I booked a large deluxe room a few days ago at a cost of 750 Rands, The whole place is shabby and a bit skanky, the pool was unusable unless you wanted an infection. The room was large but old and shabby looking, small tv with about 3 crap English channels (no DSTV). For some reason it had central heating but no air con or ceiling fan. A small noisy portable fan was available from reception but drowned out the tv which was then in turn ocasioanaly drowned out by planes taking off/landing (it's very close to the airport). Wifi did not stretch to the room but was available in the restraunt but still slow. The free breakfast was ok but not great, I asked for omelette and was told only fried eggs, then the next bloke ordered scrambled eggs no problem. The free shuttle to the airport stops at 10 am. Not far away there is a huge complex with casino, shops, restraunts, cinema and hotels, the Las Vegas of South Africa, rooms online were cheaper there. I almost cried when I realised later on. Airport inn you have to be back inside by 10.30pm as the security gates are locked for the night, not that there's anywhere to go anyway as its a dodgy area that you defo can't go walking about in.
I think it's also a backpackers with dorm rooms and it is more suited to them. Defo not worth the money and I wouldn't recommend it!
