The staff at the hotel treated us like family. Hotel manager Tania, Nonnie, and the rest of the staff were absolutely wonderful. We visited during the beginning of the coronavirus and they were always very helpful with information and helping us figure out travel plans. There are many unique lounges, Apple computers, nice bar inside with outside seating near pool, good restaurant and room service, cool milkshake bar, and the best breakfast spread we had during our trip to South Africa. I wholeheartedly thank Tania and her staff for a great stay! Read less

In Santon, ultra secured area, far from the centre of Johannesburg. We did room service for dinner, which was fine, and reasonably priced. I felt like a "wanna-be" hotel, décor probably cost a lot of money for a pretentious result. Read less
