An oasis in built up Boksburg, close to OT International, but well placed for travelling east. Good rooms, with pleasant garden and patios. A bit difficult to get to swimming pool. Otherwise, just what you want after a long flight and before travelling.

We have recently stayed over for three days for pleasure and visiting family. I was astounded by the decor, service and calm serenity amongst the bustle of Boksburg. All the rooms were beautifully furnished and the artwork is an absolute joy. Everywhere is interesting little corners. Birds are happily chirping amongst the trees. I feel it's extremely highly recommended for... More

Hidden jewel in Johannesburg. Very nice and tasty restaurant, very nice choice of African food. A small, but clean pool for refreshing/ swimming. Best choice for traveling the next day via OR Tambo Airport. And not at all expensivefor all offered comfort ( incl. free Wifi)

My family and I stayed here twice during layovers in Johannesburg. The hotel is in an excellent location, less than fifteen minutes from the airport. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly, and the garden-like setting was a pleasant, lovely surprise. Highly recommend it if you need a night or two near the airport.

I stayed here many times before. Very conveniently situated near ORT and excellent rooms and service. Good conference facilities. Good food (eisbein) craft beer (butchers block) and hospitality. Like many SA hotels the internet is a bit dodgy. This being a common SA problem!

This is an excellent hotel for those looking for an unique experience while waiting for an airport connection. Great room, food, and location all for a reasonable price. Nice gardens, and a good breakfast. They also do laundry at a reasonable price, and quick return.
