The Westcliff Hotel is located in Johannesburg’s most select historic residential suburb of Westcliff. It occupies a pleasant Orange Grove quartzite hillside site of tumbling landscaped gardens overlooking the Zoological Gardens with panoramic views over Johannesburg’s leafy northern suburbs. The environs are green and leafy, as are the hotel’s superbly tended gardens. Rose gardens complement the restful fountains as one meanders through the hotel’s cobbled paths and tranquil courtyards.
 

As with the sister Orient-Express Hotel establishment in Cape Town - the Mount Nelson - the Westcliff hotel prides itself on a pedigree of impeccable service and business facilities. Its proximity to the airport and commercial thoroughfares of Johannesburg and Sandton make it a convenient yet discerning stayover in Johannesburg; South Africa’s business capital and entrepreneurial cosmopolitan centre.

 

The Westcliff is conveniently located near the city’s cultural and retail centres, yet is set apart as a haven of calm. The development of Johannesburg dates back to the 1886 gold rush when desirable suburbs such as Westcliff were established by mining magnates and Rand lords who commissioned mansions on these elevated sites.

 
 

Fine dining is to be enjoyed at the two highly rated in-house restaurants; The Loggia and La Belle Terasse, in addition to traditional afternoon high tea in the Conservatory. The international cuisine is prepared with an assured blending of fusion-South African flavours. It is possible to dine in one’s room or partake of the popular Sunday brunches. The Polo Bar and Terrace is popular for aperitifs and nightcaps.


The Botanica spa offers Kahuna, aromatherapy, reflexology and hot-stone treatments and rassoul mud body wraps. Recreational activities include dipping in either the plunge pools or one of the two heated infinity pools, from where one can look down over the zoo’s elephants from the pool’s edge, the so-called ‘safari-swim!’ You can play tennis (floodlit at night), use the gymnasium or the golf practice net in preparation for one of many rated courses in the vicinity. The hotel has a particular appeal to visiting business people with access to the airport and CBD centres. The Business Wing has 30 guest rooms supported by the innovative concept of ‘IT butlers’ while the Business Lounge offers refreshments and a private pool terrace.

Accommodation comprises various categories of rooms, ranging up to the Presidential Penthouse Suite. 48 Luxury Rooms are spacious with twin or king-sized beds. Most of the rooms have a private balcony overlooking either the Zoological Gardens or one of the enticing courtyards. Of 15 Studio Rooms most have a private balcony or patio that overlook the lush gardens or pool terrace. The airy Junior Suites are especially suitable for families with children as they are furnished with an additional bed. Four Luxury 1-bedroom suites are extremely spacious with separate lounges and writing desks ideal for a private conference. The exclusive 110 square metre Presidential Penthouse Suite has an extensive terrace above the hotel’s infinity pool with views beyond to the Magaliesberg Mountains. There is a dining area, lounge with fireplace and marble vestibule. It is configured to be used as either a one or two bedroom suite and is served by a dedicated butler.
