We used this hotel as a base when visiting several safari camps. This property is to say the least, fantastic! A 5 star rating is severly underrated for this place. Rooms were spacious, beautifully appointed with African tribal artifacts, and had a complimentary bar. The restaurant food was fantastic, and room service food was restaurant quality. The extras such as, spa, wines, and food were very fairly priced for the wonderful quality. The property is relatively close to the new financial center, but a ways away from the airport. Really not convenient for a one night stay between flights. The staff was top drawer and there must have been 2 staff assigned to each room. It was a very friendly atmosphere through out the entire complex. Going to Joburg for more than a night, then this is the place. Highly recommend!
