Ok folks, when we booked this hotel from the Uk I was drawn to the beautiful night photograph of the Hotel. We are those kind of people who go by gut instinct and honestly we were not disappointed in any way. We were due to stay for one night only and then move onto Safari for the next two days....

This hotel is easily the most unique place we've stayed in years. Lovely characterful rooms, graet vibe and lots of quirky things to look at. Loved the pool, the bar and fab breakfast each morning. I don't really like 'theme' hotels but this place is worth it :) p.s. the tortoises in the gardens were a highlight xxx

Booked the venue for our company's annual sales meeting conference. From the moment we arrived the staff was amazing - friendly, courteous and happy to assist us with any and all of our needs. The venue is picturesque, the food/snacks was out of this world and their equipment for conferencing was more than adequate (almost felt like a holiday breakaway,...

Villa Simonne is a delightful gem in one of the leafy central suburbs of Johannesburg. Conveniently close to the highway and malls, yet within a beautiful, large, spacious garden which creates a calm, tranquil space. Absolutely outstanding personalized service. It truly exceeded my expectations.

I attended a Russian evening in Feb 2017 at Villa Simonne and the stunning venue really surprised me by its beauty and elegance. My experience was a very pleasant one, the staff of Villa Simonne ensuring that all the guests felt at home and were well taken care of.

We stayed at this 'boutique' hotel over the weekend for a wedding. We were very disappointed with the service, largely due to how understaffed they are. Food was very average and took 90 mins to arrive. Patrons started serving their own drinks after getting fed up of waiting for the barman. Rooms were alright, but could use a bit of...
