Traveller Reviews

  • The staff at the Westcliff welcomed us like part of their family, which was really wonderful, the check-in was speedy especially given the long flight we’d just come off all we wanted to was get to our room, shower and refresh ? The room was lovely, if a little dated now, but I understand that the hotel has just been taken over by new owners and they will be modernizing the rooms in phases. The breakfasts were delish and views over JHB from the breakfast room was spectacular, the staff at all of the restaurant/ bars were very attentive and went out of their way to accommodate requests where possible. The Spa staff were equally as wonderful, very much a personal experience, the products that they use were Africology which gave the holiday that African feel from the start! I used the gym whilst I was there and found it more than adequate, running machines, bikes and free weights, again with a spectacular view

  • Westcliff Hotel was perfect! We got an upgrade to a beautiful junior suite (I guess you have something to do with that! :). The food was excellent and the service was so kind.

  • The Westcliff - was truly top notch. We did nothing but hang out by the pool, use the gym, nap and eat. The food was exceptional and the service great.

    Corinne Helman, May 2010
  • The Westcliff was only a very brief stay and unfortunately because of that we couldn't use it's facilities to the full, however, it is a top class hotel with some homely touches, making it feel very comfortable.
