Stayed here for just over a week in November. The double bedroom was fine, with a reasonably comfy bed. The room had international as well as SA power outlets. Some of the bedrooms had fridges, however the only power points near a mirror were behind the fridge. So you could either have warm drinks and easy access when doing hair,...

I arrived at the hotel and was checked in by staff who I can only assume are new to the job. Although the hotel is part of the Marriott group, it is by no means a Marriott standard hotel. The hotel is located in the West Rand area of Johannesburg and is within a business park. As with all hotels...

We arrived early after our flight from the UK and were given a room straight away without any fuss, apart from my credit card having been stopped. Help was forthcoming when needed to log on to the internet and all in all this is an average priced hotel offering an average no frills service. There is an American themed diner...
