Very clean beautiful decor. I love the smell in the room. love the victorian bath. The sherry was just what I needed after a four hour travel and exhausting day. Receptionist was very professional, friendly and helpful. Was a grate stay. Beautiful garden with big trees. Very quiet area. The security guard was friendly and helpful.

We booked a standard room at The Wesley for 3 nights and according to the website promised a beautiful room. When we arrived the venue is beautiful, but was incredibly disappointed with the reality of the room we were given! The room was tiny, had a shabby feel and only had a tiny bath in a separate bathroom (see photos...

We were disappointed when we got there. The name is hidden behind the shrubs and as it was dark and raining we struggle to find the place. The security guard opened the gate but did not come out to give us directions as where to go. I had to phone reception and the lady told me to go back to...

Fabulous grounds, beautifully kept, wonderful caring generous staff, great rooms and quaint.... nice breakfasts, good meeting space, comfy beds and 1 star internet that is slow slow slow... you just can't do that in the modern world. What a shame... But.. if thats not important for you then it's a wonderful place.

We only stayed one night but would recommend onwards for anyone staying in Joburg looking for somewhere well located, safe and with...

Staff is super, and the place is magic. Just loved it. Only problem is that the standard rooms don't have a shower. That's a real problem for us. The pool with the fountain was great, and the braai gazebo amazing.

This establishment is very well appointed with luxury finishes and a great breakfast served by lovely staff. The biggest disappointment for me was that there is no street number or any reference to "The Wesley" on the property. I spent half an hour traversing the area as my route finder had told me that I had "arrived at destination" but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Wesley is an upmarket Guesthouse that caters for the more discerning guests. Situated in the heart of Bryanston, Sandton, surrounded by beautiful gardens and a natural bird haven which has been cultivated over decades opposite the Bryanston golf course. As one of the oldest farm houses in Bryanston, the property is situated on the highest point in the area and has been occupied by Multinational CEOs and Heads of States. The Wesley is conveniently near many popular venues, namely 10 minutes away from Sandton, Fourways, Cresta, Rosebank, Monte Casino, the highway and the Gautrain Set in an idyllic surrounding, there are few experiences that can rival sipping sundowners on the deck, listening to the gurgling of the waterfalls, basking amongst the unique bird life, and watching the setting of the magnificent South African sun! Exclusivity and privacy is the key to the service offering and each room is designed with this in mind. The entire area is covered by Cameras, electric fencing and electric beams with 24 hour guards and is truly a secure environment where you can feel at home without any worries. With a backup generator in case of power failure.The rooms vary in size from 45 to 100 square metres boasting antiques in all the rooms dating between 100 and 250 years old. The focus and design is a fusion between French Provencal with touches of ancient colonial Asia. Each of the 11 rooms has a sense of conformity with the detail presenting total individualism. The majority of the decor has been specifically imported and guests can experience treats such as slumbering on an 18th Century bed. Without giving away all the treasures to be found in the common areas, you will definitely notice the 250 year old feature door when exploring the property. There is a Cigar bar and an African Bar and a beautiful swimming pool with waterfalls and Palm trees rivaling Sun City. If you are looking for the best bouquet of offerings from personal to professional and modern to old school, The Wesley will not disappoint both private and business traveller alike. The Wesley has become 'ONE HOT TICKET' getting a full write up in the Top Billing 2011 Issue ... more   less
