Fantastic hotel in beautiful settings. Lovely rooms, I stayed in a junior suite which was luxurious. The buggies can take you up the hill to your rooms if you dont want the short walk! There is nothing else immediately around the hotel to visit but there is a pool and spa if you need something else to do apart from...

Ever since the Four Seasons opened in Johannesburg my partner had his mind set on celebrating his 30th birthday there & so it happened. I really enjoyed the "feel" that the hotel offers. It doesn't feel like the usual hotel - One big building with lots of rooms. It felt like a resort. I have nothing bad to say about...

Dear Christoff_Bothma Thank you for taking the time out of your day to review your recent visit to Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff for your partners recent 30th birthday celebrations.

This is the revamped westcliff hotel I don t think it is going to be a Four seasons for long as it is NOT the Four seasons standard. Staff is mostly great the rooms very confortable the restaurant have a stuning view of a park and part of the city but the service is dead slow and food is tastless...

A real disappointment. This hotel has THE most spectacular views over Johannesburg but quality and service just aren't at the global Four Seasons standard.The refurbishment seems to have been skimped on so the rooms are very spartan. We'd specifically booked a room with a balcony which we had but the chairs put out there are small and uncushioned. And although...

I had had very poor experiences at previous visits to this hotel, for drinks and meals - its close to where I live. I decided to return anyway and spend the night, as a treat for my son on his 10th birthday, and I must give them credit for a significant improvement in service. The setting is of course quite...

We recently visited Four Seasons the Westcliff hotel in Johannesburg. What an experience! Outstanding accommodation selection, great service and cuisine to match. Although it is situated in Johannesburg suburbs it is close to the famous Johannesburg Zoo and War Museum for those who fancy either of these attractions. Tours are readily available covering numerous attractions in the Johannesburg area. An...

Excellent location, service, rooms and most of all hospitality! However food not up to top restaurant quality (very mediocre) and therefore not good value for money. Drinks are overpriced too for Johannesburg.

We stayed in a premier room - the room itself was huge - the bathroom even bigger (I loved the rain shower head) but the view was partially occluded - and the main reason to stay on the hillside is for the spectacular views. The room itself was recently renovated - as I assume all the rooms were when the...

Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff in Jo'Burg was fantastic. Good service and good food. The hotel was spread outover a hill straw tion with many small hotel buildings, so it suited definitely not handicap accessible, but with good movement and relatively good shape was very good.
