I stayed at the AtholPlace for the day, after a long overnight flight from London.
As my tired self got off the plane, I was met after customs by a friendly driver who had been pre-arranged through the hotel. Not only did he drive me safely to and from the airport, but gave me some history of Joburg as we drove through and pointed out the main sites.
I arrived at the hotel and the staff was so friendly and welcoming. I had missed breakfast, however, the chef whipped me up some food anyways.
The room was lovely, with large windows & ceilings, some overlooking the beautiful back lawn. The rooms were also very very spacious.
While I was only there for the day, I wish I would have had longer to enjoy this lovely hotel
