Great place for a stop over before catching a flight. Very helpful and friendly staff. Large and comfortable room, very quiet and secure. Most important - 10 mins from the airport! Billing at check out took too long though ...

We stayed here for just a night to catch an early flight in the morning. When we got to our room all the windows were open with no screens. I saw spiders hanging from the ceiling. The room smelled very musty and kind of smoky. We shut the windows and turned on the A/C and went to dinner. We were...

Smart, elegant, easy access to all facilities staff very helpful and friendly. Dining Room a bit confusing at times with where the dessert was. I really like the proximity to the airport. The conference room was slightly small but I really enjoyed Khanyi she was very helpful and the coffee was great.
