Needed somewhere to get a good night's sleep before heading off on safari. Convenience & comfort was all we needed so we chose the Protea OR Tambo for it's excellent price & proximity to the airport & we were very impressed.
The style of the hotel is modern/industrial - steel & brick theme of aviation with an outdoor pool area which looked nice but we did not use & a large bar/dining room taking up the ground floor. Staff were friendly & check-in was easy. We requested one of the quiet rooms away from the airport & it was just that. The room is what impressed us the most; after going down a long, rather dark corridor our room was surprisingly spacious & bright & very comfortable. Excellent comfy bed with lots of extra pillows & good quality linen. Bathroom was very attractive & spotless & was well equipped. Robes, slippers & tea & coffee making facilities were an added bonus.
Skipped the breakfast but had a light dinner which was very good value. For an airport hotel it definitely ticked all the right boxes & for the price it is pretty hard to beat.
