Situated in a leafy enclave of high end Estates in northern Johannesburg with plenty of unobtrusive security. In order to explore the city one would need a car or use the very comfortable chauffeured Mercedes which are available. The hotel staff are exceptional. My wife left her medication on British Airways and the concierge (yeah Denzel!) managed to find a doctor who came to the hotel and find replacement medications, all without leaving the hotel! The hotel itself is nicely furnished with comfortable and cozy sitting areas with views of several pools. The gym is well appointed with new machines. Of interest is that Nelson Mandela stayed here after his release from prison in order to work on his book. The food is actually quite reasonable in price and of high quality and a favorite for locals. The rooms are Spacious, with beautiful linens and large windows. There are two or three bars with a good wine list. Almost forgot,the spa got a good rating from those in the family who got massages. Overall, we were very impressed and would come back were it not at the other end of the world!
