Ten Bompas5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This is one of my very favorite hotels we've stayed at in many months. We have been nomads for five years now, staying at nice hotels (and some not so nice) all over the world. This would be in the very top two or three percent of all the places we've stayed during those years. What did I love? A small bottle of champagne on ice delivered our first night. A beautiful fireplace where they made a lovely fire for us. Free wine and even hard liquor in the room. Beautiful grounds where I spent two afternoons relaxed and reading. Lovely staff. Absolutely great food wonderfully prepared. Helpful with arrangements for going out to dinner. A steam shower and a very comfy bathtub. The list goes on and on. I'm not the biggest fan of going to Johannesburg - there's not a lot to do there for tourists - but Ten Bompas is reason enough to spend a few days. I only wish we'd scheduled more time there!
Hotel is older but clean and generally well kept; used our SPG points for a free one night stay during recent layover. Enjoyed a large suite and helpful staff, which provided recommendations for activities to do during our short time in J’berg. Also had a delicious dinner at the hotel restaurant.
After the long ride down from Europe, it’s hard to imagine a better place than Ten Bompas to regroup in Johannesburg. Originally booked as a one night stop over enroute to Cape Town, we ended up extending our stay simply because the hotel and staff exceeded our every expectation. Where to begin, beautiful setting, inspired cuisine, accommodating staff, free laundry and minibar, spacious suites, location... suffice it to say that Ten Bompas, a part of the Starwood Luxury Collection program, has it all and it’s a great place to unwind for a few days when traveling across South Africa. Highly recommend.
This is not a hotel in the true sense of the word it is more like an apartment in a hotel.You do not stay in a room.The apartment has a small portal,a sitting room,a bedroom a bathroom and a balcony reached through sliding doors from both living- and bed room.The apartment has a complimentary bar,every drink free and replenished regularly,a fireplace,a cd player,a flat screen tv with its own decoder,a clock radio,ample space,a shower(converts into a steam bath!)a bath and 2 basins.The bed is low wide and very comfortable,the linen crisp and clean. I found such luxury only once before in South Africa,at a lodge in the Eastern Cape. The staff friendly and very efficient.Washing is done quickly neat and....also free!!! The food is of a high quality actually fine dining.Fine to such an extent that some of the dishes served were hardly recognisable as those on the menu!(Maybe I am just not a foody).Wine is paired.For this you pay,quite expensive I would say.Tasty,but not worth the hefty price.But everything considered still worth the experience. And to have had the privilege of staying at Ten Bompas was indeed an experience to remember. The garden is well tended to except for the green water in the pool,also to be excused. A hotel to be on the bucket list.
Very classy hotel, modern restaurant with very fusion menu, very nice rooms with fireplace, great service and location, has nice garden and small conference facilities. Definitely recommend for biz travellers or even families, some rooms have balcony and some have access to small courtyard so very quaint and relaxed and quiet
All employees in the hotel are welcoming, try to server you as much as they can. Only suites are available which are spacious, clean with good furniture, toilet and path room are hygienic with Sauna. All suites have extension to balcony. The food being served there is delicious and variable. Checking in and out is fast. As an SPG member I enjoyed staying at this hotel.
My friend and I stayed in this hotel 3 nights, before and after visiting Kruger National Park. We had a spacious suite, amazing bathroom with sauna and balcony. We met with a very friendly staff like Fortune and Pat who offered us a wonderful breakfast. Yogurt with cereal and fruits, scrambled eggs, bean, potatoes, avocado and cocktail juice. Swimming pool is nice and small. Garden is the time to listen to the birds. The area is closed to Hyde Park Corner and many other shops. We enjoyed our stay in Ten Bompas. Thank you all.
With local touches, this boutique property provides an outstanding quite and secure accommodation and outstanding meals. My room/suite was comfortably appointed with furniture, tasteful artwork, a great aroma, real wood fireplace and a balcony. I had breakfast and lunch there and have returned twice to the hotel hoping to be able to have dinner there but alas not in the group plans. Food was very authentic and genuine. Lots of flavours and quantity. When coming back to Joburg, I’ll be booking Ten Bompas!
Following a safari, a friend and I recently stayed in separate suites at Ten Bompas. Each of the rooms is expertly designed and lovely; we arrived to a chilled bottle of bubbly and fruit; and the steam shower was a deeply appreciated amenity following safari. Each evening, staff delivered an amuse bouche courtesy of the hotel chef. We enjoyed a delicious meal at the Winehouse restaurant our first night there. Our following days were filled with guided day trips, which the hotel staff graciously worked with me to coordinate prior to our arrival. We each ordered room service breakfast every morning from a menu with many offerings at very affordable price. Additional evenings were enjoyed on our oversize patio deck; we went to the corner on Jan Smits and purchased nosh from Fournas and wine from the adjacent wine shop...And, we liked relaxing in the gorgeous garden/pool area. The whole feel is much like staying is the guest suite of a private home (which this building was in a former life). The service is friendly and accommodating. This is the kind of place I preferred to stay when I worked in a particular city for extended days, but is equally appropriate for short visit, assuming you understand the geography of Jo'Burg and that you will need to use private transport (which is true for pretty much any place).
Stayed at Ten Bompas twice in the last two years. Beautiful location in the heart of Dunkeld, close to major points of interest in Johannesburg. All suite boutique hotel with greatest attention to detail in every respect. Fantastic restaurant with small but delicious and refined menu. Outstanding wine list. Quiet with a lush garden. Beautiful decor and room design (suites 5 and 9). Most importantly, the service is truly outstanding - friendly, professional, helpful. Easily beats any five star hotel I know.
