I write this review every 3 months as we always stay at the Premier the eve before my husband flies out. We love the rooms: neat, clean, and quiet.

I stayed at the Premier OT Tambo hotel several times. I like the hotel as it has very clean and comfortable rooms. In my previous stays, the staff was excellent while this time a good number of them seemed lazy and not very interested to the needs of the customers.
