A wonderful stay at the Four Seasons. On arrival i was struck by the odd layout of the buildings and the property, Nonetheless, the hotel offers a comfortable stay in the heart of leafy Joburg. The rooms — and the beds — were incredibly quiet, dark, and comfortable. The service was second to none. Thanks guys!

We had Xmas Dinner and it was top! The service was very good and the location is just a perfect surrounding. The dinner was very well cooked and served in style with perfect decoration boosting the top taste. Highly recommended!

We stayed in this hotel in what was supposed to be a deluxe room with garden view, it turned out to be a beautiful and very comfortable room with a stunning bed and bathroom but the view was over the driveway and other hotel rooms with surrounding vegetation. A Nespresso machine was supplied but with no coffee pods or milk...

Stayed here in a Park View suite in June. The room was well equipped and spacious with a terrace giving a great view of Johannesburg park and surrounding areas. Bathroom was excellent. The rooms are housed in several blocks on the slopes of a hill and one can either walk or call a cart to get around the various facilities...

We spent our wedding night here. It was really great and beautiful - excellent personalized service and great facilities. Priced very high for South Africa, but worth it for a special occasion (or if someone else is paying!!)

We had dinner at the Westcliff with a few friends. The service was good, and had great meals! The view from the patio is exceptional. It got quite windy later the evening, so i would suggest that you take something warm aling just in case.

Arrived late into J'Burg airport on 18th Dec, with one sick child, hotel had arranged transfer which was seamless, arrived at hotel and staff could not have been more helpful getting us straight to the room. Hotel is excellent, great staff and wonderful food. Heading back again so looking forward to it.

Had the opportunity of spending our wedding night at the Westcliff. Very very impressive. You enter another world as soon as you go through the gates. Perfect room and wonderful breakfast. Brunch is pricey and not worth it. But if it's a view you are after and class, you can't go wrong.

Hotel was beautiful and expansive but was not worth the price. It was our belief that everything was overpriced - to include the exorbitantly priced spa - merely because it is a Four Seasons. Room Service was severely lacking, for example we waited for two hours for ice to be delivered to our room! We had requested extra towels and...
