This was a great hotel if you needed to stay overnight & fly out the next day, which we did. Rooms were clean & quiet. Breakfast was lovely. Free shuttle to the airport and to the nearby casino/entertainment centre for restaurants & some shopping.

Just to clarify, the first room I stayed in (superior) was ENTIRELY too small for myself and my family. Even though the 2nd room I was moved to (an Executive unit) was not advertised or advised as a "family friendly" unit, we found it much better. We have a little 10mth old baby and the "crawlspace" in the second room... More

I had arrived in the evening. Had to wait at least 10 minutes to get checked in although there was plenty of staff behind the desk and only one customer ahead of me. When finally attended to, the employee required the credit card I had used when I booked the hotel room in July 2013. Since it had expired she... More

I spent only one night at the Tsogo Southern Sun O. R. Tambo hotel but I found the hotel to be nicely appointed with modern décor. The food was quite good. The employees were helpful and courteous. The gift shop had a nice variety of items to purchase as souvenirs and prices seemed reasonable for most items.

Because it's next to the airport, it's OK as a stop-over stay only. When you make your reservation specifically ask that they NOT put you in the older wing of rooms, or you will regret it; they are run-down, out-dated, barely functioning, dark, dank rooms. Our toilet didn't flush, A/C didn't work, window was jammed shut, NO HOT WATER, and... More

Food was lovely, the service was fine, the concierge, Nicholas went out of his way to assist with an expected parcel. The service at reception could be upgraded a little, a smile and a "good morning" from the general staff also goes a long way. For a business meeting/conference, the location (right next to the airport) goes beyond convenience althoug... More

Average property but old and rooms need to be revampedThe dining room does not know when a table is being used by you.I went to the buffet table and came back to find my table taken by two other guest and I had to find another table.A simple reserved sign on the table would solve the problem .
