I was flying from George (Western Cape) to Toullouse (France), my flight from OR Thambo was delayed and to avoid a 9 hour wait my son booked and paid for a room for me so I could take a shower and relax while waiting. I am so embarrassed if this is what visitors are subjected to. The reception staff are... More

Best part of this hotel is that it is within the terminal so you don't need to enter the country. But remember you will not be able to collect any of your checked luggage. Ok if all you want is a bed for a short layover. Rooms are modern but small. Room has curtains which hide a brick wall rather... More

The hotel is clean and staff are friendly. I was however not quite satisfied with the service as the tv went off during the night & I couldn't access the wifi. The hotel is however ideal for anyone in need for rest.

Make sure you book for the exact date you are in the airport for. We departed late on 30/12 and wanted room early on 31/12. Booked in November and sent FIVE emails to hotel and one to central reservation to explain that we had booked 30/1 but would arrive early 31/1. On arrival no room reserved and disinterested receptionist. She... More

This hotel lures you in with a beautiful exterior and well presented very clean rooms but fails to tick all the boxes for a weary transit passenger! Initially we asked to change rooms as we thought our aircon was broken, nope all the aircon units seem to blow hot air - an when you have been in an airport for... More

This hotel is easily accessed by complimentary hotel shuttle from O.R Tambo airport. It is only a few minutes away. Rooms at the hotel are of a reasonable standard with free wi-fi and coffee/tea facilities in each room. Buffet breakfasts and dinners are reasonably priced. The only draw back to staying here is that once you have arrived there is... More

Stayed here for two nights before my transit to Zimbabwe. The shuttle service from the airport to the hotel was very seamless. I was able to get an early check-in since my flight landed at 10am. The hotel looks very new with an industrial theme. There's a small gym downstairs from the main level, a pool (although I'm not sure... More
