We aren’t familiar with the area and found the hotel on the Agoda website and got our booking at a reduced rate.

Our room was clean and of a nice standard, not fancy but comfortable.

Ricky on reception was friendly and very helpful with our requests for extra items (hairdryer, extra towels and toilet paper)
Unfortunately the bar closed at 2pm but the staff offered to open it up for us.

We didn’t eat at the hotel as we had alternative plans but the restaurant looked nice.

The garden area was tranquil with plenty of bird life.

I would stay at the hotel again for a mini break, if we were able to get a good deal like we did for this visit.

We stayed at the Sandton Lodge for 2 nights (a Tuesday and Wednesday night, to be exact). It was such a great experience. The rooms are massive and they have such a "homey" feeling to them. The balcony in our room was great for having a relaxing dinner and a nice cup of coffee in the morning. We jumped in the pool and it was freezing (considering it was the end of April, maybe not the best idea), but still a fun activity. Two things to mention:
1. We wish there had been a microwave in the room (it wasn't advertised to have one, just a heads up to those looking)
2. The extractor fan in our bathroom was extremely noisy! If you turned on the bathroom light, the extractor fan turned on and you woke up the person sleeping in bed (I am surprised it didn't wake the whole village ...). I am not too concerned about this, and I don't want you to be either, because after informing reception at departure, they said they were sending someone straight up to fix it. This is the only reason I did not give 5 stars (I am hoping it will be fixed so the next person can give them 5-star).

The staff were all very friendly and helpful!

I would definitely recommend this lodge. Quiet, peaceful, spacious, comfortable ... enjoy!

Thank you so much to the staff of Sandton Lodge. I really enjoyed my stay there. My workshop guests also had a fabulous time. The conferencing hall was the perfect space for me to host the workshop and I look forward to hosting another one there soon.

A special thank you to Loynass, who took are of all my needs from helping me setup the hall the night before to getting everything done on time the day of the workshop.

I was impressed with the check in and the room was good.

Outside of reception they put up a sign that they never start their generator after 22:00 because of load shedding. I was given suite 3, what I didn't know at the time, it was situated right next to the giant generator.

Everything was good until, to my shock and horror, they started the monster generator next to my room, at 02:00! The noise was so immense, I shouted at the top of my voice out of frustration, sure that nobody would hear me above the noise.

I lay awake for two hours, not being able to think, let alone sleep.

Dinner: for a buffet it was very disappointing. It looked like dinner at a back packers.

Room Tip: Ask about the generator. Stay away from room three and four, they're next to the thing!

I was at Sandton Lodge for a conference that I organised. The staff were extremely helpful and flexible in the lead up to the event, and very approachable and professional throughout. This was the second time to host an event at the venue. It is very safe and private; an excellent space for meetings/workshops; has a lovely garden and pool (not used as it was winter); and a family feel to the well coordinated and friendly staff. My only constructive comment is that on the first time visiting the Lodge my taxi driver was directed the wrong way as the hotel is on the corner of a private road; sharing detailed instructions with guests may be helpful to avoid this situation. Overall, I would recommend for anyone seeking a quiet space in this suburb.

The stay was ok. The food was also good. Some noise from a couple in the next room kept me awake the first night. Overall a pleasant stay. This is basically the end of my review I just need more characters.

Beautiful property. However the hotel rooms are dated in styling and poorly thought out. The staff are nonchalant and not on the ball with guest requests. The breakfast is nothing special being pretty basic. Overall a mediocre experience.

Always a great place to stay when in JHB. Staff are welcoming, rooms are clean and well equipped and the food is exceptionally good.

I would highly recommend anyone looking for a conveniently located place to choose this beautiful lodge.
