Definitely five star quality

I have travelled extensively for twenty years and have stayed at many five star rated hotels and resorts. This hotel beats them all from an all around quality and value standpoint. Wonderful rooms, service and great food. I dined at three other restaurants during my time in Joberg, the hotel had the best food. My only complaint, the piano player in the lounge is awful.
