While one of the positives is the complimentary shuttle pick up, everything else looked jaded given that this was a Southern Sun property. The corridors as also the room had carpets which for sure needed some real cleaning. The A/c unit was the old box type with some of the knobs broken, bedsheets torn etc. as I was there for... More

I was surprised a hotel of your reputation did not have a fridge in the room. I however welcomed the fact that I could make tea/coffee at any time. The TV channels were excellent in that I had a choice.

Great location next to the airport with free and frequent transfers that only take a few minutes.. This causes a slight delay at check-in as people arrive at once but certainly nothing to complain about and all the reception staff were very friendly. Room was very clean and comfy with a great walk-in shower, good wifi and cable TV. No... More

When booking in I was given a room on the third floor. I usually get a room on the fifth floor. When I entered I was astonished at the luxury of this room. State of the art air conditioning, a bottle of wine, biscuits a fancy Southern sun pen, Charlotte Rhys soap, conditioner, soap and body lotion. There were seven... More

It is however a very good choice around OR Tambo. This time the check in process was smooth and quick unlike in my last... More

We have stayed here a number of times while in transit and, after the long haul from Australia, the staff and facilities here are more than welcome! On this trip, we were arriving to spend two weeks driving through South Africa on a delayed honeymoon. I did not book a honeymoon 'package' or suite, merely informing the hotel in my... More
