Spacious boardrooms. Nice environment and if you love horse racing, visit on a race day. Catering from Isizwe Hospitality is on point.

Fairly useless as a conference venue (Nov 2016). Advertises wifi, but won't give you the wifi password because "we don't like people using the wifi". Fantastic. A business venue without business facilities. Don't come here for a business function if you need internet connectivity.

There is racing on Sunday - first race at 13h05. Turffontein is south f the city. Would need a car to get there - try Uber.
