We stayed at Aero Guest Lodge both going and coming from our safari in Botswana and had a wonderful experience. It could not be more convenient (just a couple of kms from the airport); we waited just 10 minutes for our transfer from friendly van driver Charles, and owner Adrian gave us a warm welcome and showed us around the property. Our family of four was very comfortable in the Family Room (a queen bed and two singles), which also had a spacious en-suite bathroom with both tub and freestanding shower. While the winter nights were chilly, a space heater in the room kept us toasty. Daytime temps warm up to the 20s(C)/70s(F), however, and while it was still too cool to brave the swimming pool, we enjoyed sitting in the sunshine in the chairs that look onto the verdant gardens that surround the lodge. It's a beautiful oasis in the middle of your typical light-industrial feel to most airport-proximate neighborhoods, and we felt very safe. The room was an excellent value, considering the high price of major hotels near Tambo Airport that are a lot less atmospheric or personable. An added highlight was the terrific hot breakfast that came with the price of the room--we were able to order off a menu that included eggs benedict, omelettes and a large traditional English or South African breakfast, as well as cereal, yogurt, fruit, etc., and brewed coffee, which is surprisingly hard to come by in much of Africa! The little restaurant on the premises also serves simple dinners (additional cost) in a cozy setting, with a wood fireplace that lends added ambience. We loved Aero Guest Lodge and we'll definitely stay again if we return to Johannesburg.
