A hotel of choice and great value for money if in Johannesburg for holiday or business. The advantages include proximity to the Airport and by extension Gautrain, constant shuttle from the Airport and clean rooms. The buffet is also delicious.

The staff members were extremely courteous,patient,helpful and approachable in resolving issues especially with my other colleagues whom were booked in the last days. The rooms looked great. The location is very convenient as it is a stone throw from the aairpoirt plus their complementary shuttle service

It was our anniversary weekend, and i was very pleased to find a complimentary bottle of champagne and some chocolates in our room on arrival. We were also upgraded to a nicer room,... More

We had a quick overnight while waiting to board our international flight. Firstly, the shuttle service is excellent and all pressure is taken off you when you get to the hotel. Service was fast, friendly and prompt and the children were welcomed and played with, which was a pleasant surprise given the upmarket appearance and dress of staff. The hotel... More
