The booking was made 4 weeks in advance with a table allocated. On arriving we found that the dining room was re-figured in boarding school 10 seater paralell rows not conducive to fine dining.Part of the guests ordered starters...50 min wait!! mains arrived 45 min thereafter ...1meal 10 min after that. Oxtail re- cooked not fresh perhaps frozen. duck dry and stringy. fish partly raw..we suppose due to freezing and not being thawed correctly. We made the mistake of ordering an overcooked thick rubberised ?? presented as a ' crepe" The waiters " Bless her soul " tried to do her best with 2 untrained helpers. All in all there were 2 tables and a very very loud Hens party.Prices above average but for the quality presented excessive. Table settings very good but sadly NEVER to return !

It was the third time we went for breakfast at the hotel and the standard remains Excellent at all time! Order items from the menu and after breakfast you can have your tea or coffee in their lounge on the luxurious couches. Eggs Benedict very good! The décor in the lounge and restaurant are stunning! Lovely spa. Great hotel to treat someone for a meal and a spa treatment. Only went for breakfast.

To be clear this is a review on the restaurant and the spa.

My husband and I booked the double indulgence at the Spa to celebrate a birthday. the facilities at the spa are very good, although it is tiny. Our treatments included the sauna, steam room, body scrubs, full body massages, manicures and pedicures. They were all wonderful, the Barbor products they use are great. The only compliant I have is that the ladies who were treating us were whispering and giggling quite a bit which was annoying.

We ordered lunch from the restaurant Am.Biance and it was divine. The spicy prawns and crocodile springrolls to start were delicious. The oxtail main was even better!

Overall we had a good time.

I met up with a friend to unwind at the spa and have some lunch. It's a lovely little place with an intimate spa and modern minimalistic opulent decor. The whole body massage, Babor facial and pedi were all lovely - Ntokozo was professional and courteous:-)

Lunch at the Marion on Nicol was simply divine dzhaling! Our host Darlington was professional, cheerful and very attentive. The food was just insanely amazing! The tomato soup starter, salmon main and the dessert are a flawless knockout 20/10.
My friend equally enjoyed her meal too. Kudos to the chef and the whole team in the kitchen!

Went there for meeting of local community group. The hotel has lovely grounds and its suburban feeling so close to Sandton works great. Efficient service and professional setup. Would seriously consider this for businesspeople looking for accommodation in Sandton but slightly out of the hustle and bustle.

My two bff's and I visited the small yet luxurious spa in Nov. Highly refommended! We really enjoyed the treatments, the exclusive privacy of the spa (they can obly accomodate 6-8 to capacity) and the delicious lunch (paid for separately) afterwards.

Definitely worth a visit for a small, yet discerning group of friends.
