The Westcliff sprawls across a wooded hillside in a Tuscan manner that belies its location near the centre of Johannesburg. The view isn’t too bad either, looking out over Johannesburg Zoo – unlike many hotels that make the claim, The Westcliff really is a retreat in the city. As befits a Four Seasons hotel, she is grand and elegant; refined wooden furniture and country styling give an Edwardian feeling to the rooms, but with all the luxury of the 21st century. There is a wonderful formal dining venue, as well as a more casual restaurant and The Polo Bar, all of which make the most of the excellent views. The rooms and facilities are on different levels across the slopes, linked by gorgeous gardens and pretty paths. Add all of this together and you have one of the very best hotels in Johannesburg at your disposal.
