Lovely rooms that keep you super warm in the winter. The staff are very friendly and it feels like a home away from home. It is a very good locaction, near to Sandton City. I would definitely go back.

Overall - please with my stay. Staff was very helpful. Will definitely consider staying with you on my next travel" Why does the commentary section stipulate the minimum characters? It would not allow me to submit my review with fewer characters. Not a yoga!
