This is a surprisingly well priced hotel for a five star, and if you can forgive the slightly convoluted feng-shui, you will totally enjoy the experience. You will be met as you step out of the car at the entrance, with a welcome drink and a warm hand towel to refresh yourself. It’s a lovely welcome. The rooms are spacious and well specced, there are a couple that have their own jacuzzis with decks that look across the Joburg skyline. The staff are lovely, very helpful and attentive.
