We stayed here for one night while overnighting in Johannesburg. The location was fine for us since it is between the airport and midrand/sandton areas which made our travel a little easier. That said, you will need a car to get here and to get around.
The hotel facilities were OK (it is a holiday inn express, after all, not an intercontinental) so do not expect fantastic facilities. Even though the hotel is brand new it already looked a little worn.
Staff were fine and we have no complaints. Parking is plentiful.
Be aware that getting here is a little tricky: you need to enter the business park from the main entrance which is on Maxwell drive, about 1/2 mile east of the intersection of woodemead and maxwell drive. It looks like you are missing the hotel, but after you have entered the business park turn right at the t-junction and drive back to the hotel.
The reception is on the second floor, so you will need to take the elevator if you have luggage.
All in all, if you know what expect (remote location and it is a Holiday Inn Express) it is just fine for a short stay, but I would not stay here for anything over 3 days.
