“Lovely stay, homely place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

I had the pleasure of staying at Courtyard Rosebank sometime this this past September. I enjoyed the warmth and care of the staff. The front office staff were very helpful with my inquiries. My room was spacious and clean and its proximity to Rosebank Mall made life even easier. I felt at home away from home. I found it unconventional and not large allowing personalised care. Comparing it to the bigger establishments in Jo'burg, I would stay here anytime I am within the vicinity.

I have stayed at the Rosebank Courtyard frequently over many years it not recently until a month ago. The service is as friendly as ever, but I found the rooms to be rather tired and in need of a revamp. It is now also rather noisy as Oxford road is open and the traffic heavy. In addition, I was woken at 2am by someone very insistently knocking on my door only to have them rush off when I asked who they were. Access to the hotel is relatively easy from the street and I wondered if this was possibly a partner who had been requested! Much as I like the staff and the convenience of the location, I do not think I will be staying there again soon.

This is another return trip to this great hotel in the centre of Rosebank and the welcome and service were excellent. The self catering apartment has everything you need and the buffet breakfast provides a great start to the day - including the famous muffins.

This is a rather unusual hotel, with no internal corridors, but quite typical for the area.

It is in the upmarket Rosebank area, a thirty second, safe walk, from the nearby Rosebank Mall. The shopping centre has loads of really good restaurants and is jointed up to the Hyatt hotel, which is nice for evening drinks.

The shopping centre also has a Woolworths department store which is the equivalent of M & S in Ireland or the UK. There are also a wide range of shops, which are good value, so pack light and buy there!

The hotel itself consists of small blocks of small suits and rooms, your door will be in the open air. Surrounded by nice palm trees and a quiet safe ambience. The hotel is quite good value, considering how safe and secure it is. The rooms are of a very good standard but are a little outdated, but just a little.

I had a one bedroom suite, all rooms have a fully working kitchen with crockery etc. There is a dining table, sitting room and a spacious bedroom with a nice bathroom. Even the singel rooms are very spacious, but given the cost it's wise to go with a suite, for the extra space and comfort. There is also car parking available.

Breakfast is fine, but I tended to walk accross to the mall to get some, cheaper and the dining room is small and the food very plain if you are here for a long stay. There is an outdoor pool too, with free coffee, pastry and juice on reception. And drinks in the evening.

Be warned if you are travelling for business the WIFI in the hotel is virtually non functioning. There are expensive options to buy time, but in my experience it did not work. I could never get online using the hotel network.

Room Tip: Some rooms have steps up to them, others are ground floor level. Others have a long walk from recept...

Stayed for 1 night on a business trip to JHB. Friendly service at check-in, clean room, more spacious than expected, nice little kitchenette. Opposite the road from Rosebank Mall making it easy to get food from a variety of restaurants that also deliver! Enjoyable stay, would do it again.
