johann

had an awesome stay at 28a oxford.
service was great, felt like we were the only people there. My wife and i will surely make a plan to visit again.

close to sandton city and gautrain, where we had access to everything we might come to need that Oxford didn't have, but they had everything any case.

thank you so much

The Sandton Boutique hotel is lush, verdant, friendly, well intentioned and an absolute oasis in JoBurg's harsh concrete landscape.

The rooms are large, well appointed, full of character (high ceilings, thatched roofs, antiques mixed with witty modern pieces) and comfortable.

The owners are personable, interested, interesting and happy to roll up their sleeves and help in any way that they can.

The food is good (save room for cake), the company equally interesting and the whole thing is a stone's throw from places that you'll really want to see.

And all at about $110 a night

It's rare that I rave, but this is that rare occasion. Do yourselves a huge favor, and stay here

What a wonderful place! I stayed in this luxury guesthouse for 10 days and was thrilled! A very good business environment ( I had most of my meetings there, including a board meeting) combined with a beautiful environment and very service oriented staff. Praise for Marinus, nothing is ever too much for him and for Juan, who cooked us a delicious dinner for after the board meeting. I already planned to come back when I have to stay in Joburg for a longer period: my suite offered a separate sitting room with desk and coffee corner, so work is as easy as winding down with a glass of wine on the terrace after a hard days work. Thanks guys!
