Ten Bompas is ideally situated in the vibrant Rosebank area surrounded with beautiful gardens and ample space to host special occasions, events and many more.
We stayed in Suite 6 which was beautifully decorated with a private lounge area, fireplace and lovely balcony overlooking the garden.
The service was great and the breakfast was superb. A nice touch is the appetizer they bring to your suite in the afternoon.
The hotel has been there for a long time and is undergoing refurbishments which will make it one of the top hotels in the area. It has ample space , large pool, lovely gardens for picnics and hosting events.
I would like to Thank Mitch and Bev for hosting me as I truly enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hotel to travellers.
This is not a hotel in the true sense of the word it is more like an apartment in a hotel.You do not stay in a room.The apartment has a small portal,a sitting room,a bedroom a bathroom and a balcony reached through sliding doors from both living- and bed room.The apartment has a complimentary bar,every drink free and replenished regularly,a fireplace,a cd player,a flat screen tv with its own decoder,a clock radio,ample space,a shower(converts into a steam bath!)a bath and 2 basins.The bed is low wide and very comfortable,the linen crisp and clean.
I found such luxury only once before in South Africa,at a lodge in the Eastern Cape.
The staff friendly and very efficient.Washing is done quickly neat and....also free!!!
The food is of a high quality actually fine dining.Fine to such an extent that some of the dishes served were hardly recognisable as those on the menu!(Maybe I am just not a foody).Wine is paired.For this you pay,quite expensive I would say.Tasty,but not worth the hefty price.But everything considered still worth the experience.
And to have had the privilege of staying at Ten Bompas was indeed an experience to remember.
The garden is well tended to except for the green water in the pool,also to be excused.
A hotel to be on the bucket list.
My friend and I stayed in this hotel 3 nights, before and after visiting Kruger National Park. We had a spacious suite, amazing bathroom with sauna and balcony. We met with a very friendly staff like Fortune and Pat who offered us a wonderful breakfast. Yogurt with cereal and fruits, scrambled eggs, bean, potatoes, avocado and cocktail juice. Swimming pool is nice and small. Garden is the time to listen to the birds. The area is closed to Hyde Park Corner and many other shops.
We enjoyed our stay in Ten Bompas. Thank you all.
Following a safari, a friend and I recently stayed in separate suites at Ten Bompas. Each of the rooms is expertly designed and lovely; we arrived to a chilled bottle of bubbly and fruit; and the steam shower was a deeply appreciated amenity following safari.
Each evening, staff delivered an amuse bouche courtesy of the hotel chef. We enjoyed a delicious meal at the Winehouse restaurant our first night there. Our following days were filled with guided day trips, which the hotel staff graciously worked with me to coordinate prior to our arrival.
We each ordered room service breakfast every morning from a menu with many offerings at very affordable price. Additional evenings were enjoyed on our oversize patio deck; we went to the corner on Jan Smits and purchased nosh from Fournas and wine from the adjacent wine shop...And, we liked relaxing in the gorgeous garden/pool area.
The whole feel is much like staying is the guest suite of a private home (which this building was in a former life). The service is friendly and accommodating. This is the kind of place I preferred to stay when I worked in a particular city for extended days, but is equally appropriate for short visit, assuming you understand the geography of Jo'Burg and that you will need to use private transport (which is true for pretty much any place).
My husband and I stayed at Ten Bompas for 2 nights over New Years while on our honeymoon. Nestled in the high end Rosebank neighborhood, this property is very serene, well-kept, and a great location. The gardens are beautiful, you can enjoy the view of that and the pool during breakfast. The room we stayed in overlooked the garden in the corner and was beautifully decorated and very clean. The steam shower was great to have and all of the amenities of the property were much appreciated specifically the laundry and dry cleaning services that were included in the cost! Fortune from the staff was so helpful with giving us guidance of where to go, what to see in our short time in JoBurg, and the rest of the staff were also so friendly and helpful. Thank you Ten Bompas for showing us a great time during our short stay in JoBurg, you were fabulous!
