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!

Professional staff, Spacious Room, Absolute Comfort
The Residence is amongst the best hotels that we have stayed at. Dinner was a treat and breakfast was certainly served in abundance. This hotel deserves its high rating for its professionalism, team work and attention to detail. Well done to The Residence Team!

One day stay

The friendly staff, the great service and the hot tub!
Fantastic! We stayed for one night on our way to Cape Town. Although we were there earlier than the stated check in time, the staff got our room ready for us early and couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome whilst we waited. A great stay in a great hotel.

Just quick stop between safari and beach

The bar, the room with outdoor shower, the rolls royce car service!
We really enjoyed it for the one night we were there. Good meal, and only 2 other couples in the restaurant for dinner on a Tuesday night, which is kind of unnerving.
