The Lido Hotel in Johannesburg is a classic Art Deco Style building that dates back as far as the 1930′s. The design of the hotel was inspired by the Queen’s visit to South Africa by steam boat.
The name LIDO means “deck of a ship” used as a public place of recreation.
The Hotel is well placed in the Kliprivier conservancy and Khoisan land.
This historically protected building now boasts 24 rooms, each en suite with diva baths and Indian rock tiled bathroom walls.
The LIDO Hotel has conference and events facilities and can host from 50-350 guests for weddings or special functions and has its own chapel. The banquet hall is still fitted with the original spring loaded wooden dance floor.
The unique Lapa offers an upper and lower level united by an open fireplace and dance area which can accommodate up to 400 people.
LIDO Bottle Store, in the 1930′s, has now been converted into a beautiful Chapel sure to generate many romantic wedding memories.
The LIDO Hotel was the original trading post, and is still a popular stopover for people travelling between the North, East and South.
