This hotel shows a lot of promise but doesn't quite deliver. Whilst it is true that it is in a good location, the views from the garden are nicely overlooking Johannesbug and it is not far from the trendy area of Melville, it is a bit lacking in any feelgood welcoming factor. I and a few colleagues stayed for a few days and we never once saw the owners which, for a small hotel with six rooms is a bit odd as you might expect the owner to be interested in the guests. I had one of the rooms with no view apart from the outbuildings at the side which was also disappointing and none of the rooms had anything like a soap dish to put things in in the bathroom.
We had the impression that the hotel possibly specialises in dinner parties and receptions but the air of grandeur seems a bit superficial. the piped classical music palying all the time in the restaurant and lounge gets downright irritating after a while too. The internet connection via wifi was so slow as to be unuseable if that matters to you.
