“Home away from home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

This is my home away from home. The facilities are excellent and let you feel as if you are at home. Excellent restaurant and breakfast on the premises. Great for business people. You feel quite safe in the hotel. Room service also great. I have stayed here for more than five years on a regular basis. Never been disappointed. Ask for the new section.

An absolutely awesome room to be in. Very spacious & luxury deluxe. Clean & great space. The room I had comes with a small entrance lounge & great work station. The bathroom is stunning with lots of space. Both separate shower & bath tub. Really a great romantic getaway place as well.

Room Tip: Room 303, if I remember correctly.

We stayed the night on the way to and from Durban over the Christmas holiday. We had a great experience and want to go back another time to stay longer! Very cute hotel, good service, the food at the included breakfast was excellent, and the bar served a good cocktail. Nice neighborhood and convenient to the highway.

The room was very comfortable with good & clean bathrooms. I only had breakfast at the hotel and it was good! There is a wide selection and everything is fresh. The staff are the best - they are very friendly and extremely helpful! From the front desk to the barman - was truly a great stay. Thanks to all the staff & management.

First of all, kudos to management for a well-trained and well-taken care staff, the smiles you get are not plastered on their faces, they are genuinely happy to see you and to serve you. Secondly the ambience, the spaces, the food, the rooms are really well maintained and just the right size. I have been booked here for 10 days and you know if you are away that long the food is boring, I enjoyed every day because of the variety and the options and the can-do attitude, there is never a time when there is something that the can't or won't do to make your day great. It's a really refreshing and positive and there is an energy of a relaxed atmosphere which is not sloppy but pleasant. I really enjoyed this hotel, just to qualify this is a bigger hotel than their sister hotel, Falstaff, so you will likely have a longer walk to your hotel room, but the journey and the exercise option that goes with it are good for you, so enjoy it. Highly recommended!!

We have stayed at this hotel on quite afew occasions over the past 6 years. The staff are always very pleasant, helpful and make you feel very welcome. My husband first started staying here when on business and always enjoyed his stay, now when ever we are in South Africa we try to have a couple of nights stay.

Room Tip: We always ask for a room in the newer section if possible, just a little quieter.

This is an excellent boutique hotel in Sandton. Our room was a good size, very clean and comfortable overlooking the pool. The service was excellent and the breakfast very good. People at the front desk were very helpful. I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
