The hotel and grounds are a refreshing change from the blocks that typify most modern hotels and it's nice to be able to walk around the grounds . There are a number of restaurants in and around the grounds and the full buffet breakfast is well... More

I've recently spent 5 days at the Birchwood Hotel, where I've run two back-to-back training seminars. I'm very impressed with their level of organization and can-do attitude, and the quality of their offering. By this I mean the conference rooms, the attendant catering, the restaurants and the accommodation. The location is excellent, close to the OR Tambo airport and a... More

Spent one night here and found it to be totally unsatisfactory. Issues: the safe would not work (had to be replaced), there was no running water at all (eventually someone came and turned it on from outside), the sink wouldn't drain (disgusting green slimy water backed up), the toilet "self-flushed" all night long, the shower was not much more than...

The Birchwood hotel has some very good conference facilities that can accommodate groups of all sizes. However the hotel rooms themselves are somewhat lacking at least in the section I stayed in. The hotel itself looks like it was originally a motel with little bungalow style rooms off of roadways. In my room the shower was so close to the... More

Stayed at the Birchwood for one night after flying in late. Took the shuttle from the airport (they have a little shuttle waiting room on the far side of the Intercontinental hotel at the airport), check in was easy, and the room was clean and adequate.
