Top notch, as expected from Four Seasons. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Rooms are superb, very spacious, clean and modern. Restaurants are excellent. Highly recommended. Go for the Week End Brunch!

Four Seasons at its best. Must say we were very skeptical before our trip as reviews on trip advisor was mixed, but must say our stay was superb. Having landed at 7 am, was promptly picked by the hotel limo. Got our room by 8.30 am which was a plus plus. An early check in that too 4 hours before check in time on a Good Friday was a real treat for us post a long flight from Singapore. The hotel has an excellent bar, morning breakfast area and a lovely dinner venue. We spent the entire day the property and must say the service of the staff was top notch. We took a couples spa which was part of our room package and was delighted by the experience.

I recently stayed st this property on a short layover in Johannesburg. Good service and attentive front desk staff awaits at the Four Seasons West Cliff. The services at the hotel’s spa was also very good. After a long journey, a massage was a good way to unwind. Next to the spa is the gym, which is small but well equipped and available 24 hours. We had dinner at the View restaurant. The service was slow due to large party in the dining room. Management apologised and offered us a bottle of wine. The service at breakfast was remarkably better. I found the rooms at the hotel to be dated and in need of refurbishment. You can especially see this in the bathroom.

This place is pretty much faultless. Everything worked with breathtaking efficiency, and without exception the staff were terrific; friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and efficient. Check-in and check-out was a breeze, as was everything else (including car parking, taking care of luggage, restaurant and spa bookings, and general advice and help). The views from the restaurants are amazing, and allowed me to see a side of Johannesburg that I didn't think existed. Service in the bar areas was also excellent, with no waiting around. Our room (804) was fabulous; large and incredibly comfortable. The amenities were also excellent, and included large bars of soap (rather than those fiddly, button-sized efforts that you get in many places). There were also USB charging ports and plug sockets to fit pretty much any country's plugs. All in all, top class. And I will definitely stay here again on my next trip down here. I'm also now looking at Four Seasons in other locations.
