I was pleasantly surprised by a business stay at this small hotel located a couple of kilometers (walking distance, but taxis are extremely cheap) to Nelson Mandela Square. Rooms are nicely maintained, cozy and my two main items, a great shiwer and a comofy bed, are guaranteed. Although it is near a main highway intersection noise does not penetrate the...

Very nice rooms, friendly staff and good place for business travelers to stay. Central and close to everything as well as easy to get in and out of traffic from the lodge. I did not eat at the lodge, as I checked out too early.

If you like simplicity this delivers ! Close to Sandton center and the M1, it offers clean quiet rooms that are adequate . It never tries to pretend to be a luxury hotel. Great breakfasts that can eaten in the garden next to the pool The car park can get very full as the place is a popular choice for...

For years this is my favourite stop-over for business in Sandton. Always good value for money for a bed and clean room. The breakfast is nice and will keep you through a business day.

Did not like it! The service staff are hardly ever at reception. There is nobody to help you with the bags up and down the stairs. Tried calling the reception a few times during the day.
