Room was good - clean and well equiped with plugs and desk to charge laptops, phones etc. Staff were pleasant at checkin. I enjoyed the complimentary muffin and coffee at reception especially for a crack of dawn start to the day.

We have never had any problems booking and staying here after 3 trips. The staff is always friendly and eager to help. The restaurant staff are nice and helpful in any way they can. Any requests for adjoining rooms or room locations has been met.

Difficult to find from the airport as the signs just dissappear. Even my local guide who collected me at reception the next day, got lost on the way out. Bedroom window wouldn't shut properly. Other than the above was ok for the price

There is also a shuttle bus (R75 one way) to the airport Not spectacular but delivers... More

Had been staying in this hotel due to the close proximity to my contractor. The hotel is very close to the airport and other facility. The staffs are friendly and offer places of interest when notice we had no plan for our weekend. Room are clean and well taken care.

The hotel is 10 minutes from the airport and the shuttle costs R148. Based on that, calling it an "airport hotel" is a tall tale. The shuttle also stops at the airport busstop - which is full of guys standing around to "help" with your bags and beg for hundreds of rands in tips. The hotel is very nice, breakfast... More

Just accross from arrivals very handy for an overnight layover. Downside is lack of a proper restaurant. Burgers etc are ok. Some food reheated. Reasonably priced. Checkin was efficient although later in the evening the queue was huge.
