Attended this lovely hotel for a family wedding, had a wonderful time. The location is fabulous, bedrooms very stylish, the pool in the rear and the gardens below it are beautiful. The rooms and settings for functions are decorated very gracefully, staff were lovely just a great experience, highly recommended.

We had a wonderful evening at the Munro, starting with the drive up the enchanting canopied driveway that sweeps up to the beautiful hotel. It is exquisite. And the view from the house across northern Johannesburg is stunning.
