The hotel is well situated and in a beautiful setting adjacent to the iconic Wanderers Club. Rooms are a bit old and tired but comfortable. The staff, while friendly are not well trained at all. On check in they wanted me to put my pin into the card machine for the deposit - which would have made it a sale,...

I stayed here for only one night. The hotel made a good impression and the rezeption staff were very friendly. Also the waiter in the bar was very kind and friendly. All together was the hotel ok for a one nite stay.

I was impressed with how clean this hotel was and also with the efficient and pleasant staff. The rooms were well kept and spacious. The buffet breakfast was excellent with many choices of food available--American and African. The wait staff was always available to fill your coffee cup or to get you anything you wanted. Overall, an excellent hotel.

The hotels rooms are average even when you upgrade to a Luxury Suite. Grounds are nice with the vineyard look and the Wanderers Golf Club opposite the hotel. Staff at the bar was excellent, coping with all the rugby fans. Hotel lobby personnel is uninformed with anything that goes on outside of the hotel. Don't expect to get any suggestions...

A great hotel in Johannesburg with excellent access to Melrose, Sandton, Rosebank, etc. and reasonably close to the Gautrain for airport access. The room was spacious and had everything I needed - just as expected and more. I know everyone worries about crime in Joburg (myself included) and I must add that security here was excellent.
