Westcliff Hotel, Johannesburg

Now HERE is a killer deal:

Special Internet Rates

The Westcliff introduces new Internet only advance booking discounts:

R795 room only for bookings 30 days in advance or more

R895 room only for bookings made between 21 and 30 days in advance

R995 room only for bookings made between 7 and 21 days in advance

- Full pre-payment with a credit card, no refunds, cancellations or changes
- Valid for a minimum stay of two nights, in a standard room (back facing, no view)

Please book using the online form or contact reservations directly at:

Tel: +27 (0)11 646 2400
Fax: +27 (0)11 646 3500
Email: [email protected]

Please mention that you want to book the Internet Advance Special

Using today's exchange rates, that translates into a rate of $128 per night for a 2 night stay. This is one of the finest hotels in Joburg, and is 1/3 the price of the Michelangelo, for example. Unless I am mistaken, this is NOT a per person price, but rather the price for the room.

However, in the event that it is a pp rate, there is another special that is for 1,240 per couple per night ($200 per couple, using today's 6.20 Rand to 1 USD exchange).

Absolutely Affordable
This absolutely affordable offer includes one night's king-bedded accommodation in one of the hotel's fabulously appointed standard rooms, complete with thick terry bath sheets and robes and deluxe Molton Brown amenities.

This special offer is priced at R 1240 per couple per night and is available from 1 January to 30 December 2005. Kindly note that all reservations made on this offer are subject to a 100% Cancellation penalty from the time of booking.

Now, would somebody like to accuse me of blatantly advertising? GRRRRRRR!

I gave the Westcliff a quick call. That's correct, those "room only" rates are for one or two persons.

Thanks for the clarification. It is really an unbelievable deal to be able to stay at the 5* Westcliff for what amounts to $128 USD per night with the current exchange rate.

Wow! I wish I knew when I'd next be in Jo'burg, I'd take advantage of this in a minute! (Yes, me, this board's penny-pinchingest traveler!!)

Keep us apprised, Roccco, when something like this comes along again.

I've just found a rate at the Westcliff on Cheaptickets for slightly more than the Special Internet Rates and slightly less than the Absolutely Affordable rates available directly from the Westcliff.

The only reason to be interested in this rate vs. the special internet rate directly from the Westcliff is that there isn't a two night minimum on the Cheaptickets rate. It includes breakfast. It also requires pre-payment.
