The food, the staff and the bed.
It was good. I was disappointed that it was so far from everything. As there is no central transportation, I was forced to rely on transports arranged by the hotel. The transports were excellent, however, paying $90 US for a trip to the Rosebank Mall was a bit much. There were no restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. The result was I was hostage to the hotel for meals. The food was excellent. I wish I had more choices.

The hotel is a little gem in Kempton Park area

clean and spacey, very friendly and attentive staff, very good general feeling
I stayed only 2 nights at the hotel, and now I wish it was longer. The room is large and clean, interesting, pleasant design (bathtub in the room). It felt cosy and quiet to stay there. The room had everything I really needed. Airco worked well - cooling as well as heating, large and very good quality bed, internet at request, etc... Amazing breakfast in the morning. Staff and owners are really nice friendly people who try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. All by all a very good experience.

Wonderful first night in South Africa

Personal service, room location and layout, great food, the finest of small details looked after.
we had endless choices in which to stay our first night in south africa, but feel we made the best choice. the arican rock hotel is a small boutique hotel and they are sticklers on detail. we were met by a personal driver at jnb who again returned us to the airport the next morning. dinner that night and breakfast the next morning we both excellent. will stay here again if and when we make it back to sa.
Hotel Feature Tip: Personal attention as well as attention to details. Pool and great food.

Peaceful and Unique Hotel

Unique, Exclusive, Fantanstic Food, Brilliant staff, Lovely rooms, Close to Airport
I would say that this is the best place I have stayed!! Our luggage was delayed and the staff bent over backwards to help us out and give us advice on where to go shop for replacement items, they even ended up taking us themselves to the local mall when the taxi didn't show up. Eugene and Collette are absolutely wonderful people and they also know the real meaning of customer service. Christine is (as we read in previous reviews) a fantastic chef and we were spoilt by the standard of food presented at the hotel - We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who needs to stay near the airport. Oh yes and the rooms are wonderful too!
