        Great location and amazing staff”

        It was such a pleasure to check into this hotel in Bedfordview Johannesburg . Everybody from the top management to the cleaning staff, to the staff at the breakfast station were extremely friendly and ever obliging. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Breakfast was such a pleasure as there is an inside outside area to sit at close to the pool. Definitely and highly recommended for anyone looking for a room in Bedfordview area.

        Amazing”

        Absolutely amazing place with some exceptional customer service from everyone in the building. Most importantly, it's extremely clean, frames are all aligned, no dirty spots on the carpet, fresh breeze, lovely pool area and a cute coffee shop/cafe. It's also opposite the shopping centre.

        A very pleasant stay”

        The reception staff were very welcoming and helped us in getting to our room earlier than usual (due to us driving up from Durban and needing to freshen up for a wedding. They were quick to help and assist and made me feel at ease. I didn't feel like it was going to be a problem to ask for anything or as if they would get annoyed with me for requesting something. The only discomfort we had was the aircon in the room hitting directly on our heads in the beds while we slept. It was desperately hot so it was either throbbing heads and sinuses or trying to sleep in the evening heat. Other than that, there honestly was nothing to complain about. I actually want to travel more to jhb. I know where I'll be bookin my next stay. Thank you to the staff for an overall fantastic stay Mr Archary

        Thanks to the location of the Nicol we were very close to Eastgate mall and surrounded by a wide variety of restaurants. The breakfasts provided with our stay was truly value for money
