4/10 Fair

A pleasant garden but hotel needs updating
It was hard to find using GPS because there are several Pretorius Roads in Midrand. The room was stifling hot because a radiator had been left on. The wi-fi didn't work in the room. The power went off and nobody know how to put it back on.

Excellent Service
Stayed for a few nights on business. Really nice place with excellent service. I locked my keys in my car and, without asking, received assistance from two employees. They left what they were supposed to be doing to try and assist me. I ill definately return on my next business trip to JHB.

Good breakfast but freezing in room
Acceptable 3 star establishment but not great on very cold winter nights. Inadequate heating in room. Friendly staff and a very nice breakfast. A great venue in summer, no doubt!
