I unfortunately only spent one night but will definitely be recommending the Hamilton to everyone staying in Johannesburg the rooms are big and tastefully decorated. The bed and linen were 5 stars and the staff were great.

I travel to Jbg frequently for business and I can honestly say that staying at The Hamilton is one of my favourite places to stay.

Many a time we take for granted simple things like food, lavatories, wifi, clothes and very commonly, the VERY ROOF over our heads. When in need of a particular space, what we tend to forget that it is the people that accommodate you or whom you find yourself living amongst (first and foremost) that make that stay comfortable, then comes...

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...

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.
