warm welcome received upon our arrival & throughout our stay, excellant staff during our stay
the friday evening meals were incorrecty served & supplied cold
Professionalism, helpfulness and friendliness of staff.
An appropriately priced light breakfast would be an improvement
Is quite and very conftble
the room comfort was good and the location was perfect
late check out policy given the hotel was empty
The customer service was excellant, staff through out were freindly and knowledgeable. Walking distance to shopping and Mandella square was a big plus.
General Arrival proceedures could be improved although any issues were dealt with exceeding well.
We were impressed with the upmarket decor and facilities available. The service provided by the hotel lived up to confirm this impression.
The swimming pool was small and the gym facilities were very limited
Efficient, modern and very spacious room, wonderful bed, excellent bathroom with huge walk in shower. Very friendly and attentive staff.
Some weaknesses in staff service delivery - more training needed especially for night reception - but compensated by general willingness to help and kindness.
Location of this hotel is excellent. Room are clean. No wow factory. Good 4 star hotel
No complimentary breakfast. Check in time as it can take up to 2 hours so expect delays. The parking paying process as you have to stamp the card before you leave hotel. Make you remember work not good if you don't want to.
The breakfast hall and the friendly reception staffs. The Skye Bar barman is very friendly.
There is no tv in the bar area. It would have been great to enjoy some drinks at the bar while watching the Rugby World cup. The Skye screen is a good idea but the light makes it difficult to watch.
The hotel staff and management were very friendly and attentive. The restaurant was very good, I highly recommend the buffet breakfast to start out your day. Access to shopping areas and dining was very easy and the hotel provided transportation to and from at no charge. We returned to the hotel for an unscheduled one night stay after our hunting safari prior to our departure from Johannesburg because my wife and I were very impressed with the hotel and we wanted a good nights rest.
Its location was great and I was able to get a cheaper room rate by booking early on line.
I felt that as a guest with a vehicle you should be able to park for free in the hotel your are staying, and also be given free wifi, so I will not be staying here again...as most cafes have fee wifi in this day and age....having to pay for these two items did not make me want to stay here again.Also I had booked a twin room as below and received a double, quite clearly we wanted two single beds.
The staff were excellent and very helpful....I left some expensive items in my room in error after checking out and these were all put aside safely for me....thank you.
I struggled to use the aircon....needs better explaination. The pillows and duvets inners were filled with hollow-fibre (synthetic ) ....I think guests should be offered alternative ie down inners . Otherwise all good.
Customer service from the front desk is usually poor. I waited for my iron board for about an hour. Made me late for meeting . Simply because customer service could not pick up phone.
Easy access to "everything" in Sandton, including shopping and medical facilities
Too expencive compared to the standard.
The concerige was excellent and so was his staff
Th bill was unclear and they seemed confused regarding payment which isnt reassuring.
