The hotel is tucked away , you can easily get an Uber or taxi - our booked taxi through the hotel didn’t collect us from the terminal after our overnight flight, not a good start . No hot water in our room , had to change rooms . Stayed for 3 nights only one bath towel on one day , only tiny issues but a pain - food was ok and well presented - we used the small gym , great as we were the only ones in there , but no towels on one of the days

The hotel is really lovely. It’s peaceful, calming & relaxing. It doesn’t feel like you in the city. The only downside is that I had requested for the hotel to assist in doing something special for my loved one’s birthday & I was told it’s an additional fee whereas I’ve been to many highly rated hotels before & we’ve never been asked to pay extra for these things.

The couches and carpets in the rooms, passages and reception / lounge areas need a DEEP CLEANSE. They were very dirty and stained. The curtains as well need a good wash. The doors’ paint and wood is chipping making the hotel look cheap and tacky. Hotel’a standards have really gone down. Loud and roudy guests. Couldn’t sleep. I will never return to this hotel. Pity because stayed there in 2021 and it was exceptional back then.

What a gorgeous gorgeous place!! It was pure serenity and paradise after a long flight from the UK. The staff couldn’t do anymore for you if they tried. The aesthetics of the hotel are just stunning. We stayed in a villa with plunge pool and thought our room was beautiful. We enjoyed some relaxation by the pool, dinner and breakfast were both superb. We are only sad we didn’t book longer but used as a stopover before heading to our safari. Would highly recommend this hotel 🥰

Possibly the best customer service in Johannesburg at Seven! The rooms were immaculate and the decor is out of a magazine! The food was delicious and well-priced. Excellent facilities for a relaxing trip! Worth the money :)

My husband and I spent an evening at The Seven Villa Hotel. We were welcomed with huge smiles. The waitor took us to our beautiful decorated table..served us immediately. We then went to have some treatments at the Camelot Spa it was just luxurious..we felt very pampered. Then dinner was served which was delicious. 5star rating and a must try for a couples night out.

I hope this letter reaches you with a sincere desire for constructive feedback and a commitment to improving your esteemed establishment, Seven Villas Hotel & Spa. Regrettably, I must convey my profound disappointment and frustration with the series of issues I experienced during my stay from the 23rd of September till the 25th of September. To begin, my reservations ordeal set a negative tone for my visit. Although my payment was accepted, I did not receive a hotel booking confirmation. Upon contacting the hotel, I was transferred to reservations, where I was informed that my booking did not appear in the system. I was advised to call back in an hour due to a potential system issue. When I complied, I was informed that there was a payment error, causing my initial payment not to go through. While seeking clarification on my side, I faced an unwarranted irritation from the staff. To resolve the matter, I reluctantly made a second booking. Upon my arrival at the hotel, I promptly addressed my concerns, and your staff assured me they would investigate. Regrettably, upon checking out, there was still no resolution. Subsequent calls to the hotel led to frustration, as I was consistently met with transferred calls and no viable solutions. It was only after I expressed my dissatisfaction vehemently that I was finally informed that indeed, the payment had gone through twice. This entire situation could have been avoided with diligent verification when I first inquired about the payment discrepancy. Instead, I encountered a severe lack of professionalism, numerous transfers with no resolution, and unhelpful responses from your staff. Upon my arrival, I endured a one-hour wait to check in, which was a disconcerting start to my stay. The service I received throughout my visit was consistently subpar. Calls were transferred without anyone picking up, despite numerous attempts to seek assistance. The lack of professionalism among your staff was evident as I struggled to address my concerns. Furthermore, the bathroom in the room was leaking and did not flush properly, compromising comfort. During a dining experience at your establishment, I ordered drinks, only to have the waiter inexplicably disappear, leaving me waiting in frustration. To add to my frustration, my attempts to obtain a refund for the double charge have been a protracted and unfruitful process. Two weeks later, and I’m still struggling. Four days have elapsed since the refund, and it has yet to reflect in my account. My numerous calls to the hotel have been met with no response as I continue to be transferred to the head office or back to the hotel, leading to further dismay. I must emphasise that, as someone with a background in hotel management, holding both a Swiss bachelor's and master's degree in the field, and having worked numerous five-star hotels, I have never encountered such unprofessional and unacceptable treatment. I implore you to address these concerns promptly and comprehensively, not only to resolve my issue but also to improve the overall guest experience at Seven Villas. I believe it is vital to uphold the reputation and standards associated with a five-star hotels. I trust that your commitment to excellence will drive meaningful changes within your organisation to prevent such experiences for future guests. I personally would never come back. Our first experience was amazing, which led us to book again. However a year later, it seems as if the professionalism and personal touch is gone. Would never recommend anyone to come here. Sincerely, Celine

Great overnight stay for hubby's birthday. Everything was planned well. They had a nice package which included a massage. We really enjoyed a night out from home and the kids. It was a pity the jacuzzi didn't work, but it was still a good escape!

I absolutely would not recommend this place. It is NOT. A five star experience. You lied about the heated pool on your website (false advertising) Lied about being halal friendly (false advertising) Bed sheets which gave my wife a rash. That means it’s dirty or using cheap detergent. Jacuzzi was broken in the room. Took a while to get it fixed. The only compliment was the staff. The chef was honest about the halal food, which I greatly appreciated and staff was friendly. Avoid! Use your hard earned money elsewhere.
