From a wonderful greeting on arrival, to the fantastic host (Emanuel Mcotheli) in The View restaurant, to the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in - this hotel is just amazing. The views from the hotel are lovely. We found the food and service better in The View, as opposed to Flame - but Flame is still very good.... More

This is a spectacular sprawling complex set on the side of a hill over looking Joburg. It really has the Italian coastal town look. This was a unique first visit to the Four Seasons as I ended up in three different rooms over the course of 7 days. First night I had a late check with an early morning flight... More

The rate per night is an indicator of what one can expect at time of checking in at an establishment. And, yes, indeed, the Westcliff is a nice place, great rooms, good linen, luxurious bathroom, coffee machine even a stunning little electric kettle, extremely expensive contents (if paying in ZAR) in the bar fridge and snack drawer. Therefore all of... More

The Hotel layout on the slope of a hill is quite interesting with nice gardens and flours. The service is first class everywhere; professional and friendly (reception, restaurants, housekeeping, room service). Apart from the Zoo, there is not much to see around the hotel within safe walking distance.

This is a beautiful hotel in a very nice area of Johannesburg. The staff made the stay excellent. They are friendly, very well trained but never intrusive. Rooms are big and beautifully appointed. The bathroom is very big with very nice amenities. Beautiful views from the balcony. Wifi is free and very strong everywhere. Breakfast on the terrace was good... More

July 17- Had a really long day.Eventually got to Westcliffe hotel at around 20hoo,exhausted. Firstly parked my car in front of reception and was rudely told to move it. Tried to explain to concierge that I would move it as soon as I have checked in,which was already booked online and confirmed. Instead of directing me or helping me park... More

Great property and service all around. Best place to stay in Johannesburg by far. We had them give us a tour of the city and it was very informative and comfortable. We are at the Deli and Flames and enjoyed all of our meals. The rooms were very nice and clean. We had them bring us to and from the... More

perched on a hill overlooking the joburg zoo, you feel like you are on safari-in-the-city. the view from the upper restauarant/bar is literally to die for. restaurants are excellent. and security is top notch , this is joburg and you don't really want people wandering in from the street, so the security staff are top notch 24 hours a day.

Very good hotel, strong Four Seasons service, huge bathroom, good restaurants although I found Flames to be better value (evening) than View for breakfast. The staff at check in/out differentiated themselves in comparison to other places I stayed in Africa as they were more organized, timely, and professional. The car service through the hotel was very helpful.

Took my mom here for Afternoon tea and we were not disappointed. They have changed the format of their tea so instead of bringing you a tea stand with everything on the menu, they now make you choose either 6 or 8 items that you actually want and bring this to you. The tea also comes with a glass of... More
