“Holiday Inn Sandton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

I 'm a regular guest of this hotel and consider it as 'my home away from home' Staff is very friendly and service is just very good. I have stayed in so called more premium hotels in Joburg/Sandton but definitively is my favorite by far. It's also very well located near the Mandela square and just 15 min. by Gautrain to O.R Tambo

Good Service and value, provided you book in advance and get a good rate. The rate usually includes breakfast which is good. Rooms are spacious and well equipped with most amenities one would need. Convenient location and close proximity to sandton city

Room Tip: High floor room as I always recommend

The service was good and i enjoyed the VIP status because of my award points. Felt like a princess, the staff were so friendly and helpful. Its a good place to stay if you want to feel secure and relaxed.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms away from the on-going construction next door.

We found the Concierge and and the people at the reception very polite, helpful and efficient. The rooms were as you'd expect. The service in the restaurant/coffee bar the first night was slack, but the meals were fine, but this was compensated for by the excellent service at breakfast. It's in a safe location and close to the best steak restaurant I'bve ebver exper4ienced, The Bull Run.

Always a pleasure to come here in sandton. The hotel is walking distance from the nice restaurants and shopping malls in Sandton. They also have a very good parking underneath the hotel. But most importantly is the friendliness of the entire staff. Always smiling and willing to help :) I love it

A convenient hotel with some of the most slow-paced staff on earth. Apparently nice people with almost inexistent customer care focus. Good location, good offer for day trips and amusement options. Transfer services not cheap at all, but drivers are efficient. Polite staff but truly, incredibly slow. In the executive lounge we could see one of the waiting staff members just wiping used glasses and placing them with the ready-to-be-used ones. Needless to say we never visited this lounge again. Service and working procedures desperately need supervision and improvement.

Dear Guest.


Thank you for taking time to do a review on our hotel on your most recent stay with us. Your comments are highly appreciated.

I am very disappointed to read that we fell short on great service due to the inefficiency of some of the staff. It must have been very frustrating. Please accept my humble apologies for this lack of customer care. I have shared your feedback with the team and we are confident that the necessary adjustments have been made in order for this not to happen again. Please accept my sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Thank you for bring this to my attention as this is the only way we can make sure that you get the hotel experience you deserve. I do however hope that you will afford us another opportunity of hosting you in true Holiday Inn style when you next visit.


Kind Regards
RODNEY BULL

stayed here at nights on way to Kruger and back from Kruger. facility is excellent and staff were very helpful. the breakfast buffet is very good. Well located. Felt safe. Mandela square and shopping is quite close by.

dont plan to sleep late as there is heavy duty construction going on right behind the hotel.

The first room had a shower which was immovable and i have to be pasted on the wall to get a decent shower.

Definitely on the pricier side and looks they are attracting business travellers

Room Tip: Please ask to be put in a room twoards the front side so you dont have to SEE the heavy constuction...

Dear "Rob K"

Thank you for providing us with feedback on your most recent stay with us, while we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the ideal location of our hotel, the service of the friendly staff and the breakfast buffet, it is equally disappointing to read that you were not able to enjoy your sleep due the civil works taking place next door to the hotel and also the immovable shower in your bathroom, please accept my humble apologies for any inconvenience caused by these two occurrences.

whilst we have failed to entirely meet all your expectations on this occasion, I do hope you will give us another opportunity to host you at the Holiday Inn Sandton.
