A nice play to stay in Johannesburg: clean, friendly, and near the city center (30 min taxi). If you like to move around the city during the day, there are better quarter to go but you need to consider to pay more. If you like to move in general, there is a fitness center which provides you with what you... More

Ancient look maintained with modern interior. Elevator still has old features which is pretty cool. Staff are nice and friendly...cool shuttle service to sandton city mall and superb restaurant service. Room service was on point. Wifi service needs a little upgrade. That been said, good job sunnyside!!!

I attended a 2 day meeting in this beautiful setting. The hotel and its growth and extensions since 1896 is telling but flawlessly integrated on a sprawling piece of prime real estate in a peaceful setting - the very large open car park is testimony to just how large this hotel is. Wonderful lunch served!

Spent 2 weeks here. Staff all very pleasant and friendly. Rooms are spacious but a bit dated...plumbing rather random. Wireless is poor and unreliable. Gym is very limited and machines old and stuffed. Breakfast good but can be crowded when tour parties are there. Dinner is buffet...good but a bit expensive compared to nearby restaurants. Overall OK, but could be... More

The hotel is lovely but the rooms are in serious need of an upgrade!! The towels were terribly thin and frayed and need to be replaced...even the bed linen was old and looked like it had had its days. Staff however were extremely helpful and tried their best to assist.

Beautiful hotel but room facilities could use an upgrade and some maintenance. Service is generally good. Disappointingly there were a number of dishes on the menu in the restaurant that were not available.
