Went there for meeting of local community group. The hotel has lovely grounds and its suburban feeling so close to Sandton works great. Efficient service and professional setup. Would seriously consider this for businesspeople looking for accommodation in Sandton but slightly out of the hustle and bustle.

My two bff's and I visited the small yet luxurious spa in Nov. Highly refommended! We really enjoyed the treatments, the exclusive privacy of the spa (they can obly accomodate 6-8 to capacity) and the delicious lunch (paid for separately) afterwards. Definitely worth a visit for a small, yet discerning group of friends.

Why is this hotel not listed under your hotels in Johannesburg. It is a special, prestigious and exquisite boutique hotel. I recommend this hotel for dinners, intimate functions and meetings. Awesome staff and attention to detail.

Perfect getaway place, but also nice on business travel. Located only 5mins from Sandton business district. Large rooms with spacious balconies, very friendly staff, good breakfast, clean and safe. They also have a spa and two pools. The hotel offers complimentary transfers to places in Sandton.

My mom, bridesmaids and I had our nails done for my wedding at The Marion on Nicol Spa. They made it so special and we had such fun. Thank you for doing our nails so nicely. The Spa is so well run and we have also had great massages there in the past.

I was very disappointed with Marion on Nicol. We had our year end lunch there which was booked in September already. Two days before the event I went to do normal checks, I found the swimming dirty like it has not been cleaned in weeks. I was promised that this would be sorted before our function. This to my shock...

We hosted a ladies' soriee with the Marion and they went above and beyond for us making the occasion a very memorable one. From Issac, our professional and exceptional waiter, to the venue coordinator, Thelma, we really couldn't have been more pleased. We highly recommend this establishment for small intimate events as they provide an amazing ambiance with delectable food...

Beautifully and luxuriously appointed room with awesome bathroom including soaker tub. Our room included a small balcony and nespresso maker. Had dessert both nights and they were phenomenal - one chocolate and one fruit - phenomenal! The internet was too slow to do any work, although that could have been specific to our room and it is pretty far from...

Five-star food, great service and ample and safe parking. Close enough to the business district yet set in a suburb. The power tripped a few times during one presentation but excusable as there was some construction going on in the street nearby.
