A gracious country manor, Amber Rose exudes warmth, welcome and luxury.  There's also a delightful emphasis on roses - from the names of the rooms and suites to the gorgeous gardens filled with lovely specimens.   If you're lucky, you'll find them in full bloom and the heady scents are something to savour.

The finishes are luxurious, elegant and every last fitting and piece of furniture has been chosen with care and love - for pleasure rather than purpose ...  beauty, rather than just plain function. 

From the lovely sprawling gardens, you can enjoy the sense of wide open spaces and lovely views - on a clear day you can see Johannesburg city centre ... and Pretoria to the north.  This sense of spaciousness follows you inside - the proportions are generous and roomy.

The lodge is situated on the slopes of Chartwell Hills, in horse country.  It's a quiet, country retreat - perfect for corporate and leisure guests wanting to be away from the bustle of the city, yet close enough to get there when the need arises.  Amber Rose is just minutes from Broadacres Shopping Centre (one of my personal favourite shopping centres - Alison), 20 minutes from Sandton City, 35 minutes from Oliver Tambo International Airport and 10 minutes from Lanseria International Airport.

Week days, you'll find mostly corporate types.  Over weekends, you'll find out-of-towners who've come for shows, special occasions and honeymooners or just those looking to escape the city for a couple of days without trekking too far.


Each suite is equipped with a TV, safe, overhead fan, heater, king or queen extra-length bed (or twin beds on request), crisp luxurious linen, radio alarm clock, hairdryer, 24hr WiFi, complimentary tea and coffee, en-suite bathrooms with bath and/or shower, double basins, luxury bathsheets, complimentary soaps, lotions and other guest amenities.

Premier Suites with air conditioning (3)

Double cupboards, north and east facing windows, a king-size extra length bed, en-suite bathroom, with bath, shower and double basins. A serene, spacious room.

The bathroom has a shower and romantic slipper bath and is open to the bedroom, adding a touch of by-gone nostalgia from the old mining days of Johannesburg. There are double cupboards and a solid mahogany writing /dressing table.

Enjoy the real country experience over-looking the Chartwell hills from the garden patio.  A lovely touch is the private, outside shower as well as an en-suite bathroom, with a corner bath.

Executive Suites with air conditioning (3)

The gold and cinnamon colourings, double cupboards, extra-length king-size bed, spacious 2-person shower and bath en-suite make you feel spoiled and pampered.

Furnished with copper and silver undertones, with en-suite bath and walk-in shower, these suites are ideal for families as the 2 rooms can adjoin without affecting each one’s privacy. King extra-length beds or single beds are offered. Under-carpet heating and air-conditioning ensure your comfort.

Luxury suites (3)

These three warm, north-facing rooms are furnished in autumn shades. Each has its own bathroom with en-suite shower. The ‘Peace’ suite has a queen bed; the ‘Harmony’ suite has a king or two single beds.

The West Wing Self Catering Apartment

The newly-finished, luxuriously furnished, self-catering apartment has 2 bedrooms, each en-suite with a fully-fitted and equipped kitchen, lounge and patio with views of the Chartwell valley. Ideal for a long stay or for a family where you may need the extra space.

Douglasdale 3-bedroomed Executive Villa

Amber Rose is now also able to offer a 3-bedroom executive villa located off-property (10 minutes away) - perfect for longer stays such as for management team or corporate relocations.

All suites are inclusive of a hearty breakfast.

Perfect for smaller groups (20 delegates boardroom or 40 delegates cinema-style), this venue is ideal for management meetings, brain-storming sessions and strategy meetings and team-building excercises - far from the madding crowds.  The peaceful country setting ensures privacy and tons of fresh air to get the creative juices flowing.   Full or half day packages are available - or longer - whatever suits your needs.  Staff will gladly help with menu planning and suggestions.

Why visit Amber Rose Country Estate
Best Features: Plenty of wide open space, a real country feeling ... just minutes away from all the big city action and attractions.

Bear In Mind: You can't walk to the corner cafe, or pop out to the local pub.  You'll need to drive wherever you want to go to.

Things to Do and See
It's close to Broadacres and the happening hub of Fourways - so there's heaps of entertainment on your doorstep.  For theatre-lovers, there's the informal Barnyard Theatre at Broadacres Centre and Pieter Toerien & il Teatro at nearby Montecasino.  The Coca-Cola dome is also just 10 mins away.  For shopaholics, there's easy access to Fourways, Clearwater, Northgate and Sandton.  Within a short drive are the Lion Park, Lion Rhino Park, Ngwena Glass centre, Maropeng (Cradle of Humankind) and Hartebeespoort Dam.
