                  Enjoyed our stay at the Winston. Rosebank is an up and coming area of Johannesburg and the hotel an oasis of calm. You either need a car or taxis to go most places, but none of the drives were very long. Staff was friendly and helpful. Gardens and terrace were lovely.roomswerelarge andwell appointed (although they desperately need to install a towel bar in the bath). Do Be aware though that the offered guided tour of Soweto is really a driver who will drive you to the main sites, but is not a qualified guide. We were caught out on this and disappointed at the drivers minimal knowledge that we frankly could have read in the guidebook as well.

                  This hotel was worthy of the 5 Star rating simply because of the excellent Customer Service. The spacious rooms, pool and courtyard areas were also outstanding & of 5 star quality. I think every room overlooks the pool area which is really pleasant. Jason ,the Duty Manager was exceptional with his PR .He went out of his way in assist with some personal health issues. Timothy , provided excellent service at the bar and restaurant. Unity the barista ,provided exceptional service and makes the best cappuccino in Joburg. Will stay AGAIN next time in Joburg.

                  Pool area is not safe for kids. There is no high chair available in the restaurant. Breakfast (included in the room price) does not correspond to the hotel level (claimed 5 stars). Staff is has generally inappropriate attitude. No warm welcome, no interest in guests. It leaves an impression the staff will be happiest if you left ASAP. Breakfast staff impolite and unprofessional. We haven't even finished our breakfast, in between the two mouthfuls, we've been handed the "tip-bill". No designated smoking area, so dining /having breakfast with kids did not leave us much choice. Staff and other guests were pretty ignorant in this respect. At the check out, after being asked about the feed back, we were interrupted in the middle of the sentence by a ringing telephone without any word of excuse or a hint that the person at the reception was at all interested in any word of the conversation we started.

                  We stayed at the Winston after a longer trip in a different country, as a way to decompress and transition back to the US. This is a very well run hotel, every aspect of our stay was well done. The staff is well trained, friendly and accommodating. The grounds are beautiful, as are the rooms and public areas. Everything is well maintained. We enjoyed several meals here, reasonably priced, high quality and delicious. The breakfast is excellent, with a number of choices plus a buffet. The bar has a good selection and is a cozy place to enjoy time with friends. It is within easy walking distance of the train station and a number of restaurants and stores. Highly recommend this hotel.

                  Lovely traditional English-style boutique hotel, spacious clean rooms overlooking central courtyard with sparkling pool. We stayed in a deluxe 1st floor room. Friendly staff and lovely helpful hotel owner. Food in the hotel restaurant is good and breakfast is varied and plentiful. We stayed twice for 1 night each time inbetween flights, it's about 25-40 mins from the airport, the hotel can arrange transfers at extra cost or it's located about 5-7 mins walk from a gautrain stop. There is a shopping centre and a market for African souvenirs within 7-10 mins walk but not much else nearby as far as we could see although we weren't there very long. There is construction going on next door at the moment but it was not disruptive to our stay and we had a room on the opposite side to the construction. I would recommend this hotel.

Also booked a private transfer to airport I told him terminal B he said A it was wrong, I was very mad since it was expensive and I gave him a nice tip! Even with the problems I would return.
