The disappointing matter is that some services were only done upon constant follow up. For example I only collected my laundry after follow up. Commitment of some staff is questionable and require...

This is a beautiful venue but must say I think it's over priced. Coming to the venue for a conference to find you can only buy there lunch at R 200.00 a head is madness. The take away menu don't work as the kitchen don't have time to make it. Secondly the don't want you to go buy food outside... More

I have had an opportunity to stay at a few hotels around OR Tambo airport, and of all of them Birchwood offered the most satisfying experience. The 120 and Petit restaurants staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. The grounds are just refreshing, the rooms are spacious and the front office staff very helpful.
