Reasonable beds, bath. Service above expectations, good meals(selfservice) and rich breakfast. Lucky if you don't haver to share the hotel with a desrespectfull mob. In that case your night sleep will be compromised. It's a five-ten minutes driving from the airport with 30-30' free shuttle.

The welcomed i received was not of the standard i expected, especially since the payment was done bu my company. Maybe if it was my individual payment then there would be justified in the treatment that I received.

The hotel is rated 3 star but I have been to other Three Star GArden Court hotels across the country and they are not as tired or outdated as this one. On first impression it looks nice but the room I had was tiny, which for R1300 I would expect a bit more room. The windows are old metal windows... More

Had one night and two days in Johannesburg. Perfect for a short stop. 5 mins from the airport and 20 mins from Johannesburg main centre. For a budget hotel the hotel is very nice. Large rooms and comfy beds. All staff are extremely helpful and polite. Breakfast buffet the usual. Overall a nice stay for a short time. Would recommend.

The Room was spacious and fit for purpose which was a one night stop over before onward journey from Africa to Mauritius. The lobby area and staff were very friendly, but we were disappointed that we were not collected from the airport as arranged. The breakfast the next morning was sufficient and again the staff friendly, ensuring that you had... More

Garden Court OR Tambo is a clean, straightforward hotel that is close to OR Tambo International Airport. Nothing fancy but is fine for an overnight stay while coming and going from Johannesburg. There is a free shuttle service to and from the airport.

I have stayed at several places around O.R. Tambo and found the Garden Court to be one of the better ones. It was a short shuttle ride away and arranged by the hotel. Rooms were clean and comfortable. I liked the on site restaurant, Rosie O'Gradys. Good burgers, cold beer and reasonable prices. The location also had a gym area... More
