To say that this place has good service is an understatement. They went above and beyond to assist with our requests. They facilitated transportation and even arranged for early breakfast. The residence truly exceeded our expectations.

        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.

        An oasis of calm and luxury”
        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.

        Beautifully-designed place with bags of character, wonderful staff & thoroughly luxurious services. ”
        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!

        Fabulous Boutigue Hotel with exceptional service”
        Exclusive and secure location.
        Can I say fabulous again...this was by far the best hotel that I have been too and I stay at five star hotels...but the service and grounds were awesome. I think there are 10 rooms so very intimate. The room(suite?)I stayed in had a private outdoor space that included shower, hot tub, lounge area and table and chars that we had breakfast the next morning. The room has a fireplace and a beautiful spa bathroom with soaking tub for two...very romantic...I will definitely return on my next trip to South Africa. I forgot to say that the airport transfer is in a old Rolls Royce...can you say class...family owned and operated hotel.

        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

        The Residence is a magnificent retreat that pampers every sense. Every detail is painstakingly attended to, from the appointments in each room (and I experienced two different rooms) to the care of the staff to the facilities and the food. The only area that needs improvement is the on site workout room--though that also is addressed as The Residence has a relationship with a full service gym nearby. No visit to Johannesburg will feel complete without a stay at The Residence.

        We spent one night at this fabulous boutique hotel after traveling from San Francisco. We were completely blown away by this incredible hotel, which felt like we were guests in a well- appointed private home. The attention to detail, the service, the room, the food were all a "10". I would highly recommend this lovely, small, hotel to anyone traveling to JoBerg and we will stay here again in the future.
