                            There is nothing to dislike about this hotel. Yes it's a little expensive but it's worth every penny if you have them.

                            Staff friendly, nice property

                            Terrible food, slow service

                            The room was very spacious and had a small balcony with a great view. It was very quiet and comfortable. The business center was well equipped with several computers and complimentary coffee/tea/mineral water. A great view also from the pool bar outside where we had lunch. Service was very friendly and helpful (except one blond young lady at reception who was quite indifferent).

                            The food for lunch and dinner could have been more tasteful. Breakfast is quite expensive and so are the airport transfers.

                            Luxurious resort style in a city hotel is a rare combination

                            The hotel's associated transport company were a material disappointment

                            The staff and service were superb. I had injured myself whilst travelling and they changed our room to ensure I did not have to climb or walk too far to get to the restaurants. The room they gave us was definitely an upgrade and a delight to spend time in. Food in the restaurants was lovely and with beautiful views over the city was a lovely place to dine. All in all a wonderful 2 nights in a stunning hotel.

                            Great views and the possibility to walk around after sunset.

                            Relatively high priced, but certainly worth it.

                            A very nice, well-appointed hotel with a certain old-school charm. Very comfortable room, with an excellent bed.

                            The hotel is starting to feel a little bit dated, and is a little rough around the edges - as an example we had two sinks in the suite, and on one, the cold water tap didn't work. I also found them to be a little bit cheap - when I pay more than EUR300 for a room, I don't expect to have to pay more for water in the room, yet after the first small bottle of water, they charged me ZAR30 per bottle from the minibar. That's something I have never experienced at Taj, Oberoi, Hyatt or even many of the less expensive Jo'burg hotels we stayed at on this trip! And to get the minibar re-plenished, we had to call the front desk 3 times. It left a bad taste after what was otherwise a very nice stay. Come on, Orient Express - learn how to do proper luxury!

                            Setting beautiful, facilities luxurious although there are signs of fatigue as far as Polo Bar and Restaurant are concerned.

                            The gardens are beautiful, the rooms have the proportions and style of a by gone era. The view over Johannesburg is lovely. The attention to detail is spot on. Our room was quiet and well heated. There was ample under cover parking.

                            Everythings were perfect. The tast of the diner was verry good for us because it was not too salty, sweety, spycy and food stuffs were mild taste. The room was clean and much comfortable for us to stay. Thank you.

                            I needed to listen to your porter that he did not give us the explanation about usage for the switches on the wall. Restaurant did not open at 7 o'clock. But there was the discription on the guide booklet in the room.
