My husband and I spent a fabulous night at 54 On Bath recently.
The night was to be a birthday surprise for Oliver, which I mentioned to Jacques Moolman - the manager.
When we entered our room, there was a bottle of bubbly on ice, a fantastic mini "high tea" including macaroons, and gorgeous cupcakes, and beside this was a spectacular carrot cake for two with "Happy Birthday" written on the plate in chocolate. Be still my beating heart! Joy! This was even a surprise for me!
The re-design of the hotel is a huge success, with classy grey, black and white as the basic pallette. Very comfortable beds, beautiful bed linen, and glorious matresses made sure we slept well.
The staff were outstandingly friendly - every need was taken care of. The branding of the soaps, airsprays, toiletries, laundry bags, shoe bags, newspaper bags, everything is well thought through and beautifully executed.
The breakfast was yummy, with a great menu, catering for all types. Sitting peacefully in the sun with breeze blowing through the new spring leaves of the trees on the terrace up on the balcony is a pleasure - especially when this hotel is in the bustling Rosebank.
It was a wonderful experience all round, thank you Jacques and team - and well done!
