The Paxton hotel is an awesome, clean, neat and friendly hotel. The staff is always willing to assist and I feel very comfortable there. I always deal with Anton Pretorius who is very efficient. It is also very close to the airport which is a bonus.

The Paxton is the type of hotel that one finds anywhere in the world nearby an airport. It is a little difficult to find access to if driving. We were at the Paxton while it was entertaining several bus tours and the restaraunt focussed on those guests. Our room was modern, spacious and clean.
