Best Hotel I've Ever Stayed”

This hotel by aesthetics alone is amazing, but the experience is what sells. From the moment you walk through the door the goal is to make you feel at home. Moses guided us on a tour of the hotel and we fell in love. The Residence have thought about everything before you arrive. The multiple lounge rooms give a space to retreat from your room. The koi fish are beautiful and give ambience while you are dining. There are multiple complimentary drink stations throughout the hotel and a "cake of the day" for your sweet tooth. The spa services and Thuli and Queen were amazing. The room itself was great! Had a jacuzzi, walk in closet, beautiful balcony with a view of the pool and garden, and a surround sound music system with peaceful music playing. But I will never forget when I asked for late checkout (flight departed at 925pm) and they said "no problem, just stay in your room until you are ready to leave." I was shocked!I will always come back to The Residence when I'm in South Africa.

Madiba Luxury Suite

Madiba Suite - huge outdoor terrace and hot tub ”

The hotel photos simply do not do the hotel and Madiba Suite justice. From opening the door to the suite you are welcomed with a decanter of sherry kindly sat waiting for you in the suite reception area. You then pass the complimentary mini bar and the old lift which now fashions itself as a library and enter the bedroom. The pristine white sheets draped in rose petals momentarily distracts your eye from the complimentary bottle of bubbles and night time amarula. Stepping into the bathroom, the stand alone bath, his and hers wash basins and large shower are impressive but nothing compared to what waits outside. The large outdoor terrace with its ample seating, hot tub, outdoor shower and canopy day bed would put many beach clubs to shame. All this having walked through the grounds and buildings of the former Chinese embassy with the koi carp, water features and Asian plants throughout paying homage to the residences former occupants. Well worth a visit

Pool Villa
Stayed 2 nights in November 2020

Magical stay”

Hubby and I stayed The Pool Villa for 4 nights for our anniversary in Nov 2020. All Covid-19 protocols were done. The Villa was incredible, the heated private pool was gorgeous alongside the outside shower! The service was just fantastic and the staff at the hotel were wonderful. Unfortunately the owner of the spa was not the friendliest and I had a bad experience with her, quite shocking in fact. However the spa is just based at the premises and the spa therapists definitely made us feel great and provided incredible treatments. I would definitely recommend this place! Can’t wait to come back! Thanks for being awesome guys!

If I could give the service and accomodations and, well, everything 10 stars, I would. Service throughout the hotel was spectacular, but I have to give a special call-out to Emanuel in the dining room for going above and beyond. When he learned we were leaving for the airport in a few minutes and wouldn't have time for breakfast beyond coffee, he quickly packed us breakfast in to-go containers. Incredibly thoughtful!

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.

First Class”

Everyone was amazing! First class service and so accommodating . The rooms were fantastic with so may amenities right on the property. We didn’t really even need to go anywhere and it was a nice place to stay before a very long flight home.

More than the eye can see”

Looks very hidden and misleading as you drive in, but the surprise you get when you walk in, is incredible! Definitely worth taking a trip and staying with them.

Unbelievable venue. Just Perfect for wedding night. ”

Staff were sooo helpful. Room was beyond gorgeous. Whole venue feels like you are away in a romantic setting. A real hidden hiatus in the middle of joburg.

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.
