The Hamilton in Craighall Park is an excellent conference venue and constantly exceeds any and all expectations. From the up-market and refined entrance through which guests (delegates) pass to the conference room (comfortable, light and airy) to the three-course meal of six-star quality, this venue is beyond excellent. Guests (delegates) can stay over in one of may luxury rooms and... More

Irrespective of the booking charge, all rooms should be fitted with toilet doors. What happens if a guest has visitors and someone goes to the toilet? I strongly suggest that there is urgent need to re-visit and fit toilet doors. If that situation is not addressed then it means only guests who are booking the premium rooms can be recommended...

Three couples stayed here on and off for 5 weeks whilst touring South Africa. The most amazing service from the owner Gail and her staff. Violet, Clifford and Michael are incredible and nothing is a problem. Please let them cook you an evening meal! You wont want to go out again! This truly was a home away from home and... More

This is my favourite place to stay in the world. Violet is the most incredible, warm, friendly and accommodating hostess. The food is excellent, the rooms superb and its small enough to be personalized and tailored to your requirements. The location is convenient in Bryanston, close to all major transport routes while being in a leafy, residential, quiet Neighbourhood.

The Hamilton displays and offers a level of refinement that is remarkable, yet is unpretentious and informal at the same time. A beautifully designed Zen-style boutique hotel that exudes peace and tranquility.

I recently hosted one of my best friends Baby Shower at The Hamilton, and was so pleased by the all round service and hospitality we received. Gail, the owner of the hotel, was so wonderful and helpful and her personal touch and interest in everything just added that little bit extra to their service. Maxwell, the Chef and the team...

Johannesburg's best kept secret: the Hamilton is the best venue in Johannesburg for an intimate business conference. The setting is tranquil and conducive to creativity and the food, refreshments and service is of international standard.
