BBuilt in 1952, the Indaba Hotel was first known as the â€œLittle Rose Neath Hotelâ€™. It had a warm country house feel and consisted of a mere 14 bedrooms, a small bar and restaurant. Situated in Fourways it was considered a dayâ€™s trip from Johannesburg and was famous for its Sunday lunches.
The Hotel was well known amongst the mink and manure community. Guests would arrive on horse back and hitch their horses under a tree whilst enjoying an ice cold beer or welcomed gin and tonic accompanied by a delicious luncheon.
In the early 70s the hotel was sold to a Greek lady by the name of Madame Stetakis.
She added on a function room, known today as the Ndaba Palace. This venue was very popular for weddings and other functions. Madame Stekakis was a colourful, flamboyant and vibrant lady. She lived next to the Indaba Hotel and continued to support it for many years until her passing in 2006.
Shortly thereafter, the Hotel was sold to an American company who renamed the Hotel - The Fourways Gardens Hotel. Thereafter the land and the hotel were sold to Barclays Bank. Bob Aldsworth the CEO of Barclays Bank and Sandra van der Merwe a well known interior designer refurbished the hotel and built an additional 120 bedrooms and 22 conference rooms as well as the Auditorium.
