“Great hotel, ok location...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I have stayed at this location a number of times over the last 2 years and have found it excellent value.

The hotel whilst not being in the best immediate surrounds are secure and gated and make the guest feel very safe. It is well located for the motorway and surrounding facilities.

Reception and breakfast staff are very helpful and any queries dealt with promptly.

I always use this hotel when flying in and out of OR Tambo Airport or watching cricket at Centurion / Wanderers, as while it is not the closest I find it is the best value.

Wireless Internet is good, but could be better value; breakfast is good quality but relatively expensive.

Room Tip: Have only ever stayed in a ground floor room, and find these to be excellent. Ask for a no-smoki...

The staffs were very helpful and professional. It is a small gated hotel right behind the convention centre. This was very convenient for me as I didn’t have to spend money on taxis. Very nice and clean rooms.

We stayed in this hotel only for one night in March. The hotel is aesthetically appealing. There is some safe parking even though it's uncovered parking. Check in was quick. Friendly staff.The lift was not working, so we carried our bags up to the third floor unassisted... Struggled to use the entrance card, but got the knack of it when a friendly maid assisted us. Comfortable beds and nice enough room. The kettle's cord was too short so we had to boil water on the floor...
The mainstay of our disappointment was when my wife could not sleep due to a bad headache, I finally went down to reception to ask if they had any form of analgesia (Paracetamol, aspirin an many more combinations are freely available in the RSA). They had no such thing at all, in the whole hotel? So the man at reception advised me to walk over to the closest garage which was 4 lanes opposite the hotel. He said the security guard would accompany me. The guard refused when I got to the gate. I asked him to at least watch me walk over. The garage refused to open the doors and LUCKILY sold me some aspirin and paracetamol through the outside pay slot. I walked back and found that I had been locked out of the gate and the guard never watched me walk over the large road in the middle of the night in the middle of Johannesburg? I am a South African and there is a reason why the garage did not even want to open it's doors (Crime). So why oh why would the hotel staff not act in the best interest of their guests??
We had a quiet room away from the highway, sleep came easily enough.
Checkout was quick, and accompanied by friendly smiles.
This is a nice enough hotel. But they do not seem to be wanting to go the extra mile for their patrons.
So, like the title says: Acceptable, but disappointed

Room Tip: Room at the back, less noise

we were looking for an hotel near the airport which was suggested by Booking.com or at least inferred. The taxi fare to and from the airport was much more than the room. Room was adequate but there is no restaurant (Irish Pub next door) and is on an expressway in and industrial area.
Nothing wrong with this as a basic hotel but not what we wanted. Staff pleasant and helpful.
