With close attention to detail and exceptional service, Fairlawns creates an intimate atmosphere where some of the globe’s most vibrant personalities converge. The chic, upscale suites are individually decorated in varying themes ranging from Eastern influence to French provincial, each featuring every desired modern amenity. The hotel also caters to a variety of culinary tastes with an array of elegant dining experiences to choose from. Located in Johannesburg - South Africa’s largest city and gateway to the rest of Africa - Fairlawns is situated just 6 km from central Sandton, and 20 km from the Johannesburg city centre to offer the upmarket traveller a delicate mix of luxury and convenience. Established in 1997, Fairlawns, or “FBH” as it’s come to be affectionately known by Managing Director, Michael Kewley, is a property proud in heritage and character.

We hosted a lunch for my daughter’s civil signing celebration and the Fairlawn’s Staff extraordinarily exceeded our every expectation. They were friendly, efficient, and exemplary of what a 5* experience usually is. The food was particularly brilliant, every single guest absolutely loved their meals with every single offering providing a welcomed burst of flavour and satisfied faces. The pricing was a welcomed surprise as everything was fairly priced and portioned. Our room was upgraded due to the hotel currently being under renovations - another welcomed surprise that put a cherry on top for the experience. We will certainly be returning for the sumptuous oxtail, poke bowl, steak, arancini and and and! Well done to the entire team and we are wishing you great success in your business! Thank you for making my daughter and son’s first day as a Mr&Mrs under unusual Covid-19 circumstances so special!

We arrived at Fairlawns when the covid19 travel ban was announced. While our travel agent scrambled to find flights for us to return home the staff at Fairlawns were exceptionally helpful and supportive. Our plans changed and shifted almost daily for 4 days and they were able to accomodate our unknown departure and made us feel safe and at home. We will certainly return once travel resumes, recommend this Hotel with top ratings!

The hotel layout is very attractive and staff always striving to go the extra - mile. As for food, I was surprised by the fact that there is a Banting (low carb and high fat) regime in place. Well done!
