The Best Hotel and more of a Holiday Resort in way in Town, it caters for every1, Politicians, Individuals, Couple, Friends and Family, it is a very friendly welcumin place with its staff who r always welcoming and its a great place if one is staying over with a child/kids.

I have been there wit friends, with business partners, on Social and Business Events, I've also been there with my son and I can tell U now dat its de best Hotel dat I've ever been to, it is so Stylish, very Clean, so much Tranquility, Safe and Beautiful Place... and I rate it the Best Hotel ever compare to other Hotels/Guests House I've been to arnd Jhb and they are Way Far than what I've experienced in The Lakes Hotel!!!

My wife & I needed a hotel room in Benoni for Saturday night.
Having passed this hotel on the highway many times, and seen its lovely setting, we decided to try it.

It was a typical plastic, people processing palace. Very soulless.

Things needed for its '3 star rating' were there, but only just.

The flat screen TV was there, but so badly adjusted that it was unwatchable.

The bathroom with separate shower was there, but the shower door handles were broken, there was nowhere in the shower enclosure, such as a soap dish, to put the soap or shampoo.

The in room, tea and coffee making kit was there, but only powdered milk.

The only bedside light, had a power cord that was too short to reach any power point!!! So I assume that it was for purely decorative purpose. The lighting in general was very dim and inadequate.

Our room, 115, overlooked the pool area and lacked privacy and needed the blinds closed to achieve this during daylight hours.

We checked in after dark and the blinds were all ready down so we didn't realise this until morning.

This feature was further aggravated by the very poor lighting.

As a said, the place was run to meet the 3 star standards, not for the benefit of the customers.

Room Tip: Room facing away from the pool, might have privacy.

The location is superb, right next to a lake. The scenery is just CALM!
The meeting rooms are not well kept though and a lot needs to go into keeping them clean and comfortable.
The rooms are spacious and well designed but the heaters are erratic so during the cold season you could freeze in there!
No Wifi in the rooms and the internet charges are so high! Room phones are not well maintained, 3 of us had faulty room phones!
The food is good though.

Room Tip: If you want Wifi get the rooms closest to the reception :) If you want scenery, get the rooms facing the lake! :)
