This was an overnight stop as I had to go to Bloemfontein but it was a nice place to spend the night. The staff was friendly and accommodating. It was an evening check-in but the service was prompt.
The beds were comfortable and even though it is situated close to the airport, there was no noise to keep me wake. I did not use a shuttle but had contracted with AVIS car service to get around in South Africa so I don't know if there were delays or not as mentioned in some of the posts here.
Did not eat, so can't comment on the food either. The room does have the shower with a glass partition inside the room where one sleeps. I really wanted a room with a bathtub after being on the plane for more than 18 hours, but she told me they were on the smoking floor so I passed on that. I don't know if all are located on the smoking floor or if the one available that night was on the smoking floor but it is something you can inquire about when booking or checking in.
Yes, I would stay here again.
