“This is NOT near the airport”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

we were looking for an hotel near the airport which was suggested by Booking.com or at least inferred. The taxi fare to and from the airport was much more than the room. Room was adequate but there is no restaurant (Irish Pub next door) and is on an expressway in and industrial area.
Nothing wrong with this as a basic hotel but not what we wanted. Staff pleasant and helpful.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012 via mobile

Our room was broken into and our valuables stolen. The hotel management did not show any concern until we confronted them from information regarding the theft a few days later. This I not palace I would recommend if safety of self and goods is of priority.

Stayed June 2012

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

Very nice business hotel, staff very nice and helpful, rooms well appointed, clean and beds very comfy and quiet....its all i ask for!

Stayed here a couple of nights, had dinner outside in the restaurants which were also nice - the bills were passed back to the hotel. Breakfast was good value too.

There is a also a big shopping mall within walking distance.

Room Tip: i stayed at the back away from the road

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

Location is quite convenient for Gautrain or for drivers. Rooms very pleasant indeed: well-furnished, clean, and comfortable. Prices are very reasonable indeed (I paid about R520 or R550, I think). Internet access (paid for) did exactly what it said it would. Staff were really lovely - a definite strong point! Highly recommended. Didn't have breakfast, as it appeared overpriced ... but there are plenty of other options around.
