I stayed here in May for 3 nights. I had an awesome time here. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. Breakfast was really good. Try the mince omelette with the fresh orange juice. Dinner here is very good as well. The room was clean and pleasant. The surrounding areas had plenty of restaurants and some bars. There is also...

So, I stayed at this hotel for a month and got to know it quite well and would consider returning when next I visit Johannesburg - this means a lot because, with the exception of one hotel, I seldom return to the same hotel. My review is my personal opinion and I need to assure other visitors to consider the...

Staying at Ascot Hotel was a pleasure from the start to finish. Friendly, helpful staff, who were attentive to all needs. The room was well appointed with all amenities. The bathroom was one of the biggest I've enjoyed in a hotel. The breakfast was superb!

Everything was fine with the rooms & the locality of the hotel. We were 6 and were there for 4 nights. Breakfast had limited choice & the service was slow. We had other problems as well! We had booked 3 rooms but the hotel did not have our booking! The staff was kind enough to accommodate us with an upgrade....

Thank you for your review. We apologise that you received a slow breakfast service. As for the rooms being booked and then not having them on our system, that was because you had booked and cancelled on an outside booking system so it did not send through to our hotel system. We happily accommodated you when you needed your rooms...

I stayed at this little boutique hotel for about 5 days for a smallish meeting. Our group practically filled the hotel so it was really great for a small private board meeting. The staff was so friendly and helpful and the food was just delicious. Around the hotel are some lovely little shops - Nickel was a stand out! I...

I booked in here with a group of friends when two of them were married at nearby Shepstone Gardens. The hotel is fine. One of our friends was disappointed to find that she couldn't park her car as there is only space for a few tiny cars due to narrow parking. She didn't think the area looked safe to leave...

Thank you for your review. Parking is Norwood is always a hassle. As with most urban areas, spaces are not easy to come by. And this is something that we always say on the outset to any guest asking about parking downstairs (narrow entry and exit) but plenty of space for cars, or parking on the street. Which is safe...

Thank you for your lovely words on our hotel. We are glad that you found the hotel and staff a pleasant experience.

Reviewed 25 February 2016

We chose this hotel because of it's location. It was surrounded by nice places to eat, but it was far from everything else. We had to cab to get anywhere. It was incredibly noisy at night as well. Also, we waited 40 minutes for a breakfast, one that should have been ready in 10.

Dear Madam Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. The Ascot Boutique Hotel is actually very well situated and close to major areas such as Rosebank, Sandton, Melrose and the like. Unfortunately one does need to "cab" to most places in Johannesburg - due to the distances between places, and Norwood, where our hotel is situated, offers...

The hotel is situated in the most disturbing location where my wife and I felt unsafe.

Dear Sir Their is absolutely nothing disturbing at all about Norwood - nor the location of the hotel. It is an Urban hotel in a bustling restaurant area.

A very good hotel inside the city, at the middle of an area with a lot of shops and restaurants. The crew is very polite, kind and helpful. The hotel's restaurant is good and not expensive. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Great value for money.
