“Pleasant hotel with attentive staff”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

This hotel is close to the Gallagher Exhibition Centre and was a perfect location close by. The hotel receptionists were very attentive and efficient. The breakfast was rather basic, but what was on offer in a buffet layout was agreeable. The room was a little small as was the bathroom, but at the price it would have been difficult to complain. But, if you want or need to go further afield for meetings or for a good restaurant in Sandton, then one needs to hire a car for ease of getting around. When you combine the cost of car rental for 4 days and 4 nights at the hotel with the current exchange rate against GBP, the cost was very competitive.

I have stayed at this location a number of times over the years and have found it excellent value. Infact, I still see the same smiling faces at the reception desk that I did on my first visit here nearly 3 years ago.

The hotel whilst not being in the best immediate surrounds is secure and gated and staff 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.

There is a facility for delivery of food up until 9-30pm from nearby restaurant (not associated with the hotel), but I would advise to bring in from the Service Station within 200 metres... The food delivered is very greasy.

In center of Midrand, excellent position, friendly staff, good facilities and Internet. Really good for the price.
Only thing.. Breakfast is not included and really expensive if you opt-in, better go to one of the nearby places.

Rooms were ok, the bed was very good for one person. It was quiet at night, just some noise from loud people in the parlour. The breakfast was very good in my opinion, a lot of choices. The best thing was that we could get at the Gallagher centre on foot. The surroundings are not very nice, but however safe, with some useful shops.

Located in the outskirts of Johannesburg at Midrand city, the Hotel offers a quiet environment for business and entertainment.

Party lovers will however not find a lot of entertainment spots around the Hotel, as the Suburb in which the hotel is located is an affluent suburb.

Security at the hotel, especially when you decide to stroll outside the hotel compound is average. Friendly staff and really good infrastructure.

With buthtubs that are really clean, you would not wish for rain showers.
