The structure is located in the heart of Sandton, 10 minutes walking from the Sandton City shopping mall. The hotel has a unique old fashion style and, differently from other structures, has been developed horizontally (which means it could take 10 minutes to reach your room). The restaurant nearby called The Bull Run is very nice.
There wasn't any critic point. About parking, the hotel has a convention with the nearby shopping mall (whom access is internal at the hotel itself) and it is necessary to use the parking receipt. Anyway, once understood the system it is ok.
Clean clean clean...
the location and the room and balcony
Location is perfect for me. Breakfast has changed over the last few years.. By not offering the same produce..
I have been requesting a loyalty card for the past 2-3 years but still haven't received one. even speaking with the receptionist, doesn't seem to make it happen..
The hotel is located on a large expanse of land that did not look it from outside. It's comfortable and the staff were helpful. I requested for a late check out and it was granted by the manager.
The heater in the room did not seem to work well. I could have called for assistance but did not.
