Visited this hotel last year on Business. Facilities are great and the staff lovely. They could not do enough to help everyone. The area around the hotel is also quiet, safe and clean. The local shopping area will keep you occupied for a few hours and the cafes and restaurants serve good food. Definitely worth a try!

I stayed at this hotel for one night while I was preparing to head the Kruger for safari the next day. It's in a great part of town and there are several bars/restaurants and even a comedy club nearby. On occasion we came back to the hotel to find complimentary champagne at the front desk which was a nice touch....

An awesome hotel with the most amazing breakfast! The rooms are gorgeous as is the entire hotel it provides and delivers that extra special service and added "Glam". If you want to be spoilt this is the hotel for you. There are so many little extra surprises. The area for shopper is also great.

Hotel is so overpriced and amenities and service does not live up to the pricing. First off, there are no irons or ironing boards in the rooms which is such a basic amenity all other hotels have. Breakfast here is the most mediocre of any similarly priced hotel I've been to. But my biggest qualm with this hotel is the...

Absolutely worthy of its five star rating, this hotel is pure luxury with fantastic amenities and wonderful service. The helpful concierge arranged my transport from the hotel to the conference centre so I didn't have to worry about knowing where to go. Also the shower was the best hotel shower I have ever had!

After staying in both hotels (African Pride and 54 on Bath) I have to say that while the African Pride is great if you need to stay in Melrose Arch, it's not my favorite. I do prefer it to the Fire & Ice down the street, but still. The front desk team is pleasant and the rooms are clean and...

Spent one night in a Deluxe Room. The hotel is gorgeous and although the rooms haven't changed much in the years they have been open, the bed and pillows are superb and it was a great nights sleep!
