Harare, Zimbabwe

Stayed for a conference and then for meetings in Johannesburg. Rooms were super clean, and bed was comfortable. However, the two chairs were rickety and the 'desk' far too high to be comfortable to work at. The internet connection is useless in the rooms and patchy in conference room. For two full days there was no internet at all. There...

Did not enjoy staying in this hotel. Its too far from anything worth seeing or doing. The view from my room was the worst as it was facing some apartment building and parking lot. Also they don't allow you to eat in your room!? What is that about? In all my travels never heard of this rule in a hotel....

It has been some years since we used this venue and in that time the place has been freshened up and the staff are collectively the friendliest and most helpful we have experienced for some time. We called for the traditional three quotes, Florence responded within an hour (over a weekend), the second came back with questions on Monday afternoon...

Very sterile hotel, but a good venue for conference, not for a relaxing holiday. Lousy dinner with very slow shoddy service. Decent wifi speed available in rooms. Good conference facilities. Good breakfast

Upon arriving at Sierra Square on Friday night at 7pm we were informed after waiting 15 minutes for the only receptionist on duty to assist us that she couldn't find the booking, she then called someone who confirmed the booking and...

Reviewed 10 October 2016

Just held a two day conference with 170 delegates from around South Africa, neighbouring countries and overseas guest speakers. All were very happy with the facilities. The staff were friendly and approachable making this a good conference venue. The buffet meals were good but serving could have been somewhat faster.

Reviewed 24 March 2016

The major renovations at this hotel are completed and has a quite environment. The rooms are clean and neat but no ironing service is catered for. The wallrobes are small hence suitable for short stays or daily unpacking from your suitcase. The Wifi service is still poor and difficult to access in the rooms. Nice small swimming pool is available.
