The place is so convenient as it is so close to OR Tambo. Very a nice for an over night stay when connecting flights. But the sound of planes landing and taking off is a bit of a turn off. But its really not a big issue. Shuttle services are available to and fro the airport.

Had an overnight layover and ended up at Dove's Nest- perfect place for my stay, very reasonable prices (much cheaper than other airport hotels!), free airport transfer both ways, wifi, restaurant, clean comfortable rooms. Would definitely recommend it!

I stayed one night - the airport shuttle was arranged but no one met me. I enquired at the reception desk and they helped me to find the meet and greet person. She called for the shuttle, which took 45 minutes to travel the 3km from the guest house. The room was clean but really basic. No windows,airconditioner or fan.... More

A group of us stayed here for one night before travelling home. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast and dinner was of good standard for what you pay. There's free Wifi in reception which was good and you can pay a small amount to have it in your room. About five minutes away from the airport so... More

After arranging for them to pick me up at the airport, I waited 30min after leaving the baggage terminal. Then I saw someone with my name on a sign walking in. It was one of the cooks - she still had her hair net on. Then we had to wait another 10 min for the driver. The breakfast was badly... More

Dove's nest is a little bit on the expensive side for B&Bs around the airport area. I visted the guest house during winter in South Africa, the rooms were freezing, although they did provide a heater. the double bed is a bit small for a couple, and the towel had hairs on it, needI say we did not use the...

This B&B is close to the airport and reasonable cheap but that's about it. Reception is decent but the family ' suite' was dreadful! Bad & insufficient bedding for a cold Johannsburg night, tiny double bed in the Main room, ceilings in bathroom were moldy and the flooring was in a terrible state. Although it was not dirty the rooms... More

Dove's Nest was ideal for arriving or departing Johannesburg. It has secure parking and airport pick up, which we did not need. Dinner was good, as was breakfast. For a budget lodge, this was fine. We only arrived, ate dinner and breakfast, and left so everything was as expected. It's very close to the O. Tambo Airport and each room... More

Dove's Nest is close the the Johannesburg airport and an ideal place if you have an overnight layover. The rooms are small but always clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, dinner and breakfast are tasty, and the price is very reasonable. The airport shuttle is convenient and quick. All in all, a great value in an excellent location.
