Reviews for The Residence
Tho this review is a tad late, we have been privileged to have spent 251 days of international travel over the past 2 1/2 years in 6 continents, 42 countries and 86 hotels/castles/ships/B&Bs/tents (Bedouin camp in the Sahara), etc.The Residence is arguably the finest, most memorable, exquisite boutiquehotel in our extensive travel experience. As he told the manger, my husband wanted to move there permanently, and has been promoting this Tiffany-like gem all over the world ever since.Am desperately trying to come up with a reason to return to make sure it wasn't a dream.
Visitor there not a resident but polite, efficient, helpful staff. The ambience... awesome.. calm, away from the hectic life and streets of jo'burg. Like being in a different world
This is a 5• ++ Hotel with fantastic staff and facilities. We did not want to leave. Highly recommended.
Most sophisticated and beautiful place, we enjoyed every moment. The food was above our expectations and the servce delivered was everything.
Beautiful setting. Quiet. Amazing villas. We had Pool Villa which looked out on the main pool and also had private lounges and pool. Including large livingroom with fireplace. AMAZING!. OH wait, the entire staff is super friendly and helpful.
A sperb Lunch, as always. Impeccable Service..Stunning Hotel.There is simply nothing to fault. Th BEST!
Really great establishment. Well run. Very friendly. Stunning restaurant with superb food. Will definitely be back.
It was a wonderful night, Wayne was excellent. He was smiling, friendly and full of respect. Knowledgeable with the menu and advising where necessary. Love people and understanding our birthday demands.
Beautiful setting coupled with fantastic food and great service, what more could you ask for.The decor is a tasteful upmarket African theme, with a very close eye on detail. Walking into the hotel is a journey, they've found a way to make you feel as though you're not in the city anymore. The service of their staff is absolutely impeccable. The quality of the food is top notch, they never disappoint me and I'm very hard to please. Their restaurant remains to be my favourite in Jhb to date.
What a divine hidden gem!Had a delightful trio carpaccio starter (warthog, crocodile & ostrich) and oysters. Ostrich and pork belly as mains were delicious. Portions are small, so definitely add a side dish or two.Service is a bit slow, so expect a wait, but it's worth it. Would recommend a palette cleanser after the starters to improve the food experience. Rich complimentary dessert truffles were amazing.Live piano, antique decor and the fountain whispers make for a perfect romantic dining experience.
Beautiful setting coupled with fantastic good and great service, what more could you ask for.
