Whether you're staying for one night or an entire week, Relais & Châteaux accredited, Athol Place is the ideal retreat within the buzzing metropolis of Johannesburg. It is located in the trendy Sandton area, home to the business elite and an array of shopping malls and entertainment centres. If you want to escape the hubbub, relax in the lush gardens or steal a few winks on a deckchair beside the swimming pool. If the previous alternatives don't appeal to you then why not quench your thirst at the bar? Or perhaps you'd prefer a nightcap beside the fireplace on a cool winter evening. The joy of Athol Place is that it presents spaces and hideaways for any weather and any time of day. And now let's address one of our all-time favourite topics: food. The resident chef offers a melange of local and international flavours which can be enjoyed in the elegant dining area or outside beneath the trees.
Each of Athol Place's spacious suites are individually decorated to provide a boutique feel which is absent from larger hotel chains. There are five superior suites, four deluxe suites and one mini deluxe suite, each with double doors leading onto a private balcony. But the room's winning attributes don't end there... each is blessed with an en-suite bathroom with bath, shower and double vanity and other facilities as well as underfloor heating, air-conditioning, flat-screen television with satellite, complimentary wireless internet, telephone and docking station, electronic safe, minibar and hairdryer. There is also a writing desk, lounge chairs and sofa, as well as 24-hour security around the hotel for your peace of mind. Children are more than welcome.
Putting the property's superior facilities aside, Athol Place's best quality is that guests have the advantage of being within the corporate pulse and shopping hive of the city without saccrificing on the tranquility and peace to be found within its grounds.
