Even before we were given an upgrade we liked this place. The grounds and interior are very modern and stylish but well kept. The restaurant was not busy so we had a very pleasant time chatting to the staff. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, nothing seemed too much trouble. As we were just staying overnight before travelling to Jo'burg the spa was a splendid way to pass the morning. Just avoid the rush hour traffic getting there.

Stayed: November 2014, travelled with family

One of the worst spa experiences!
Husband and I booked a spa day as a treat.
A massage each. A facial for me and chest wax for him.
Upon arrival and after booking a week ahead we were greeted with confusion as to what our services were as if it was not discussed on booking.
Eventually we were sent to change and to massage room together were we proceeded to wait 15mins more ( it stated very clearly on the salon wall that we should be early so as not to have our experience shortened.)
Massages were eventually started which were lovely and then cut 10mins short.
I then waited for my facial( yet again 15mins) and my husband was taken to a waxing room.
My facial took 40mins. Not too bad.
My husbands wax however took an hour and 20mins for just his upper chest area as the beautician claimed to have run out of spatulas and could therefore not finish.
1 hour 20mins for such a small area!?
And to make it worse she burnt his chest area with the hot wax and lifted some of his skin here!
We changed and proceeded to pay and leave after some time as yet again no one was available to see us out at the front desk.
I will never be back and am sorely disappointed that this is the type of service a supposed Camelot trained beautician and salon and a 5star rated hotel offers it's guests!
And I highly recommend cleaning your bathrooms sometime too.
Hair extensions in basin and tissues around sink area are not what I expected of such a hotel/ spa.

We got accommodation here at very short notice. The receptionist was very friendly and the rates was good.

it was quite place in a very busy area.

The courtyard is great and the frogs was very vocal all night.

Well worth a stay.

I really enjoyed my stay more importantly since I was not on holiday but working, the internet was super, it enabled me to do my work uninterrupted. The room was awesome; I could take a break and go on the balcony with nice / refreshing view of a beautiful garden. Thumbs up!!!
