Nice hotel near the ORTambo airport. Ideal for a 1 night stay. It has a really good buffet dinner for an average of 30$usd, but rooms are small and noisy.

We stayed in this hotel for one night on route to Botswana. The hotel provides a good shuttle service to and from OR Tambo airport. There is twenty four hour reception and room service, so late arrivals are well catered for. The hotel provided a comfortable overnight stop and was good value for money.

Very comfortable overnight accommodations. After a long flight, relaxed on the patio and ate lunch overlooking the small pool. The lunch and breakfast were very good. Especially impressed with the staff. Because of a lack of communication from our tour guide, the front desk clerk took the initiative to investigate our departure time and had a letter delivered to our... More

The major (and pretty much only) advantage of this hotel is its proximity to the O.R. Tambo International Airport. It is good for an overnight stay. Breakfast is on the better side.

If this hotel was more honest with its ratings and stopped pretending to be a 4 star, I might have rated it better. As it was, our expectations were higher than the pretty downtrodden travelodge-esque place that we were taken to, instead of the rather grand establishment shown on the website. Its pretty close to the airport, about a 10-15... More

We spent one night here while waiting for our flight to Kruger Park. The staff were very helpful, the rooms clean and service was great. Wait at the airport for the free shuttle as it runs every half hour. The Johannesburg shuttle area is rather difficult to find but ask anyone who is wearing identification for directions and you will... More

Luckily the porters escorted us to the shuttle area. Average hotel,pleasant staff,was just OK and very slow to arrive.The rooms were small and the bathrooms quite dated... More

We stayed one night on this hotel after a long overnight flight from London via Dubai. We'd booked well in advance and new about the proximity to the flight path etc. We got the free transfer minibus in fairly good time and had a nice, if rather small room. Dinner in the evening was excellent with very good service; same... More

I will not ever stay at this hotel. After travel in true four star hotels I got accoustomed to the little details and luxuries. This hotel I would give a two star rating. After being on Safari in Botswana I was looking forward to catching some TV. The TV looked like something I had back in the 70s. There were... More
