I was very pleased with this hotel. It was easy to get to. To take the shuttle from the Joburg airport to the Southern Sun OR, just keep going straight out of the airport from the customs/immigration. There is a ramp from the main floor of the airport so you can easily take a luggage cart up the ramp and exit the airport. From there you go straight across as there is a sidewalk provided to the departure area for waiting hotel shuttles. I waited about 10 minutes and after the shuttle arrived (really a van with a small trailer) in less than 10 minutes I was at the hotel.
The front desk staff was very helpful. Beverages are provided as you enter the lobby and I appreciated that as I was really thirsty from the overseas flight. I found the rooms to be spacious and quiet even though I was close to the hotel. The restaurant is very good but always seemed busy and crowded. There was plenty of seating so I never had to wait. Service is very good at the restaurant.
Check was quick and I waited just a few minutes for the shuttle to take me back to the hotel. If you want a clean, close to the airport and above average hotel, this is place that I recommend.
