I stayed at the Birchwood twice over the past couple of years, both when a large international conference was hosted there, and my company booked me to the on-site hotel option.

It met my expectations. All was excellent from the service to the rooms. I would love to visit again, this time with my children. The shuttle to the Airport and East Rand Mall was a great idea. Thanks

Very good conference facilities. Staff are friendly and efficient. Rooms are adequate. The facilities and security teams ensured that all requirements were met for the successful delivery of the workshop, even though it was organized at very short notice.

The facilities and service have improved tremendously since my last stay. There was no toilet paper in the bathroom and this took some time to arrive and the curtain netting had a tear in it. Other than this, facilities and service were very good.
