I had an overnight in Jo'burg before continuing onward, and was looking for lodging that was close to the airport (but not ON airport). Outlook Lodge was great - I was picked up at international arrivals by driver, we were able to stop at an ATM outside of the airport; they offered to get take-away food for me that evening (but I just went to bed).
Room was huge, comfy, and so welcoming! Had a separate bath and shower area that could've hosted a square dance; as well as a sitting room in addition to the big bed.
Breakfast the next morning was so tasty - I can't remember having a better breakfast of eggs, mushroom, tomato, and bacon, as well as yogurt and fresh meat/cheeses. They were very accommodating to all requests.
Free use of their internet for 15 mins; longer incurs a fee of R30 per 1/2 hr.
Francois and staff were wonderful - definitely recommend!
