Excellent hotel , exclusive and luxurious ”

This hotel is located in joburg central , 15 min away from city central like sandton, Melrose arch etc. Great service and they serve a lovely pampering afternoon high tea. That said I do find the price is a tad too high for what it offers , for the same price in other countries, spa would have been included at this price point. I would reccomend if someone like to experience a little more luxurious and not want to spend this price to explore four season Westcliff hotel
