We celebrated a special occasion at the Hotel recently and found the service and quality excellent. The positioning of the hotel - overlooking a green area in Johannesburg - provided a great view during early evening drinks/sundowners. The food was prepared and presented in true Michelin star style. The cleanliness and Covid-19 precautions were really good and the in-dining breakfast provided the opportunity to enjoy an easy morning on the room verandah overlooking the city. All in all - a great stay

The property, staff, food and overall experience was top notch. Day at the spa with brunch at the Flames restaurant turned into booking a stay into one the suites. We enjoyed it so much. This hotel has the most amazing views, the whole ambiance of the hotel is just wonderful, a hotel not to be missed when in Johannesburg.

I was on my way back to the U.S. from Mauritius and had a long layover in Jo'Burg. Who wants to stay at the airport for 6, 10 or 30 hours? FS is the perfect solution for that. You can set up airport transfer, stay at the hotel for whatever amount of time you need and get back to catch your flight. They also have space to work if you need a couple hours or Zoom. Hotel is 40-60 minutes away. While at the hotel, you have access to the restaurants, spa, shower and even a room if you need it. I did not need laundry service but they probably could have done that. The impression I have is that if you contact them with your particulars, they could probably make it happen. The views from the hotel are wonderful and I am told the best in the city.
