A diamond in the city!!
Had a great stay! The staff is professional but they could be friendlier. It would be nice if they had complimentary condoms in the room. Also, we didn't know which number to dial for was not displayed on the bedside. Overall: it's a great hotel!

I would stay here again
The hotel and the staff were greatly accommodating. The breakfast provided to guest in the morning was absolutely delicious and filled with all the morning favorites from pastries, eggs your way, fruit, yogurt, fresh juice, coffee, tea, sausage, etc. I really appreciated the staff's hospitality. I do wish the surrounding area was better but Maboneng is about a 10 min drive. I would stay at The Reef again.
