Used it for two over night layovers, worked great. Place is close to OR Tambo, and on the border of some shady areas.... they have an airport shuttle that was great for us.... Eating options are limited at the attached restaurant, but was sufficient for us.

Rooms were clean and decent - no curtains so don't try to sleep late as the blinds don't keep the light out. We arrived and were left waiting outside the hotel for 5 minutes ringing the doorbell but none of the staff could be bothered to let us in - - bizarre!!!!!

I had a one-day stopover before leaving on safari and needed someplace close to OR Tambo to meet my group in the morning. My flight arrived at 9am, and I was able to immediately find the shuttle over to the hotel-- the trip is about 10 minutes. Check-in wasn't until 3pm, so I resigned myself to a long morning in...

We wanted a hotel close to the airport for an overnight layover that was inexpensive. Our family of 4 stayed in the family suite with a king bed, two twins and two bathrooms. The room was fine and we had dinner at the restaurant which was also fine. The breakfast had a large amount of choice of hot and cold... More

We stayed here on a 1 night stop over, the shuttle service is great as it is a free door to door service that runs basically every 15 to 30 minutes. The rooms are compact but ok, some features like the bathroom look like they are in need of a good revamp or clean up, but ok. The hotel was... More

We stayed at this hotel several times. The airport shuttle goes every 30 minutes with very friendly helpful drivers, the rooms are basic but all you need and very clean, the restaurant offers good food at a reasonable price. The only thing is that the price for a stay seems to be negotiable between R600 and R1000! Don't know how... More
