History & Heritage

HISTORY OF THE DEVONSHIRE

The Devonshire Hotel has become one of Johannesburg's landmarks and dates back to the 1930's. The hotel is located on the Braamfontein Ridge, within close proximity to the famous Nelson Mandela Bridge. The Devonshire Hotel remains on the original site, but the building has been completely reconstructed, however, still maintaining its original character and charm. 

This city hotel offers a warm and inviting guest experience and meets the requirements of conference delegates, businessmen and sports fans.

The Devonshire Hotel is centrally located, a mere 23 kilometres from the OR Tambo Airport, or a quick drive to Sandton City Shopping Centre, Milpark Business School, University of Johannesburg or Wits University.

OVERVIEW OF AREA

The Devonshire is centrally located in Braamfontein, Johannesburg's premier civic, cultural and academic centre. The suburb is also home to a number of major multinational companies and a thriving small business sector. Braamfontein also houses Metro City, Johannesburg's City Government, the Civic Theatre, Johannesburg's largest performing arts complex and the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa's pre-eminent university.
