My stay here was very pleasant, the theme is set to be like an old English building, there is a library, lots of lounge areas, nice pool, free wifi etc. The food is very nice and the staff are very friendly. Nice safe indoor parking with 24 hour security. Well situated near Sandton Mall

The security is major issue in Johannesburg and this hotel is located in relatively safe area. The services was average and nothing exceptional to praise about. The Air conditioning was working in our room and the reception after checking the system agreed to change our room and the new room was not any better. It was pleasant, but I am...

We have just returned from our most recent stay at this hotel and whilst the staff were very helpful and rooms kept clean, it is beginning to lack something. We stay in a deluxe room which is lovely and very comfortable but we had two issues. This is a business/traveller hotel in a great location and suits us as we...

I was given accommodation at the Faircity Quatermain Hotel, courtesy of some colleagues. I was pleasantly surprised at the calm elegance of the hotel, and its size, as the taxi pulled off the main road to the entrance. Whilst a reasonably modern building, it does not look or feel as modern as the photographs....more of that in a moment. The...

I too quickly forget how this place made me feel, hence I often opt to save money and visit this place base on an expedia special rate. The special rates are really good. However after half an hour in the room you are quickly overcome by a dusty smell and stuffy feeling in your head. That is followed by burning...

A very nice intimate, peaceful hotel within the city yet filled with country comforts. We had one of the corner units with direct access to the pool and courtyard. We really enjoyed our stay, we can't wait to come back again.

I highly recommend staying in this wonderful hotel. All the rooms have an old world colonial charm. But that is not all. The surrounding gardens and Koi fiish Pond is gorgeous and peaceful and certainly rejuvenates the soul after a busy business day or intence sight seeing schedules. I arrived at the hotel extremely stressed and found myself feeling totally...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two nights for the first part of our honeymoon. When we arrived I was shocked to find out that they had doubled charged me for another room.
