A great hotel for transit passengers to Johannesburg's Tambo Airport (10 minutes away). We had a family room which included 1 queen bed with 2 king singles; enormous motel styled room with double vanity basins outside the actual bath and toilet area. The vanity area was much larger than the bath area. However there was plenty of room for 4 large suitcases and hand luggage.
We were comfortably accomodated, the room was spotlessly clean, and the decor appeared to be new. Although promoted as 3 star by travel agencies, it's really more in line with 4 star accomodation.
The beauty of this complex is that it is connected to the Casino Emporium, which you can walk through the building to a number of restaurants. The restaurant area is done very much in the Caesar's Palace Style with the indoor roof and clouds. It gives one the feel that your in an outdoor dining area in Italy. All levels of dining are catered for; from kiosk to family restaurant to a la carte to more upmarket. For those travelling with families and not interested in checking out the casino facilities the restaurant area is before entry to the casino, so can be avoided if preferred.
An excellent breakfast was included with great service, inclusive in the tariff. The only fault in the hotel was that the reception staff did not seem to be totally coherent in English and didn't seem to understand questions directed at them. A little odd considering Afrikaan's and English are the official languages of South Africa.
However, overall, it was the best transit hotel we have used anywhere in the worldv and we would definitely rebook should we travel to Africa again.
