The Ascot Hotel has an iconic past. Most people who remember Norwood back in the day, have very fond memories of the brand. A place where those looking for culture and fun, would mingle and enjoy live music at an exclusive Supper Club on the upper level of the hotel. As with any historical venue it has seen a number of changes, both good and bad, but ultimately today the Ascot hotel has been true to its past offerings of good food, good service and great musical entertainment.
With a new face-lift and the word “boutique” between the name Ascot Hotel – this unique tourism graded 4 star venue offers a unique home away from home experience.
The downstairs restaurant and bar offers the finest whiskeys, gins and cocktails and a delicious Bistro menu serves breakfast, lunch and dinner (to both in-house and outside guests).
To Andre and his wonderful team, a big thank you for making sure our farewell party was incredible. I have worked in events for many years with various vendors and I have never come across such a great venue with staff so amazing that go the extra mile, the restaurant was set up beautifully, the staff were attentive, helpful and friendly, even our guests couldn’t stop complimenting venue and staff, I highly recommend the Ascot hotel venue for events for 60 guests and below, you wont be disappointed 🙂 A big thank you 🙂
We booked at The Ascot Hotel at the last minute after being without electricity at home for 2 days. The process was easy and efficient. Every single staff member that we dealt with went out of their way to be friendly, helpful and make us feel at home. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
What an amazing experience! Everyone from staff to the GM, treated me like VIP! Love this hotel. Will only stay here while in Jo’burg. Close to everything I needed. A walking distance to the mall, restaurants, massage places and hair/nail salons.
Very nice hotel. Value for the money. Hotel is well located on the grand avenue with nice restaurants around and shopping malls all within reach. The area is relatively safe compare to others in Johannesburg. Check in was fantastic and the breakfast was okay. I will recommend hotel for any visitor
Arriving at the hotel before 2pm was absolutely no problem. They welcomed me in and were all very friendly, my room was ready and I could immediately move in. The room quite modern, a very comfortable bed, fully stocked mini bar, a guide for the hotels options and tv channels. In the bathroom I found clean towels and soaps/shampoo. My room also contained a balcony, the view wasn’t the nicest, parking below and the main street on the right overlooking the bars and restaurants, but personally I didn’t mind! The hotel is located in the Norwood suburb which is mostly houses. Just outside the hotel you can find a good variation of restaurants and bars. A bit further down the street are also a Spar and a Wholefoods. In the evening I returned from visiting a friend elsewhere around 9-10pm. The uber driver dropped me off a bit further and I walked the remaining distance. During the day and night I did not feel threatened or unsafe at all!
