What an unorganized business. I called the hotel to book for the Easter Lunch advertised on their web site for Easter Sunday the 16th of April starting at 11am. After the reservations person took my details he told me the Easter Lunch was actually on Monday the 17th starting at 12 noon. I asked him why what he told me...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 March 2017

Instead of driving from the airport as usual I decided to board the gautrain to Sandton to save some time. The gautrain station in Sandton is opposite the hotel so this was extremely convenient. I picked up my car from the car rental located in the same building as the hotel. This was really convenient. I was very impressed with...

This was an emergency stay, necessitated by my need to catch a 10am flight out of OR Tambo. Our experience here has made this one of the best decisions I've made concerning my early flights.

The hotel has very good rooms, modern and spacious. It is not possible to rely on the swimming pool which is super small and can not be used for swimming. The service is less responsive than expected from a high class hotel. Decent place as a whole, considering the not cheap cost (more than 100 usd per night).

We visited the hotel in January 2016. It is across from the Gautrain station and from the Sandton Square, which makes it hugely convenient. Rooms are brightly painted. The m, and bathroom was compact but sufficient. Breakfast is a great range of good quality dishes.

Very nice and convenient business hotel located next to Sandton City shopping mall. There is a shuttle that goes to the mall once per hour (until 10 pm). It only takes 3 minutes to drive there. They should make it more frequent but you can always work around their times as it always leaves at the same time. The hotel...

passed Johannesburg for transit and spent a night in the city. this is a good place to spend a day and night as it is walking distance from the train station (trains travel direct from the airport) and the complex of Sandton Mall and Nelson Mandela Square.

Great service, excellent food choices, very comfortable rooms that are well appointed. Great that you can get the Gautrain from the airport and then it is a simple walk across the road to the hotel which of course removes safety concerns.
