Arrived here at 11pm after travelling from Scotland. The hotel looked good from the outside and the receptionist was pleasant. The public areas looked promising. It was downhill from there though. The room was small, stuffy, and dark. Couldn't see out the window for some kind of external embellishment. Just got into the small double bed and slept. Daylight when...

The staff on arrival are brilliant and very helpful. Room 262 had a stained carpet and the cupboard doors were dirty. The aircons in the room are in need of upgrading, they are not strong enough to cool the room sufficiently.

The expectation was high the reality was disappointing. The hotel is looking tied. The rooms are not international standard at all but basic. On a positive note the food was ok. The carpets in the room were dirty and the AC was nonexistent .

very well taken care of and Excellent customer service. I do not worry no more about having a stopover in Johannesburg because I know exactly where to stay. The staff was lovely with my child and the rooms were spacious and clean. The restaurant food was truly amazing especially the Breakfast!

The location is great if you have a short layover to avoid having to go into the city. Overall the hotel is nice and has the amenities expected in a four star hotel but the rooms can use a face lift. The carpets are old and therefore have a lasting musty smell. Stayed on a stopover to and from a...

We had to stay in town as we lost the connection (airline’s fault) and we were placed in this hotel for the night. It was a great surprise. We had a voucher from the airline and the front counter person knew what to do (as in did not ask unnecessary questions such as “do you need a late check out?”)...
