Totally enjoyed Four Season. The staff were incredible. At the front the two ladies were excellent, and in the restaurant as well. The food was awesome, and the drinks by the infinity pool was excellent.

If you have never stayed in a four seasons hotel you are in a real treat here! Ive never felt so secure staying in a hotel they have about five police vans at the entrance and other security surrounding the place. The inside is like a french / african kingdom and the view from most of the rooms is breathtaking...

Clearly this hotel is not yet up to the standard of a Four Seasons. Hotel is located in a beautiful setting. Hotel is not very well maintained and needs some basic upgrading. Certain staff members were very attentive, others less so.

Rooms are awesome and customer service was excellent. Definitely worth another stay. Staff went out their way to assist with requests. Sun downer drinks together with the view was wonderful and Food in The Cellar was thoroughly enjoyable .

Having celebrated a number of special occasions at "the old Westcliff" we were really looking forward to our stay at the revamped Westcliff. The grounds and facilities are immaculate, the service is a big let down. Service or the lack of it, was really disappointing. The hotel rooms are spacious and comfortable and a nice touch is the Nespresso machine....

Our family group spent one night at the Four Seasons Johannesburg at the end of our vacation to South Africa and Mozambique. We were two couples and one 6-year-old. We were given neighboring rooms at the top of the hill. My guess is that these rooms are classified as having a view, but all you could see from the room...

What a great experience. We loved this hotel. We spent 2 nights in Jo'burg to get acclimated to South Africa on our way to a (photo) safari near Kruger and we made the perfect choice. Staying here was a mini-vacation unto itself. Having stayed in several Four Seasons around the world (and having visited/dined at quite a few beyond that),...

Stayed here whilst in Johannesburg for a business trip. I travel a lot and have stayed in a lot of hotels and after a long think...this one was by far the best I've ever been to.
