We were told that originally the hotel was a condominium that failed to thrive. As a hotel, it is anything but a failure. This is one of the very best places we have stayed, not only because of its gorgeous location and its glorious accommodations, grounds and amenities, but because of its staff. Without exception, we were treated with utmost...

We had an absolutely fantastic time spending our New Year at the Westcliff after a week on safari in Botswana and Namibia. The new year's dinner was absolutely delicious and the massages at the spa were divine! There are incredible views from all the rooms and our room was beautiful and neat.

Stayed in Johannesburg for two nights at the start of wonderful visit to South Africa. The hotel is very nice, the rooms were pleasant and the staff were very accommodating and friendly. The location is great, feels suburban but easy to get everywhere. Considering it is quite a new hotel, I thought the rooms looked a bit dated. The restaurant...

I'm generally a big fan of Four Seasons but was disappointed with this visit. The hotel is large, so feels like a new Hilton, i.e. lacks the personal touch. The standard of service is variable, with some excellent staff but also a number that need to be retrained or moved on. I'd stay here again and hope they can continue...

The staff at the reception was warm and friendly at check in, ever ready to help and assist in any request. All the rooms are built on the hill which extend a great view of the city. Need a cart to get to your room or you could take a leisurely walk. Great holiday mood and wished I could stay...

They sure know how to charge you but service doesn't come close to the room rate level. One can wait for a bucket of ice for 4hours! Minibar got never refreshed even after asking for it... Wouldn't stay there again. Too high value for average service.

We stayed one night this property in November 2016 while in Johannesburg for a quick visit. We decided to take advantage of their "brunch and room" rate, as we had eaten brunch at the venue before and remember it fondly. Overall, the hotel experience was very good. Everyone was very helpful. We had a lovely room which is tastefully appointed....

The hotel has 5 star facilities, however their service is extremely poor. During our 3 day visit at this hotel, we felt the hotel did not pay attention to our needs. At the time of check in, we requested for our breakfast to have some vegetarian or vegan options. They were only operating one restaurant flames in the evening (which...
