Hotel near Wanderers for Twenty20.

Hi all. In town with a mate for the Twenty20 final in sept. Only there for one night.

CAn anyone suggest a nice hotel (or two), about R1000 per night which is near by? WAs considering staying in Sandton but it looks a little far considering we fly in then fly out the next day.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, but i was hoping for something more specific than a listing for the entire country....

I thought perhaps a local could assist with geographic advice.

There is a Protea Hotel within walking distance of Wanderers. Not sure what availability/prices would be, but worth checking out.

Also, Sandton is only 10 minutes by car. Plenty of hotels there.

Other areas within about 10 minutes of the stadium (by car) would be Rosebank or Melrose Arch.

The Protea Hotel, Wanderers is the closest hotel to the stadium and someone else has given you the website address.

Sandton is just up the road - about three or four kms north of the stadium, so it's not that far. There are various Southern Sun hotels there - www.southernsun.co.za - otherwise as the other post said, there is also the area of Melrose Arch which is slightly south of the Wanderers Stadium, again a couple of kms south.

A hotel which I think has had decent reviews in the Melrose Arch area is The Peech Hotel. www.thepeech.co.za

Here's another option: http://www.premiereclasse.co.za/ - very close to Wanderers Sports Club.

I stayed there a couple of years ago, expecting it to be nicer than it really is - but it's secure, close to Wanderers, and has kitchen facilities. Get the 2 bedroom suite - for the extra money, it's really worth it.

Hello SSDixieAustralia,

Have a look at this site -

http://www.melroseplace.co.za/

This very comfortable and attractive place is near the Wanderers ground. It is really two large formerly private residences now operated as a single entity guest house. Very nice to come home to after a long day sight-seeing or getting over-excited at the match. They put on a really good meal for those who indicate early enough they are staying in for dinner. They also organise airport transfers for those who want that facility.
