Arrived at Johannesburg airport and after a little difficulty found the hotel shuttle. The shuttle driver was very friendly and the hotel only 5 mins away. We arrived and the lobby was huge but looked a little gloomy. The bedroom was was large with Kingsize bed but it felt a little dank and dreary. However most airport hotels are. After... More

Cancelled flight and the airway booked me in here....lovely atmosphere and very helpful, friendly staff. Room was very clean and tidy. Evening meal was buffet style but the chefs catered for me and made my vegan main meal. Plenty of salads etc to choose from the starter counter as well.

Excellent all round praise for this hotel on my first trip to Johannesburg. Would highly recommend to anyone needing a one night stopover. Very efficient transport to airport running every 15 minutes with helpful staff.

Fantastic airport stay hotel, very friendly staff and great variety breakfast. Shuttle leaves every 15mins from the domestic terminal. Only slight negative is that the rooms aren't sound proofed so I did hear some outside noise, wasn't that bad and didn't affect my sleep

I was put up in this hotel when the plane I was booked on had a technical fault. The crowd of travelers were processed adequately. The rooms were comfortable. The bar was open until two. However, room service (the only place to get food) was slow. Not a memorable stay but could have been worse.

Free shuttle from airport every 15 min. Nice lobby with bar and restaurant. Check in was good and staff was nice. Food OK. Wife got a good massage on-site. However, the rooms tired and/or poorly renovated. The bed was comfortable. Internet "free" but very limited.

If you land @ OR Tambo Airport A silver building awaits to welcome you in peaceful environment. Best location in case you are in transit in SA, or for a business meeting or simplify on holiday. It's close to the airport but it's so quit you will thing you are somewhere far from the city and contrary to city life.... More

The staff at this hotel did everything they could to make our stay great!The rooms were very nice, the showers powerful, but the Internet was slow. I strongly recommend this hotel for families! They even let my kids surprise me with a birthday cake at no additional cost. Special thanks to Sharon, Peter, and S'thandwa!!!
