Situated in Johannesburg's most exclusive residential suburb, The Westcliff's hillside setting with cascading, sculpted gardens and elegantly opulent accommodation evoke a bygone era of leisure and refinement in one of the world's most vibrant cities. On an imposing ridge, in the north of Johannesburg, sits in three acres of glorious landscaped gardens, an oasis of peace and tranquility, The Westcliff Hotel. This five-star luxurious and sophisticated hotel is easily accessible from one of the African continent's biggest and richest cities, Johannesburg.
With wealth built on gold, Johannesburg is lively, affluent and cosmopolitan, offering the visitor a tempting array of superb restaurants, elegant designer boutiques and bustling world-class shopping centers, yet it is also fresh and breezy with golf courses, botanical gardens and well-manicured parks dotted amongst its amenities. The city is the gateway to the whole of southern Africa, including the world-famous Kruger National Park.
With its Mediterranean hillside village image, landscaped gardens in a chain of picturesque 'villas', surrounded by the enticing and refreshing breeze from the nearby botanical gardens, the Westcliff Hotel offers you one of the best and finest locations for business meetings and special events.
On arrival at the hotel there is valet parking. The hotel's limousine service may be arranged to transport guests from Johannesburg International Airport and to the Rovos Rail and Blue Train embarkation points. A complimentary shuttle takes visitors to the elegant shopping districts of Sandton, Hyde Park and Rosebank.
The Westcliff Hotel is located within a fully walled Estate, which is under constant surveillance, with security patrols 24 hours per day. Enclosed parking, private room safes, large item and firearm storage are available upon request.
From its elevated position, The Westcliff Hotel enjoys spectacular views of the zoological gardens and leafy suburb below. You have the option of swimming in two large heated swimming pools and two plunge pools. Within the hotel's grounds there are also a floodlit tennis court with a resident coach, and a gym with a team of personal trainers.
Specializing in international dishes with a distinctly South African flair, The Westcliff Hotel has gained an enviable reputation for its cuisine. Elegant international cuisine complemented by an extensive wine list, silver service and a spectacular backdrop of views by day and glittering night lights have earned La Belle Terrasse the distinction of being among the city's most celebrated fine dining establishments.
The relaxed welcoming ambience of the Conservatory and Pool Terrace is superb for get-togethers, meetings or light meals, and the tempting traditional English morning and afternoon teas have become something of an institution at The Westcliff Hotel. The Polo Bar is an ideal rendezvous before dinner in La Belle Terrasse or for coffee and a nightcap afterwards.
For a more intimate setting The Westcliff Hotel offers in-room dining with full butler service where you can also enjoy a meal al fresco from the comfort of your balcony or terrace.
All of the Westcliff Hotel's spacious bedrooms are individually decorated in a plush and elegant style. They are fully air-conditioned and feature luxurious en-suite bathrooms. Most have sunny, private balconies with views of the zoological gardens or 1 of the estate's cobbled courtyards, so whether you are on business or holiday you will have a peaceful spot in which to unwind.
The Westcliff Hotel rooms and suites are comfortably furnished, and have amenities such as a digital safe, VCR player, dedicated computer and fax line, and butler station with mini-bar.
