The hotel with the welcoming apple! Rooms are adequate without being outstanding. The hotel is close to the business areas and would probably be ideal for those going to the Wanderers cricket. Nothing great but then also no problems. It's a type of place to stay in if business meetings are to be held close by.

I stayed at this hotel in Johannesburg while visiting a conference. It was chosen primarily because of proximity to the conference facilities. It met my needs and when an issue was identified it was resolved swiftly and to satisfaction. Good moderately priced convention hotel.

We booked in for a night after deciding to have dinner with friends at a local mexican restaurant up the road. The grounds are lovely - great views across bowling greens, and Wanderers in the distance. The staff were courteous and friendly. We enjoyed some drinks at the bar before heading off to dinner: a nice selection of local wines... More

I brought this to the receptionist's attention and she apologized and have me another room. Mistakes do happen but it's the way they are handled that makes a difference. It was had handled professionally and I'm happy.... More

Rooms were on the small side but the space was utilized very well; good assortment of amenities and fast enough internet connection (though one frequently has to re-enter one's name and room number -- only mildly annoying). Most of the staff were pleasant though one woman at the front desk never smiled once after several interactions with her (no unreasonable... More

I can't write too much about this hotel as we arrived 7pm from the airport and departed on a tour at 8am the following morning. So unfortunately no time to take a dip in the lovely swimming pool.

Love the friendly staff. Just gives it a bit of a personal feeling. Rooms are comfortable and have everything you need. It's clean and well-kept. Breakfast is an oppurtunity to spoil yourself . Some of the rooms have a wonderful view on the surrounding gardens.
