What a beautiful oasis in the city! Great little hotel. Beautiful lawns and gardens and very spacious rooms! Great bathrooms and lovely spa, with great outdoor treatment area! Beautiful and romantic dining in the evening, and great offerings for breakfast as well.

I loved everything about the rooms and the hospitality was amazing. The staff went out of their way to assist when I needed help. I loved the ambiance too. It a spot where one can go to relax and retreat.

Wonderful atmosphere. Beautiful surroundings that makes one feel as if they have escaped the city (whilst still in the city). Friendly, helpful and efficient staff. The rooms are elegant to a fault, and would love to experience more on offer in the future. The spa is wonderful, and one of the most stunning and relaxing I have ever experienced. The...

The restaurant was not good. My wife ordered her steak medium well and it came rare. When we complained we got an apology. That's it! Are you kidding me in this day and age? Just a general lack of attention to detail.

Every room is different and well appointed. Their service was impeccable. The hotel shuttled us to anyplace in Johannesburg we wanted to go. There were great recommendations for restaurants and personnel was very friendly. I did not give them five stars because the food on premise was not very good for a five star hotel but everything else was outstanding!...

Starting with our arrival, we were impressed with the staff's dedication to serving our needs. Unlike many places, arriving before check-in time was not treated as a problem we had to endure, but an opportunity to welcome us. We were directed to comfortable seats for check-in, with a wet cloth and cold drink. We then were led to the terrace...
