The hotel offers a transfer from and to the airport free of charge. The transfer worked fine on the night of arrival, but the next morning it was a disaster. The shuttle offers the transfer to the opposite sister hotel and as that is more luxurious the 10 seater bus stops there first and when it comes around to the Peermont the bus is already full or only has place for 2 - 3 persons. As we were a group of 10, this was a huge problem as the shuttle only comes past every 20 - 30 minutes. We spoke to reception, but they also could not help. There were lots of other guests that had the same problem and at one stage there were about 25 persons waiting for the shuttle and as you would expect everybody needs to get to the airport for their flights. In the end I got the hotel to call a taxi as it was impossible to get on to the shuttle. It cost R100.00, which is acceptable.
The hotel is quite modern and offers all you would need. The rooms are spacious and very modern. The only thing I don't approve of is the bathroom layout. There's no door or wall and the whole bathroom is closed with a curtain. This is very unpractical and stupid design and I sometimes ask myself if the architects that come up with these designs have never travelled and seen how uncomfortable it is if you need to share a room? I would only recommend these rooms to single travellers.
The hotel should also have spend some money on double glassed windows as the nearby airport makes it quite loud when an aircraft takes off or lands. The noice is not unbearable, but the hotel should have a look at other airport hotels around the world and learn.
There's a casino and entertainment at the close by Emperor's Palace, which makes it easy to entertain yourself while there.
