This hotel really is a sanctuary, nice gardens, pools and singing birds. It is hard to believe there is the hustle and bustle of Sandton just outside. Friendly, efficient staff. Great bar. The hotel is always pretty full with guests but because it is spaced out, nobody is on top of anybody, there always seems like there is space.
Being able to use The Bull Run restaurant situated next door for room service is a big bonus.
Rooms in the newer Garden Court part of the hotel are obviously more modern than those at the front of the hotel.
Just one thing, the cleaning staff.... When there is do not disturb sign on the door, particularly when wanting a lie in at the weekend, why do the staff vacuum the hallway scrapping the vacuum or trolley against the door at 7-8am? Do not disturb means more than just not knocking the door.
