As leisure guests in a predominantly business hotel, we stuck out a little bit in our shorts. But we were treated impeccably all the same.
The hotel is a few steps from the Gautrain (which whisks you to the airport in no time) so is THE place to stay if this sort of convenience is your thing.
We got a 'Business Class' room (602) and we couldn't have wanted for more; lovely bathroom, super-comfy bed with quality linens and a desk etc. to work from. Top marks.
Breakfast in the restaurant just fabulous; attentive service, excellent selection from a large buffet and eggs etc. cooked to order by the smiley chef. All waiting staff very nice and chatty too.
Pool area glorious and a real haven from the madness of the streets below.
Walkover to the shopping mall for loads of restaurants/shops etc.
Top tip for souvenirs is to buy from the craft market just behind Hard Rock Cafe in Mandela Sq. A third of the prices elsewhere!
