We had an absolutely amazing stay! We spent our first night in the Westcliff and this was by far on par if not a better experience for us. We will definitely be back here as a first choice. Thank you so much!

The room was exquisite, magnificent, and beautiful! The bed extremely comfortable, the bath tub, shower, and wash basin, are beautiful and functional. The breakfast in the mornings were delicious! The grounds are wonderfully appointed with flowers, plants and trees. Taxi rides to Mandela Square, or public rail transportation, were from 50 to 150 Rand, the less expensive a service Henrico suggested. I love this place!

Henrico greeted us at the entrance, showed us around. Located not too far off William Nicol & Sandton Dr, Festina Lente was just what I needed - a real sanctuary of tranquility combined with ambience fueled through the exquisite decor of the units. It was an experience and I'll be back to try out all the other units!

Amazing as always. This is my third time with Henrico, and it's always been a top experience. The immaculate and succulent breakfast is always a hit with me!

This is my second time at Festina Leste, and I'm definitively coming for more. The. Service is perfect... So detailed oriented. The breakfast is very very nice, especially if you have a sophisticated tooth. And the decor of the place hardly matched in any airbnb I've ever stayed in. Highly recommend!
