Reviewed August 10, 2010

rooms are fairly clean and spacious.
bathrooms were not cleaned during our stay - looked as though it was just tidied up.
shower curtain was dirty.
bathrooms not in very good condition.
staff at breakfast are too much in a hurry to clean up - even if it meant them wanting to take away your plate while you were still eating.
the coffee making machines couldnt keep up to the crowds. on both days we had to queue up for making drinks (which is not a problem), but after making a few drinks, the machine requires about 5 minutes to heat up, leaving everyone standing & waiting.
both mornings, there werent enough croissants for the guests.
on the 2nd morning, the mugs had a terrible (egg-like) smell, as well as the plates.

First room was so impersonal that I couldn't help but ask for another one which was somewhat better. Forgot my toothpaste and it took 3 attempts before this was arranged. Positive is the quality of the bed and the willingness (not competence) of the staff to assist. Also the breakfast buffet was descent. If you are spending R 1000,- a night I would suggest looking for a descent B&B or another hotel.

We arrived late on a Friday night and attempted to checkin which took over 2 hours of standing in the lobby trying to get a straight answer from the receptionist/duty manager. Even though we had confirmation of our 2 rooms the hotel stated they had overbooked and had no availability. After over 2 hours they provided 2 rooms with no apologies.
The keys constantly failed in the doors, reception staff we unattentive, hotel shuttle bus tried to charge us 500RND for a 10 min trip!
Couldn't get out of the place fast enough!

Firstly, the rate I paid was excellent, 350.00 per night which is very cheap. On arriving at the hotel I was pleasantly surprised as the interior is quite comforting and modern.
The staff were also very helpful as I arrived very early yet received a room immediately.
The rooms were average and the bathroom okay. I didn't like the shower in the bath.
I recomend this hotel for persons attending function etc at the university of witwatersrand or university of johannesburg.
I also disliked the pool, it was cold (probably due to all the surrounding trees) and there isnt much space to lounge.
Regarding Dining, the restaurant downstairs (room service comes from there too) isn't anything to shout about!

I recently stayed here while visiting someone at the Milpark Hospital.
The hotel is convenient for visitors to Wits University and Milpark Hospital.

It is clean and cost effective. Although very courteous, the reception staff is quite slow and waiting to be attended to can be quite chaotic as there are no organized lines.

The MacRibs restaurant offers decent meals particularly for meat eaters. I would recommend the menu items over the buffet (which was quite salty).
Room service is a little slow, so you are better going down to the restaurant and taking your order to go if you want to eat in your room.

My big criticism is that the taxis have no meters so the same trip could cost you significantly different amounts based on how the taxi driver assesses you!
