A positive vibe at Capital on the Park

Capital on the Park

Capital on The Park, located at 101 Katherine Street, Sandton, brands itself as a “business resort with a cosmopolitan lifestyle”. These are very fancy words but they perfectly describe this wonderful hotel.

Despite being at the heart of the most wealthy business district in the country, Capital on the Park, feels like a resort hotel.

The foyer is expansive thanks to the open plan layout.   From the professionally manned reception desk you can cast your eye through the lounge, past the bar come espresso station to the dining room.

Positively Capital on the Park

The rear part of this massive room opens onto a north facing pool deck more attuned to a tropical resort than an urban jungle.

The high ceiling with interesting lighting, contemporary décor and ample natural light make the Capital on the Park spacious and bright.

Everything about this hotel conveys positivity. The functionality of the hotel flows so easily. The waiters, the cleaners and the management all have a positive attitude and seem to pre-empt your next question with an answer.

Safe and secure

The hotel runs on card keys. You use your card to operate the elevator and open your bedroom door. You won’t be able to reach your room, let alone get in, with your card key.

The suite attired security team can easily be mistaken for businessmen except that they are so helpful and friendly that you may then mistake them for hotel staff.

Rooms and facilities at Capital on the Park

My bedroom suite was fantastic. Everything I could need as a businessman was on hand – desk, wi-fi and ample electrical plugs for charging all my necessary electrical gadgetry. And when I was done working, the lounge came with a huge sofa and a TV. My very comfortable bedroom had its own TV too. The bathroom was spacious and sparkling.

Sleep comfortably

The hotel is packed with facilities including a gym, spa, kids play area, interior and exterior bar and a variety of conference facilities.

I loved staying at this hotel and will, in all likelihood, return very soon.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.

Adventure!

You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
