We had a wonderful but short one night stay en route to our safari in Sabi Sands. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, the property is beautiful, our room was well appointed, and the restaurant was excellent. Highly recommend, we wish we could have stayed longer.

We spent three nights here prior to leaving on safari. Physically the environment is gorgeous with opulence and grace combined. The common rooms are beautifully completed and very inviting. The room we had was lovely with a view to the pool and a wonderfully unique outdoor claw bathtub that we enjoyed. Every night the bed was turned down, slippers were left comfortably by the bed, there was a small night cap along with a sweet. What a well pampered feeling we had every night.
The staff were above and beyond professional and friendly. They took care of every desire and did it with grace and a smile. The food was outstanding, including the breakfast that was prepared every morning.
This is definitely a must stay place when in Johannesburg. You should all be very proud of your establishment and your staff.

Spent 5 nights on this hotel and all of them were amazing. Since the arriving till leaving there to take the flight to an another area. The STAFF are totally friend, they help you with everything in all minimum details. The food is fresh and well prepared.
The room, I stayed in the number 5, is unique. It has lounge music to put you in a calm vibe, clean and has a jacuzzi to your own.

Never spent so great in a hotel before like The Residence in South Africa. I had a private tour with one of his guide tour and it was an unique and incredible experience. I will go back to Africa soon and there is no doubts I will have the obligation to stay at least 2 night again at The Residence. Fantastic!

I was at the Residence with a party of 12 and we had such an awesome time, we didn't want to leave! One of the first things that struck me about the Residence is that though it is opulent, it is still welcoming and cozy. The rooms were gorgeous- each one had a distinct boast-worthy feature that really gave that paradise feeling. The food was great- in addition to regular meals we had a formal dinner which was excellently executed and we had no complaints whatsoever. I appreciated the turndown service which was complete with a nightcap for sweet dreams. Excellent staff, great food and beautiful hotel. Highly recommended.

We stayed 3 nights at The Residence with friends who were visiting Johannesburg for the first time. This is the best hotel we've every stayed in. It is a beautifully decorated facility. We stayed in unit 14 which was nothing short of amazing. The staff is very friendly and professional. Service was consistenly high quality as was the food. It was so nice to return from an evening out to a room where the bed has been turned down, slippers placed at the bedside, a night cap with sweets on display by the bed, hot water bottles warming the bed, soft music playing. For you honeymooners or those of us just looking to be pampered, this is the place to go.

To be met at the airport with a welcoming smile, a cool drink and and air-conditioned ride to our accommodation is the best way to finish 20 hours of travel from Australia. From the moment we entered the lobby till the day we left, nothing was too much trouble for the staff, with any request completed with a great smile. How nice it is to have those little extra items taken care of, the welcoming drinks and bottle of bubbles in the ice bucket, the complimentary afternoon slice of cake delivered to the room, the bar fridge with free soft drinks & to finish the evening with a glass of Amarula. Breakfast was a delight in its self. If the rest of our Sth African holiday ticks the boxes like our first two days we are in for a memorable holiday

Room tip: Room 5, quiet, outdoor shower, lovely view over courtyard garden.
