“So good to relax and great for business”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

We only stayed here for one night but feel in love with all the finer details. Complimentary mini bar (with enough). Complimentary Wi-Fi access. The small fruit bowl when we arrived with the sound of music through the room. Details are everything and it was great. The biscuits and turned down sheets, to morning paper and a delicious breakfast. The rooms are large and extremely comfortable with a separate lounge area. Recommend the accommodation to anyone from travellers to business people.

My wife and I have not stayed at the hotel but we have enjoyed both breakfast and dinner on several occasions in small and larger parties. We have always enjoyed the innovative menu, the attention to detail and friendly service.

In pleasant weather a breakfast on the pool deck is delightful and you have the option of the elegant dining room when eating outdoors is less attractive.

Somehow if there is a 'family occasion' to be celebrated, Ten Bompas always seems to spring to mind first.

Dear Frank and Jenny, thank you so much for taking the time to post your comments on Ten Bompas on Tripadvisor. We are delighted that you have enjoyed your stays and your meals at Ten Bompas. I would like to let you know that there are some changes afoot. We are changing the interior of the hotel restaurant and it should open mid June serving French inspired cuisine. At the same time we are busy developing 8 Bompas and will open two new conference rooms and a lounge and terrace overlooking the hotel's vegetable gardens. We look forward to welcoming you back to Ten Bompas and to our new restaurant. Warmest regards Peter and the Ten Bompas Team.

First I must mention that I have been visiting Ten Bompas on and off for 10 years. And there has been a steady decline in the experience the last few years. The service today has been lacking, it was like it was our waitress' first day and that she has never waitered before. The breakfast was a combination of partially cooked mushroom, old looking potatoes and messy poached eggs. Asked for Dan the manager twice, still waiting... Could not in good conscience recommend Ten Bompas to anyone. I still struggle to understand that this kind of experience is acceptable in the current world economic situation.

Dear Alwyn

Thank you for posting your feedback on your recent experience at Ten Bompas. I am sorry that you were disappointed with the breakfast. We prefer not to overcook fresh produce and we poach our eggs in a pot of boiling water with the result that they are not perfectly shaped. Nevertheless as soon as the waitress was told that the food was not to your liking she should have offered a replacement or taken the meal off the bill. This is a good lesson for us all and we have had a meeting with our serving staff this morning empowering them to do just that. I understand that our General Manager did ask for your telephone number - as he was out when you table concluded their breakfast meeting. Of course he should have attended to the complaint when he first became aware of it. My apologies for your disappointment but my thanks for the lessons we have learnt from this. If you do decide to return to Ten Bompas for another breakfast, please let me or Danie know as we would be delighted to offer it to you with our compliments. Warmest regards, Peter Aucamp

We often stay over in Johannesburg en route to other South African destinations. We stayed at Ten Bompas for the first time this year on two separate nights because the hotel we normally use was booked. This might prove to be our first choice in future, and we would definitely recommend it. The rooms/suites are very spacious and well laid out, with every amenity including coffee machines. We were able to add an extra bed so our three children could share one room, and there was still plenty of space. There are ipod docks in each room and good wifi signal. There were also lots of lovely extra touches which made the stay special: complimentary mini bar and spirits, with delicious hot snacks provided each evening. Meals are generally delicious: the inclusive breakfast had lots of choice and the chef was especially helpful in adapting choices for our daughter. Dinner was also great, in particular the banoffee pie which we rated the best ever. The staff were friendly and helpful and made our stay very enjoyable, even though we were there for just the one night each time. The mood was calm and peaceful, even in the centre of the city, and we will definitely use Ten Bompas on future trips.

Dear Ismelda

We are delighted that you and your family enjoyed your recent visit to Ten Bompas Hotel. Thank you for providing such detailed feedback on your stay and it is gratifying to see that you enjoyed the meals in the hotel's restaurant. We started our own vegetable garden in the beginning of 2012 and hope to make produce sourced from the hotel's gardens more of a feature in our restaurant. Although we always served coffee on a complimentary basis we thought it a good idea to also introduce Nespresso machines into the suites for guests who preferred to make their own. It is good to see that you liked this feature. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again to Ten Bompas! Warmest regards, Peter Aucamp

We stayed here for two glorious nights at the end of our Southern African tour. From the moment we walked into the front doors we were made to feel so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff took a real interest in what we wanted and needed without being noisy and intrusive.
The room or rather suite - was beautiful. The bed after long busy days were just what the doctor ordered. Pillows can always be an issue when travelling - but not here. We had friends over for dinner one evening and the food was really good. We felt safe and secure in a city that does not always feel that way. We will come again and hopefully bring friends with us next time.

A birthday weekend to cherish...
The staff at 10 Bompas helped my husband to give me a fabulous treat. The open mini bar and spacious room also added to the stay. Weather was lovely so we really enjoyed the garden.
