The Westford Hotel, Sandton
Ranked #43 of 47 Hotels in Sandton
Reviewed August 18, 2011

stayed in the business suite in the Westford Hotel and Suites.( I think its actually kind of a motel) , the price is very less compared to other hotels in Sandton or Johannesburg, the staff are brilliant! very talkative, I learnt the African SHake Hand!!, Breakfast is nice and has a very big variety. the hotel has a swimming pool(usually unused,not sure why). IF you would like a family room i would reccomend you to get a Deluxe/Standard or Executive room and a Business Suite. SInce you cannot get 2 connected so also make a special request for the connecting room, it will turn out to be more like a family suite/apartment, no lift up to the hotel so not really accessible for the Wheelchair but the staff was helpful in that time too. So overall we enjoyed our stay!!

We booked in for the weekend and we enjoyed our stay. It is 10min away from shopping malls, healthy breakfast is served every morning, there is a pool in site, and they offer a budget rate. I would not hesistate to recommend to my friends and family.

A kind of place that Indians would love. Gives the homely feeling of an inn. However, it can't be classified as grand by any means. A touch on the expensive side.

Westford's location at Sandton is superbly convenient, only 10 min walk from the bustling Mandela Square. The hotel rooms are large, although the layout is quite awkward and one can get lost in the narrow alleys within!

Special mention of Rory, the Scot bartender. So pleasant and always ready for a laugh

The hotel is cheap for it's central location but that is about it. Gives an impression that it is a business hotel and I thought it would be a bit souless but ok - we were only staying a day before and after a trip to Kruger. We decided to cancel the reservation on our return to stay at an airport hotel. Redeeming quality - helpful staff and a large packed breakfast for the road.
