All I can say is that you will not find a better place to stay in all of Africa!!! It is stunning! The food is second to none and the chef deserves a Michelin star. Nothing is too much for them whether it is ironing your shirt before supper or tending to any request. A must must must stay!!!!

Our family spent 2 nights at the hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean with good amenities. The staff is excellent. The meals we had there were very good & they catered well to our vegetarian diet and a nut allergy. The hotel is in a nice suburb of Johannesburg.
