This is a calm and peaceful hotel near to the Airport. Friendly staff, good food. They have many restaurants at different locations in the hotel. Big conference facilities. Rooms are nice and clean. We stayed in a cottage style room which was large enough in size. They helped us hire a taxi to the Lion's park and Nelson Mandela square... More

My colleague and I attended a conference for 3 and half days on 28th Feb 2014. The restaurant close to reception was good and the one on the other side (Kiewet) was also good. The huge one close to the O.R. Tambo Conference room needs to be more organized. The rate was good the rooms were good.

Good staff, well-maintained grounds. The rooms are fine. A large place and close to shopping. We stayed there for a conference of over 300 participants and they handled the group well. The buffet food that was served was acceptable but it was still buffet food.

I was due at the Birchwood Hotel to attend a conference, where I greeted by an array of friendly welcoming staff who dirested me in the right direction. The conference venues were well maintained, whilst the teas, coffees and snacks lived up to expectation of such a venue. I then inquired about over night accommodation from the reception staff, which... More

I can't say anything about the Birchwood as a pure hotel. As a conference venue it is excellent with small to large venues, attentive and friendly staff, great food (always important for the delegates) and good facilities. Book the Halal lunch for no other reason that Auntie Fatima makes great tasting food.

This is by far one of the most dreadful places I have stayed on this planet and it is only right that people get the chance to learn more about this “Hotel” before they book it. The complex is not in a very good part of Joburg, that being said what you get for your money is poor. The rooms... More
