We stayed here for two weeks before moving overseas and had a very pleasant stay. The Wesley is a little difficult to find as there is no sign or indication of the hotel from the main road apart from the number on the perimeter wall. We were well looked after and the staff, especially Nolly, most helpful and kind. When...

We have stayed here for the last two years on our business trips to JHB and can't recommend it highly enough. We visit 6-8 times a year and it's our home from home. Melody and staff are very welcoming and there's little if anything to fault

The Wesley was home away from home for three weeks while I completed a training session in Sandton. The rooms are fabulous, the staff very caring and helpful, and the amenities are awesome. But nothing tops The Wesley's very unique, cosy, little bar. We will definitely be back every time we come to Sandton / Bryanston.

Very well run establishment with friendly efficient staff. Great amenities and great location. Definitely value for money.We had a lovely big room but no comfortable chairs to lounge in. The bed was great except for the wooden surround which made it hard to get in and out of or even sit on the edge of the bed.

Although far from the airport, and would never have stayed had I known, but once there was very impressed with stay, service, and very early breakfast. I would definitely stay again as a couple, as it was very well suited for a romantic occasions, having beautiful gardens and pool.

I loved my stay at the Wesley. I resided in the executive suite and found the room and ablution facilities spotless and magnificent. I loved lying in the deluxe tub - watching romcoms and reading novels. The personnel were friendly and very helpful. The only optimisation I recommend is having breakfast served to guests at their rooms. Other than this,...

We booked a standard room at The Wesley for 3 nights and according to the website promised a beautiful room. When we arrived the venue is beautiful, but was incredibly disappointed with the reality of the room we were given! The room was tiny, had a shabby feel and only had a tiny bath in a separate bathroom (see photos...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Wesley is an upmarket Guesthouse that caters for the more discerning guests. Situated in the heart of Bryanston, Sandton, surrounded by beautiful gardens and a natural bird haven which has been cultivated over decades opposite the Bryanston golf course. As one of the oldest farm houses in Bryanston, the property is situated on the highest point in the area and has been occupied by Multinational CEOs and Heads of States. The Wesley is conveniently near many popular venues, namely 10 minutes away from Sandton, Fourways, Cresta, Rosebank, Monte Casino, the highway and the Gautrain Set in an idyllic surrounding, there are few experiences that can rival sipping sundowners on the deck, listening to the gurgling of the waterfalls, basking amongst the unique bird life, and watching the setting of the magnificent South African sun! Exclusivity and privacy is the key to the service offering and each room is designed with this in mind. The entire area is covered by Cameras, electric fencing and electric beams with 24 hour guards and is truly a secure environment where you can feel at home without any worries. With a backup generator in case of power failure.The rooms vary in size from 45 to 100 square metres boasting antiques in all the rooms dating between 100 and 250 years old. The focus and design is a fusion between French Provencal with touches of ancient colonial Asia. Each of the 11 rooms has a sense of conformity with the detail presenting total individualism. The majority of the decor has been specifically imported and guests can experience treats such as slumbering on an 18th Century bed. Without giving away all the treasures to be found in the common areas, you will definitely notice the 250 year old feature door when exploring the property. There is a Cigar bar and an African Bar and a beautiful swimming pool with waterfalls and Palm trees rivaling Sun City. If you are looking for the best bouquet of offerings from personal to professional and modern to old school, The Wesley will not disappoint both private and business traveller alike. The Wesley has become 'ONE HOT TICKET' getting a full write up in the Top Billing 2011 Issue ... more   less
