This is a good hotel. High standards. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable. Lovely ensuite. Lots of towels. Comfy bed. Dinner was good. Too many pudding choices ! I'm full. Run out of things to say now but trip advisor want me to keep typing so that's what I'm doing.

Stayed here 4 times on trip around S Africa. Rooms comfortable and restaurant serves good quality. Problem appears to be staff training e.g. hardly ever enough bacon at buffet/quotes for taxis wrong (and high)/room maintenance a bit variable/laundry not returned on time or as requested. Despite this you get a comfortable stay at a reasonable price. Just be aware to... More

After traveling 21+ hours this isn't where I wanted to spend the night. The hallways were dim and not especially clean. The room was awful and the bathroom was even worse. Everything was rusty, broken or corroded. On the bright side the dinner wasn't bad.

Nice hotel situated at ORT, value for money and good service, rooms and the corridors are dated, but good enough for a short sleep over for a couple of nights. The best part is the 24 hour shuttle service and hence very convenient to connect between flights. Restaurant is good as well as the break fast, if there is a... More

We overnighted at this hotel on our way to brazil and on the way back. The staff was very friendly and extremely accommodating. The room was new and clean and cozy. The beds were very comfortable. The food was sensational n there was a great variety. Although we got a baby cot with complimentary bath soap and lotion, there were... More

Spent an awful night at this hotel and slept with an extractor fan for the first time! The damn thing just could not be turned off in the bathroom. Near the airport and we asked for a quiet room as we are light sleepers. Well!

We stayed there overnight between international flights, so found this a great place to rest up before the next trip. Staff were very efficient and friendly and the hotel was well appointed and clean. The shuttle operated very frequently so no waiting about. Would definitely stay there again.

Tea/coffee in room. 2) free shuttle from/ to airport at regular intervals 3) staff very friendly and efficient throughout the Hotel from the shoe shiner thru to... More

Just had 4 nights here while working in Joberg. Located right on the airport, though a free shuttle is needed to get to it due to the airport road layout. Smart, modern and clean, with very attentive and friendly staff. Bedrooms a little dark (brown decor etc), but very well equipped with a good sized desk, king size bed, large... More

Returned again to this lovely hotel at the airport, for an overnight stay! Fantastic service, friendly staff and really peaceful environment. I was tired on arrival and was able to have a peaceful nap late in the afternoon - very quiet and peaceful rooms. A couple of transiting colleagues joined me for dinner at the hotel and we liked the... More
