If you are planning to stay by the airport that's a great option. Room is large with everything you need in terms of comfort: nice bed, blankets, cosmetics at bath. It's silent and had a safe way to the airport where you can access atms and restaurant. Also the access to the Gautrain is very important. 15 min away from... More

Always a pleasure to be there, rooms are neat, clean & breakfasts are superb. The extra "take-a-way" section is a bonus, especially because you don't pay for it on those early mornings when there is no time to grab breakfast. Only not happy that they have changed their coffee shop menu & have no vegetarian options!

I always stay at this hotel when in Johannesburg. It is well located, close to OR Tambo airport, Edenvale and Greenstone & Eastgate shopping centres. The staff are friendly, helpful & professional. Safe parking. The dining area, pool and gardens area are really pleasant. Excellent value for money.

We stopped here for one night during our holiday while transferring between our safari and flying out to Mozambique. Wasn't too sure from the reviews but ideal for a stopover.

Hotel is good for a quick night or two night stay over. Great for doing business in the area. Breakfast was all good. Above standard on the selections. Gym facility was small but still good for a workout away from home.

It's only 10 minutes away from the airport on Barbara Road right on the highway. It feels quite safe once you enter the place.
