First my rant - this is primarily a business hotel in one of the smartest suburbs of Johannesburg but the wifi connection is positively third world. In the public areas the connection is okay, but from the rooms - where let's face it you'd rather work than in a bar - it's so erratic that on most occasions I just give up. It's deeply frustrating and is the reason I would not stay here again. When you complain at reception (where they always look at you as if you're about to accuse them of something) they say they'll talk to the provider who will contact you. And that's the last you hear of it. A shame, as the hotel is comfortable and most of the staff are charming. It's quiet with a relatively new free shuttle service that will take you to happening places if you need to see some life. The restaurant is "faine daining" and only let down by the sad little dish of damp veg that accompanies every dish and never varies. You long for spinach...yes you do! Rooms are well equipped and beautifully serviced. The phones and phone system ara almost as backward as the wi-fi as you can't leave voice messages and the operator usually waits 24 hours before passing on a phone message. Come on Quatermain...you're so close to being a great place to stay!
