Excellent Service all round, highly recommended
This hotel has come a long way since covid. We stayed here during covid and again now after 2 years and we were extremely impressed all round. Service is 10/10, so is the food quality and variety. Enjoyed breakfast daily and everyone who works here are pleasant and go out of their way with a smile to ensure your stay is pleasurable and you get what you want. Best location in all of Sandton, simply stroll into Sandton City!
