Good value hotel, staff very helpful and friendly. Breakfast pretty good, bit of a business traveller feel which is understandable considering the location to Sandton. Not much nearby as you have to take a cab to Mandela square for evening entertainment.

Good hotel convenient to Sandton City. Buses and taxis available to and from the Sandton Gautrain Station. Breakfast acceptable but dinner not good. More of a cafe offering lots of carbs. But many restaurants close at hand. Try Codfather- excellent, ask for Ali to serve you...

Convenient to where I needed to be - basics covered in terms of the room ( desk, wi-fi, nice bathrooom and comfortable room). Knowing the standards I can expect at the hotel chain, I was happy to have been booked there. My main gripe - getting food from the coffee shop in the evening. The 'chef' was clearly overwhelmed and... More

Just bad. Smoking room when I asked for non smoking. Room from another age. The restaurant is located in the lobby. No elevator A shame . This is my first time in South Africa. The people are very nice. That helps not to depress!

We stayed at the hotel on numerous occasions, last visit was just over a week long, due to our son's hospital stay. They did everything possible to accommodate us, even though they were fully booked already. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Rooms are small but always clean. Very good breakfast. The only downside is an absence of an automatic doors,... More

If you have dust allergies then best to take antihistamine tablets. I woke up in the middle of the night covered in bumps - due to allergic reaction. Room service was very expensive with portions that are far too large for one individual. Food was not tasty at all and it would have been better to order mr delivery. I... More

The room was perfect, wide and clean. The service was fine but I just got sometimes little issue with the landline phone. It's was calm and discret; that helped me to learn when preparing my exams without problem. I suggest it to every one looking for calm, discret lodge.

I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly sevice, the very clean and fresh room. Welk appointed room. Good value in Johannesburg and very centrally located. Well done and well managed. Good for business trips. Excellent and super fast service to the room when I ordered still water. I shall visit again.

Understand that it is not the Hilton, but it comes at a good price, is quiet and clean, and the rooms are very livable. The tv and aircon in the room works very well. Nothing wrong here. I find it difficult to understand why this hotel got some very poor reviews. I would stay here again.
