Positive Reviews

A superb location

Guests love that this hotel offers direct access to a shopping mall, as well as the Sandton Convention Centre. They also report that the general area feels safe and offers quick access to public transit.

Welcoming staff members

Travellers are very satisfied with the treatment they receive from the employees. They report that the staff always do what they can to make they feel valued and eager to come back on future stays in the area.

Excellent presentation

Reviewers mention that both inside the rooms and within the public areas, the hotel's appearance and cleanliness stand out. They also mention that there is a detail-oriented approach in the room design and the amenities, making them appreciate the thoughtfulness that goes into getting the rooms ready.

Negative Reviews

Slow restaurant service

Feedback indicates that the service in the restaurant is not as speedy as it should be, especially at breakfast. Guests say the employees take too long to bring them their orders or provide the bill, and do not seem sufficiently organised.

The free Wi-Fi is limited

Guests warn that the complimentary Wi-Fi has data limitations that they think are too restrictive for a property in this price range. Furthermore, it's only possible to connect five devices at a time per room.

Noise from the bar and pool area

The bar and outdoor pool can get very crowded. Unfortunately, that also means that guests can hear the resultant noise from inside their rooms, which makes it hard to rest.
