          Wife's birthday gift”

          We visited for one night to celebrate my wife's birthday and stayed in the suite with the private jacuzzi. The place is beautiful and the room is huge! Every luxury was there and in its place, including a complimentary birthday cake for two and some bubbly on arrival! A tranquil and beautiful facility that makes it easy to forget that you're in the city. Friendly and professional, I cannot fault anything. Thank you to The Residence. Facilities in this room include a Nespresso machine with some complimentary capsules, a gas fireplace as well as air conditioner, sun room/lounge, deck with jacuzzi and sun loungers and a table with seating for two, outside (private) showers, walk-in cupboards, and a sound system that has speakers in the room, bathroom and at the jacuzzi.

          Great choice for Johannesburg!”

          This property is excellent value for money. We booked to stay in the Penthouse, which was amazing. It comes with a very spacious terrace and hot tub, and the bed was extremely comfortable. For the price you pay, I can't recommend this place enough! We also dined in the restaurant for dinner, which was excellent, and the grounds of the hotel - the pools and tennis courts - are lovely. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating of all our requests as well.

          Our penthouse suite with roof top jacuzzi & views was stunning. Dinner was also the best we’ve had in Joburg. Staff were so helpful without being obstrusive. Gardeners tend to the gardens to ensure they are immaculately kept & everything is so beautiful to take in. Without doubt would recommend for a unique 5star boutique hotel experience whilst in Joburg, definitely worth every penny!

          A lovely Boutique Hotel in an upmarket neighborhood ! ”

          I spent one night at the Residence on transit out of Johannesburg which was a charming experience. As a solo traveller I always prefer to stay in a 5 star hotel chain which I did on arrival into J’burg but decided to experiment the Residence simply due to the high recommendation & reviews read on the travel sites ! Loved the intimacy & romance of the property with top notch five star service. My personal view is it’s over the top, loud & ostentatious.... Nevertheless it doesn’t take off the comfort, plush surroundings & the serenity.

          We stayed at the Residence as a respite between flying from London and traveling on to Zimbabwe and Botswana - and again on the return trip. The ambience of the hotel is calming, warm and welcoming. The management and staff are friendly and thoroughly professional. The quality and comfort of the rooms, the service and the food are truly worth their 5 Star rating.

          A beautiful place in Joburg, but the staff is what make it a real jewel. Wonderful warm attentive service that reminds us that Africa has hospitality to rival any other place in the world. The food was incredible but most of all what we loved is how quickly we felt at home. Only there for a day but if felt like a weekend.

          So glad we booked our stay in Johannesburg at the residence. The security around the hotel makes you feel safe, we had been warned about the high crime in the region. The room was just perfect, I wish I had more time to enjoy the pools and spa facilities but we only had one night. The food at the restaurant was amazing and the breakfast was deluxe. All the staff are professional and very helpful. I honestly can’t fault anything at all. Very relaxing stay.

          Our stay at The Residence for a couples' weekend away had all the ingredients of a truly amazing stay. Personal attention from the host and all hotel staff, an amazing suite and a beautiful hotel. Drinks were served in the piano lounge before being seated for a sumptuous dinner and again, personal attention. Not once were we asked from which room we were during our entire stay, other than at check-in. Later in the weekend we were treated to a couples spa treatment package which were worldclass and performed by skilled and friendly therapists. Well worth visiting
