Slap bang in the middle of Sandton, the Quartermain is a more charming version of it’s sibling property, The Falstaff. The grandiose building is inspired by the British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, and takes his attachment to the country house and updates and transforms it to a contemporary South African style. The 102 rooms and two suites are warm and genteel in character, further expanding the country house theme. Stuffed to the gunnels with modcons, the rooms are perfect for the upscale business traveller. Charming gardens surround the swimming pool and a shaded courtyard provides respite from the heat of the African sun. There is a restaurant on the premisis but to be frank it would be better to explore a little further afield, after all the hotel is not far from the central hub of Sandton and all the attendant
bars and restaurants.
