Just stayed one night at this resort. My flight arrived late at night from Amsterdam at 930pm, so the Gautrain was closed.The taxi using the meter came out to 477 ZAR, which I felt was quite steep. The concierge who greeted me was extremely nice and helpful, and so was the front desk staff. The hotel bar closed at midnight, so I was going to walk to a bar close by the hotel, but the same concierge didn't recommend walking for safety reasons and instead drove me there. He gave me his card to call him when I was done so he could pick me up.
I found the bed extremely comfortable, a little on the hard side which I like, with ample pillows. The big negative about the room was that it didn't come with an iron, but I believe I could have ordered one from the front desk. There was a separate shower and tub, and everything was clean. The shower was stocked with shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, and lotion. The room had two small bottles of water which were complimentary, one still, the other tonic.
My rate came with breakfast, and as I am an eggs and potatoes type of guy, I thought both were rather lacking. The eggs were runny and the potatoes were bone dry and inedible. I cannot comment on the other items, but there seemed to be plenty of cold and cooked meats, with chicken, beef, and pork sausages all available.
Checkout was a breeze, and there was plenty of help downstairs to help you call or taxi, or give you a ride to Sandton city center or the Gautrain. If I ever wanted to come back to Joburg/South Africa again, I would stay here.
