Room allocated seams to have been a "storeroom" emptied with a hole in the wall between the bedroom and bathroom. The carpet was so dirty that it was sticky. Delay on check in after travel even though I had a voucher.

The hotel is less than 3mins from the airport by car/bus served with round the clock free bus shuttle service. The food is brilliant and the rooms are worth every penny - can't wait for my next trip!.

My stay was disappointing, unfortunately, and I don't think I would return. Pros: Convenience to the airport, great buffets (especially dessert!), most of the staff was friendly and sincerely tried to be helpful (As to them for effort!) Cons: frequent/early interruptions by housekeeping, starting from 08:00. That is way too early to be knocking on people's doors. They'd come again... More

The Southern Sun O.R Tambo International Airport Hotel, is an excellent hotel. It's a very comfortable hotel and the rooms are very comfortable and the restaurant has great food. The buffet is very nice. The service is very good and friendly. This is a great hotel for business and family.

Nice comfy bed, and a well appointed room. Rate was reasonable, and breakfast more than adequate to set you up for the day. The free shuttle is regular and has you to the terminal in a matter of minutes. On the down side the staff were rude, and generally unhelpful, one member of staff greeting me most unprofessionally as I... More

The only down side to this hotel is its location. The best thing about this hotel is its location. So, if you need a place to stay near the airport this is it...not only is it well appointed, the staff offers gracious service on every front. I was prepared to compare the restaurant to what I'm used to from US... More

Southern Sun ORT hotel is located just outside the airport. The hotel have airport shuttle in every 15 minutes to Airport from Hotel. The room of hotels are big and specious however heater/air conditioning in the rooms are old and needs to be upgraded. There were no room footwear given. I think its not common in SA. In middle east... More

Under the veneer I out that the standard room was very shabby. Carpets,walls, tiles, everything basically shabby. The shower was so temperamental I could barely wash. Down in the restaurant the food was mediocre and the first few plates at the buffet were dirty. Staff friendly but why anyone would rate this hotel more than 3 stars is beyond me.

Had a short stay at the hotel but the service from the Front desk team was excellent. Mr Mahlangu ensured our requests were met and he was very helpful. The breakfast also is exceptional and all the waiters/treses had smiles on their faces. Will definitely be back:)
