Today we are reviewing The Westcliff Conference Venue in Sandton. Situated on a cliffside in the tranquil area of historic Westcliff, this conference venue offers visitors a rural atmosphere right in the middle of Sandton, Johannesburg’s new business hub. The venue’s swimming pool and private terraces looks out over the adjacent zoological gardens where animals can often be spotted.
The venue is situated on a Cliffside, allowing for resort-style design with stunning panoramic views of Johannesburg’s tree-filled northern suburbs. The Westcliff Conference Venue is conveniently located only 22km from the O.R.Tambo International Airport and within easy reach of several shopping malls. A team of resident gardeners maintain the magnificently manicured gardens of The Westcliff Conference Venue. The gardens abound with beautiful roses, flowerbeds and lush greenery interspersed with cobbled pathways, courtyards and water features.
The events team at The Westcliff will ensure that your function, conference or business meeting at the venue runs smoothly. There is a variety of venues which can be tailored according to your need. Each of the venues is equipped to handle a wide variety of events. The Jacaranda Hill Conference Centre is a self-contained, multi-tiered building with state-of-the-art catering facilities that can seat up 120 people in a banquet set up and up to 200 people for a cocktail reception. The venue also has several smaller rooms for business meetings.

The Westcliff Hotel is currently actively involved in three local charities, The Hope School for Physically Disabled Children, The Princess Alice Adoption Home and the Zoo Lake Users Committee. They also support the Hotels Housing Trust which loans money donated by hotel guests to housing projects for the homeless. This trust currently supports the Habitat for Humanity project which enables local and international volunteers to help build houses for South Africans who have previously lacked adequate shelter for their families.
In 2008, The Westcliff started its own Worm Farm, with all leftover food scraps and organic matter fed to special earthworms. The food scraps and organic matter are processed by the earthworms turning it into fertiliser. The conference venue replaced all candescent globes with energy-saving bulbs and has also upgraded the heater pumps for all four swimming pools on the estate with the latest technology.
