After a 12hr flight to Johannesburg it was great to have a room available on arrival ( 7.30am) to catch up on our sleep. The rooms are very clean and have all the facilities needed for a comfortable stay. After resting we spent the afternoon in the sun around the pool and enjoyed a couple of Castle beers, a great way to relax on the first day in SA before moving on the next morning. We dined in the hotel restaurant in the evening and enjoyed a hot buffet dinner with a good bottle of wine - good quality and great value for money. The Bar area was spacious will wall to wall Premier League football if that is your thing. All the staff were very helpful. The only issue we reported to the Hotel was the noise from the road and airport during the early hours of the morning was not condusive to a good nights sleep. Hard to believe that a recently built hotel in that location does not have any double glazing or noise protection!
Overall an enjoyable and value stopover.
