The hotel happens to be the first Holiday Inn property in South Africa recognised as a Heritage site, with national monument status.
The hotel dates back to 1895 and is known for its picturesque property, a fitness centre, outdoor pool and business centre. The four-acre garden includes tranquil Koi ponds that cascade through flowing fountains beside 150-year old trees.
The elaborate staircase greets guest in the plush, wood-panelled reception area and offers a warm welcome. The hotel is designed as a neo-queen Anne style suburban villa, by Frank Emley.
The hotel boasts 152 well-appointed bedrooms, including a variety of suites. The décor combines historic charm with modern amenities. Wooden-panelling and pressed ceilings are part of the lounge area which allows guests to unwind over a crackling fire.
Milner’s Restaurant has a selection of a la carte options and a generous buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The hotel also boasts The Pound & Penny, an English-style pub, which offers traditional fare.
You can relax and enjoy beautiful gardens or the large outdoor pool in the property. The gymnasium boasts both a ladies and gents steam room.
Situated just a 25-minute drive from OR Tambo International airport, the hotel is located close to the Central Business Districts of Johannesburg and Sandton and easily accessible to corporate offices, universities, hospitals and major highways.
The Ballroom can house a maximum of 240 people in banquet style seating while alternative meeting spaces can accommodate small groups from as few as eight people in a boardroom setup to a couple of hundred people in one of the eleven conference rooms.
Guests are now being provided with hotel’s opening special offer which includes a 30 per cent off on the standard rates.
