We stayed here one night before leaving Africa. Every detail from checking in to the food,room etc. was excellent. (I agree with any great comments on the beds..I wish I had their bed at home)
This hotel is very relaxing and is top notch for details. We spent the last day at the spa. I highly advise this if you have the time. The price was very reasonable and my service from Gaddy was excellent. I wish she worked here in CA. I had back,neck,foot reflex and Indian head. This was a great way to prepare for the long flight home. This hotel might be higher in cost than the others in the area but it is well worth it. You can walk across the street to the airport.

Good Morning Mwitul and Thank You for the wonderful feedback on Trip Advisor - really appreciated. Yes, our beds are very good and something that we did not spare any expense on - as we realize that a good nights sleep before or after a long flight is absolutely essential for our hotel. Thank you for the positive feedback about Gaddy, but unfortunately she is unable to relocate to CA - so you will need to visit us here more often. Looking forward to your next visit, keep well, regards, Andrew Davidson, General Manager.

Stayed overnight between flights. Just a few steps from the airport terminal, it could not be more convenient. Rooms are luxurious and comfortable, with a marble bathroom and all the comforts of a five star hotel. Service was excellent. We ate dinner in the the restaurant - it was excellent, as was the breakfast. No airport noise. Stay here if you can!

Good Morning Bigbree and Thank You for taking the time to post feedback on Trip Advisor regarding your recent stay with us - most appreciated. I see you picked up on the no noise factor. Yes, 68.7 meters from the airport termainl, but tripple glazzing and thick glass ensures zero airplane noise. We look forward to welcoming you back, keep well and kind regards, Andrew Davidson, General Manager.

wonderful luxury hotel, just the perfect stop over for the tired traveller seeking all the comforts south africa can offer, The service is typical southern sun - just excellent !!! nothing is too much trouble, the staff all go out of their way to make one feel welcome. Spa and gym is superb, free internet and great restaurant and so close to the airport that one can relax and leave at the last minute without a worry of traffic etc...The rooms are silent, great beds, coffee machines, all the extras one would expect and more, like a call from front desk to see if there is anything else they can do.

Room Tip: This is an expensive hotel, but it is 5 star. the breakfast was superb, R165 which is not much more than the Protea nearby.

This hotel has everything right...please don't change anything. First of all the basics, ie. the things that all hotels should do well:
1. beds: fantastically comfortable with marvellous pillows (selection). I prefer this bed to mine at home and mine is a top-end bed bought in the USA;
2. showers: large and powerful. None of those water-restricted dribblers you get so many places.
3. customer service: first class. These guys all make you feel welcome. The bell boys will take your luggage all the way to the airport check in! The staff welcomed us back and played with our 2 year old son. They were all so warm and welcoming and willing to do what it takes to make your stay great.
4. great food: breakfast, lunch and dinner are all excellent!
5. indoor pool with amazing views on the top floor.

Combine this with the most conveniently located hotel in Joburg as it is attached to the airport and Gautrain train station, this hotel can't be beaten. And there is a fabulous spa on the top floor.

We'll never stay anywhere else in Joburg. It's fantastic!

Room Tip: North facing rooms have great balconies.

This is a very convenient hotel if you are on transit to other countries in the region or other cities within South Africa or if you are catching an early morning flight to whatever destination and you dont want to be caught up in Johannesburg traffic or simply relaxing after a long haul flight. The service is good and like all airport hotels it is a bit on the pricey side as you are paying for the convenience of a few steps to the check in counters. I liked the amenities, it does help that there is a spa where you could while away time whilst you wait for your flight.

Good Morning Nkuli M and Thank You for taking the time to post feedback regarding our hotel on Trip Advisor - really appreciated. Trust all is well in PE this morning. Yes, you've hit the nail on the head - convenience !!. No taxi's, no transfers, nothing - just 68.7 meters of pathway. I see you also noted our new refurbed Spa area - I hope you had some time to enjoy a treatment. Trust it won't be long before you next visit, keep well, regards, Andrew Davidson, General Manager.
