This hotel exceeded our expectations! We had a long day of travelling before we arrived and we were very happy to have such good service.

This hotel has everything I'm looking for in an airport hotel. The scheduled shuttle is easy to find and arrives every 1/2 hour on schedule. A special mention to David, the doorman for outstanding service. I had some scheduling problems which Penelope handled with grace and professionalism. Special thanks to Jayson for his help.

I stayed here during a tour of South Africa for business and found it a good choice. The rooms are fine, the restaurant is good and quite reasonable and the grounds were quiet despite overlooking OR Tambo airport. It is however a very busy hotel and whilst the service is kept up , you do feel that it would be... More

This is a modern hotel, but their service is terrible. We tried to eat at the buffet, but they never filled the empty bowls on the buffet.

If you want a good quality airport hotel then look no further! Rooms good, bed fantastically comfortable and shower excellent. What more do you need? Oh yes the breakfast was pretty good too. Reception staff were friendly and good natured.

Since our Group tour was going originate from there, we chose to stay here one day prior to our trip. It offers free airport shuttle and is very close to the airport. The room was nice, but did not care for the set up of the bathroom. The breakfast was very nice and had lots of varieties.
