I've stayed here a few times before on business and its location is good for Sandton/Rivonia and Johannesburg's Northern Suburbs. What makes this a gem is the staff. From the reception to bar/pool service, restaurant and housekeeping, everyone is always smiling and keen to assist/serve. What is letting the hotel down is the preventative maintenance. Our room 119 was perfectly...

Great value for money, smooth check in and check out as well as friendly and helpful staff. Would really consider staying here again as it was actually better than expected. Works for a business traveller, a family or a couple. Pleasant stay overall in a good location.

A quaint hotel with rooms situated around a tranquil pool - a haven within the hustle and bustle of Morningside. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, great restaurant and very friendly, helpful staff. Definitely worth a repeat visit.

This was a good find in Johannesburg. Very relaxed, with friendly staff eager to assist in any way. Highly recommended for any business trip to the city. I will most certainly make use of the hotel again.

2nd stay in this hotel. Clean, quiet and professional. Staff is very friendly. Good breakfast and not a mad rush as so often happens in these establishments. Reasonably priced for what you get. Will use it again.
