Positive Reviews

A very pretty property, indoors and out

Most travellers rave about the property's look and atmosphere, describing the guest rooms and the lounge areas as very stylishly decorated and comfortingly homey. The guest rooms are widely considered spacious and airy, with high ceilings and very comfortable beds. The courtyard is also a very popular place to relax; guests love that it receives the sun all day, with a wide variety of flowers in the gardens. Guests are generally very pleased with the high standard of housekeeping and general maintenance as well.

High marks for the hospitality

The front desk personnel and bar staff have earned a lot of praise for their friendly, attentive, and professional hospitality. Travellers also thank the wait staff for their prompt and courteous service.

A trendy yet quiet location

Guests like the hotel's location on a quiet street in upscale Rosebank and often comment that the neighbourhood's attractive shopping mall is within reach on foot or a very short drive. Travellers also appreciate that the Gautrain metro station is within walking distance.

Negative Reviews

Not the best fit for the fit

Fit travellers are annoyed to discover that the property does not have a gym, and the pool, though attractive, is not heated and can be uncomfortable for swimming. The hotel has an arrangement with a fitness club in the neighbourhood, but the service is chargeable and transportation is not provided.

Limited menu at the on-site restaurant

Though many compliments go to the chef at the on-site fine dining restaurant, guests generally agree that the menu is not very extensive. The breakfast choices are particularly limited, which can become problematic for guests staying longer than a weekend.
