Johannesburg, South Africa
Reviewed 19 February 2016

My husband and I are Johannesburg residents and booked a night away to celebrate a wedding anniversary away from the kids. The service was friendly and efficient from the moment we entered reception to check in. The hotel also went out of their way to make the anniversary occasion special with chocolates, a specially made up room, champagne and even...

The hotel staff and environment really contributed to our quest for a break/holiday during our stay. The rooms are sound proof; user friendly and calming. Shopping is right a step away from the hotel room; which was a bonus for me.

This hotel is well located and easy to find. There is something for everybody. Lovely bar and pool deck with a classic view over the green northern suburbs. The Hyde Park shopping centre has everything one could want and is virtually connected to the hotel. The rooms are not quite up to 4 star standard. The bathroom is hardly separated...

Reviewed 2 February 2016

Rooms above the busy bar are shocking, the rooms are not checked for faults such as working phone, hot water, Windows don't close Frequent guests should never be placed above the noisy bar during a weekend when the hotel is not full and if they are they must be informed so they can choose to go to another hotel

As there are no other hotels in the vicinity and the bar has a nice view, this hotel has an inflated opinion of its quality. In reality the rooms are not much better than those found in a motel. The staff are by and large friendly and keen to help but you will not get a smile from reception, I...
