Just held a two day conference with 170 delegates from around South Africa, neighbouring countries and overseas guest speakers. All were very happy with the facilities. The staff were friendly and approachable making this a good conference venue. The buffet meals were good but serving could have been somewhat faster.

Whilst working in SA for a 3 month period, I was unlucky enough to spend my first 4 weeks in this dump. Stayed in the apartment and for the first week the Aircon wasn't working, it took my boss to literally shout at the manager of this hotel for it to be repaired, only to stop working 3 days later....

The major renovations at this hotel are completed and has a quite environment. The rooms are clean and neat but no ironing service is catered for. The wallrobes are small hence suitable for short stays or daily unpacking from your suitcase. The Wifi service is still poor and difficult to access in the rooms. Nice small swimming pool is available.

Wow, what a gem in Randburg. Arrived at night without prior booking and the staff were really helpful in getting me a room. The night manager especially was really friendly and efficient.

I was somewhat underwhelmed by the service received at this hotel. The rooms are spacious, but with only 1 cupboard with almost no packing space for clothes that cannot be hanged.

The rooms have been recently refurbished and are tiled everywhere with no rugs or carpets. They are therefore very clean. There was a small desk and a cupboard with hanging space and a small safe that could not fit a laptop. There were no drawers or shelves anywhere so you literally had to live out of your suitcase. There was... More
