My stay started out okay at this 4 star hotel, well situated in the Morningside area of town but my last 2 days were not okay on account of a problem with the hot water. After a long day just wanted to unwind and take a long bath, to my surprise there was no hot water. Well these things can happen I guess so I promptly told the reception about it so it could be fixed by the next day. In the morning...Still no hot water. I told the reception again, thinking that they would have the whole day again to fix it but upon returning to the hotel the problem was not resolved. The manager said that the maintenance crew had tried to fix it but fixed the wrong "thing", which means that they never went into any of the rooms to see if they had actually fixed it. They could not switch my room because it was the whole back block of the hotel and the only rooms left also didn't have hot water! I left in the morning with yet another cold shower. Sorry folks but this is unacceptable, even it it meant having someone work on it all night, it should have been fixed. Oh, and also food at the hotel restaurant takes 45 minutes to prepare! Order early! Safe in the room doesn't function either. Change to 2 stars maybe 3 at best.

Dear David V My sincere apologies regarding the frustration of the hot water scenario, we understand fully your unhappiness and concern. I too believe it is unacceptable, and will use your motivation to retrain the team on response time and making guest service the utmost priority. I will take this up with the Manager of Maintenance as there seems to be a communication gap between the teams, we were aware of a water issue, but most importantly I was never advised of the length of the outage, and was of the opinion it was quickly rectified. Again I apologise for both the water issue and the service of food issue you have mentioned, I trust we can find a way to entice you back to the property to enjoy the service we are better known for. Kind Regards Jerod Flaum General Manager

I've stayed at this hotel twice in the past 2 months. The staff are great ; the rooms and bathrooms are well appointed, if in need of a soft refurb. The beds are particularly comfortable. I particularly like the shuttle service to and from Sandton Gautrain and the Sandton Convention Centre. Breakfast is available from 6:30am - and its a simple but comprenensive spread of offer.

Here is an amazing gem in the heart of Sandton that blends old fashion attention to detail and a service excellence with an incredible ambiance that makes you wish you could bottle up the experience and take it away. From the welcoming guard to the delightful reception staff to the wonderful Baritas makes this a great all round experience.

Pathetic service and no way of contacting the accounts department. They just keep putting the phone down. Booked for 12 nights through Booking.com with no cancellation costs. Cancelled reservation due to change of plans within 5 day and over 2 months prior to my stay. Confirmation of cancellation received with zero costs but the hotel had already put a debit on my card for the full amount and after numerous calls I’m still not able to get a refund. Spoke to Barbara the duty manager who has now escalated to the front desk manager Precious. Wait and see what’s going to happen but all this time I’m being charged not just the interest but FX and bank charges. Beware of their so called free cancellation!

The receptionist was rude and snooty, and the room (Executive Room) , was dark and old fashioned. This place seriously needs a revamp and refurbishment in order for it to be brought up to date with the modern times. I checked out before I had spent the night there as I just could not bring myself to sleep there !
