Was put in this hotel by firm I was visiting. They had wanted to put me in the Protea, Midrand but when that was not available they put me in this hotel instead.
The first room they put me in the safe did not work. I complained and they moved me to another room without any fuss. Unfortunately I had already unpacked before I found out the safe did not work so lost quite a lot of time.
Downsides - no Gym.
Upsides - close to the Mall. The food in the restaurant was of a good standard.
After the time lost moving room I had no choice but to eat in the hotel restaurant first night. I need not have worried - the food was of a good standard and a reasonable selection.
Enjoyed a drink at the bar and got chatting to another businessman there on his own.
Biggest downside was the traffic to Midrand. To be honest personally I would have preferred a cheaper guesthouse and to have been closer to work.
