Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff Johannesburg

Keri McMenamin

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

It is a wonderful hotel, our room was at the top of the cliff and we had great views, that evening we had dinner in the hotel and sat and watched the most amazing lightening storm. On reflection it would have been nice to have 2 nights here just to rest up and chill out.

The most beautiful accommodation was, of course, the Westcliff. The rooms were amazing and HUGE! We made good use of the infinity pool and gym to work off the extra calories gained at Narina. They went our of their way to ensure we had a lovely stay . They immediately noticed a poorly wrapped souvenir that George was carrying and had it "bubble" wrapped for us without delay.
