I like the fans inside the room”

Most hotel rooms don’t have fans (to those who feel cold) but the room I got has one. Makes my room tolerably cool. Location’s 30 minutes away from Joburg but there’s a nearby mall that you can check out for items that you’d like to bring home!

Position to airport, closeness to family, comfort

The staff were exceptionally friendly always welcoming us with use of our name. We stayed on three different occasions during our visit to SA. On the third stay of a week we were provided with an upgrade to a suite at no expense. Many thanks to the staff for a very pleasant stay.

A wonderful stay at The Lakes Hotel”

The location; the rooms and the food

Our stay at The Lakes Hotel was great. The rooms were spacious and clean (with extra blankets for those cold nights)with their own private balconies and bathrooms (towels provided). We were spoilt for choice for breakfast as there were a buffet of hot and cold meals available (cereals; yogurts; cut fruit; bacon; eggs; sausages; juices; coffee; etc) Will definitely go back :-) Thanks to the staff and management for making our stay an awesome one.

A quiet couple of nights away from the busy world.”

The staff were friendly but not intrusive, the room and decor was modern with a feeling of the old world charm, I asked for a romantic touch they gave us petals on the bed.

What a lovely surprise to find such a gem in the heart of Benoni. We weren't expecting the luxury and charm when we booked great value for money. My fiancée is so impressed is going to look into the conference facilities and has told everyone about the hotel. If I had to fault anything it would be the cost of the room service charged in cash. Would I recommend it, yes have done and will continue. We were disappointed when we tried to book at sort notice and they were full.

I tried to get an answer to my question if they would send a shuttle service, I didnt get an answer. When the reception at Cape Town Hotel called them, they told us on sunday there is no shuttle but then they called back inbetween 5 minutes and I got a shuttle. The romms were clean, but there was no !!! shower in the bathroom, you only could have a bath. Hairdryer is missing. No bar was open and no possibility to buy something to drink. Maybe thats a matter of staying ther in low season, because the terrace you can sit on has a nice view to the lake. Hotel looks nice. And I felt safe.
