“Expensive but nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2007

Hotel was really expensive at £200 for the room even though we made the booking on the same night at midnight.
Room was nice and clean and a very decent size. The whole Hotel is lovely but due to our flights didn't get to spend enough time there! Will hopefully get the chance to return for a couple of as it is a lovely Hotel!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2007

We stayed in this hotel for one night while we were in transit from Zambia to Krueger Park and it was a delightful break. The hotel is a deluxe facility and beautifully decorated. The accommodations were first rate as were the hotel services and restaurants. There is also a beautiful indoor pool and spa on the top floor overlooking the airport which was great to use and relax in. Had a delightful dinner in the ground floor restaurant, Quills as well as a great bottle of SA wine. Breakfast the next morning was probably the best breakfast I have ever been served in my life and not to be missed if you are staying here.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2006

We stayed at this hotel only for an evening after arriving on our long haul flight.

This is probably the best airport hotel that I have stayed at, apart from it being a little overpriced in the room department.

The size of the room, quality of the service, as well well as having a decent “dumper” shower was everything that was needed.

The Gym is open 24 hours, which is great if you could not sleep, and as we were on our honeymoon we received a bottle of South African Sparkling, as well as a few long stemmed roses.

The breakfast was reasonably priced and was fantastic. There were also the departure screens from the airport in the hotel to make it a little easier.

Its about a 2 minute walk to international, and the same to domestic – we had no trouble being hassled and did not feel “in danger” at all.

Would stay again in an instant.

We stayed only for the one night but had a comfortable stay. Rooms are quiet and we didn't hear any noise from the airport at all.We had lunch in the restaurant which was lovely. This hotel is ideal for a one-night stopover before or after a flight but is extremely overpriced.

  • Liked — Very near the airport
  • Disliked — That it was too expensive
