The hotel is located next to Rosebank Gautrain Station (direct train access to airport), in a safe and convenient location. We had a wonderful stay there, hotel rooms were very large, the beds were comfortable and breakfast was also great!

The quiet hotel is in Rosebank close to the Mall with access to a number of restaurants within a short walk. We explored to roof top market which was bustling with lots of god arts and crafts for sale.

Beautiful hotel; a real gem. Staff was attentive and service excellent. The breakfast included both Continental offerings of fruit, cereal, yogurt, etc.. and hot menu items prepared to each guest's specifications. Elegant restaurant and pleasant outdoor patio for lunch, tea in the afternoon. Located in close proximity to Rosebank Mall for restaurants, fitness facility, shops. Would definitely stay here again.
