The hotel, just 4 km from the airport, has a free shuttle, which runs every half hour from and to the airport. Room basic but clean. As there is no restaurant or take away within walking distance of the hotel, we had the buffet dinner for R140, was acceptable, although we would have preferred just a light snack, which wasn’t...

A bit querky are my initial thoughts. The hotel is situated in a residential/commercial area at the end of the runway. It's not an area to go out and look for somewhere to eat. The rooms are in two separate tower blocks with open stairways so a bit cold in the winter and wet getting to and from in the... More

I'd thought this would be a decent airport hotel, but alas, not. On arrival, staff couldn't find our prepaid and confirmed reservation. It look 20 minutes to sort out before they "found it". Not a single attempt at an apology was made. The rooms are old and dirty. Bathroom was falling apart. Beds rock hard and uncomfortable. My back hurt... More

It is what I look for in an airport hotel. Reliable transportation to the airport, and ok everything else. The staff was pleasant. And one bonus was that the shuttle will also take you to the Gautrain, which makes for an easy way into the central city. Breakfast was ok, it basically was ok, but a reasonable value to the...

This hotel is handy to the airport and offers a free shuttle to the airport 24/7. It is not a modern hotel but it does the job for a night before flying home. The staff were friendly and the pizzas and drinks at the bar were good.

If the last reviewer hadn't written "pig with lipstick," I would have. Doesn't look anything like the on-line photos, Could have been interesting, with airplane-style furniture and old brick walls, but is just sad. The rooms (we had two, which were sold as one family room) stunk, as if something had been found in the bottom of an old, old... More

Don't be fooled by the website photos ... This hotel is a pig with lip stick ... 2 star at best. The bare minimum has been spent to give the illusion of decency - but don't be fooled. Paint peeling, ramshackle rooms and awful bathrooms. Unfortunately you get what you pay for.

Great airport hotel, spacious rooms at a good price with pick up from the airport every half an hour. The staff were great and ordered us take out pizza when we didn't fancy the buffet. would recommend for those needing an airport hotel

Stayed for one night only after a very long flight. Very good security arrangements as we arrived late, had to pull in first, check in and then park in a gated and attended car park. The room was on the 5th floor, spacious with a nice big bed and all mod cons. Breakfast buffet was quite good too. Enjoyable stay... More
