We found that the location, situated close to Oliver Thambo International airport has its business and personal advantages. Meetings with delegates from all over South Africa traveling by air have no problem getting here because there is a shuttle service and we are not expected to fetch anyone ourselves. The conference facilities and support are just perfect for us. Delegates can stay here and are more relaxed and able to focus on the business of the day, without the need to hire cars to travel to a distant conference centre. On a personal level we build a relationship with the staff whom know the dietary and individual, needs of delegates and the staff is wonderful with their personal touch and attention to detail . The excellent view of the busy international airport has a certain novel value. Noise levels are surprisingly low and do not distract as might be imagined being so close to the busy airport and R24. it is a very popular place for tourists too, so beware of booking late.
