Good enough to be true!

Incredible service anticipating your every need, serene ambiance with beautiful furnishings, great value for a 5 star experience!
Our stay at The Residence exceeded our expectations in every way. From our pick up at the airport in a Rolls-Royce to the staff greeting upon arrival, to the incredible ambience and service, this is a hotel not to be missed! The staff anticipated our needs before we needed to ask for anything. Breakfast was wonderful served in our suite and dinners were excellent sitting in the dining room by the fireplace. We can't say enough about this hotel and we will be back next time in Joburg!
