Put up here for one night on business. The rooms were clean, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Wifi is available and unlimited in the rooms - great package. There is a lovely pool and parking for guests is available.

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... More

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. What you get is the same as what you got the last time. Constant quality and service. I can see that the building will have to... More

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. Not once did they answer. Had to physically wall down the very long corridor with at least 80 rooms and up the stairs every... More
