Situated a short walk for the terminal, it's a welcome sight after a long haul flight. The checking in process was quick and efficient, with a free welcome drink available at reception. The rooms are compact but very comfortable and it was nice to be able to soak in a bath after a long journey. Drinks by the pool are... More

We have been to hotels in the past where I have refused to stay in the room because of the black and horrid shower spray. It is this that causes legionnaires desease. I was disappointed with the half... More

The hotel is several miles outside of the airport. So, you'll pay for a shuttle... per person... from and back to the airport. The hotel is in a pretty sketchy part of town... I did not feel safe. There is no elevator. We had been traveling for weeks and had considerable luggage. Good luck with that! You will get help... More

Thank you for the review. We’re sorry you did not enjoy your stay. Please be aware that we do have a hotel located within the O R Tambo airport precinct – this may suit you better as it is within easy walking distance of the terminals. We will , however, look into all of the matters you have raised. More

Having missed the last flight on a Saturday night, the covered walk to the hotel and the relatively cheap availability made this an excellent hotel. The room was very good, it had everything, including a very welcome cup of tea. The breakfast was first rate and the service really good. There was no aircraft noise and we had a peaceful... More
