“100% Recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2009

Well I can only say that this is without doubt the most welcoming and friendly hotel in Africa. You arrive in front of 2 huge gates (very good security) which magnificantly open to a beautifully lit lodge, wich a helipad in the huge parking lot, not to mention the massive heated pool with gas lamps for the heat and light! This made my stay twice as good! All the detached rooms produced a very warm image of comfort for me. Highly recommended!!

Never have I come across a hotel so warm, so accomodating and yet so professional in my entire life. As the large Iron gates open of Sandton Town and Country Hotel (very secure and safe)m you are greeted by lush greenery and a helipad! Then laid out a little African styled cottages which are spread across the large property and a pool waiting for you to jump in!
The rooms are actually cottages, with a hurge bedroom and study area in it and large tub to fit in 3! Lush and very premium.
Lots of light and very very cosy! Loved it!
The hotel has its own little bar and restaurant called Mandolin (named after the owner's father's love for the musical instrument), many madolin pictures adorn the walls and the meals... taste it to believe it, the fine young man who runs it - Gulio (who is now also a dear friend) is an excellent chef and whips up miracles and delights your senses.
Being so lush and green, you feel like you are in lap of luxury at the same time being with nature, with exotic birds streching their wings close to you as you sip the warm latte.
The service is prompt and excellent and very homely, I had people telling me "dont skip your breakfast my darling, you have a long way ahead of you" remined me of my mother!!! Will I go back!!! Goes without saying... to this best hotel on the planet... always!!!
