Always our go to Hotel when in J'burg. The place is clean, rooms great, meals are worth waiting for and the staff very friendly and always willing to help. The souvenir shop has great variety and very well priced. For business trips or as a family hotel, it is well worth it and good value for money. Definitely recommended.

good value hotel at a great distance from the airport. Staff were friendly and food and buffet was very good. Service generally good. Clean with all the necessities for a short stopover, except the aircon was a bit old.

No hot water for morning shower!! No point complaining as by then its too late to fix. Breakfast starts too late (6:00) for people that have early flights, so could not attend a breakfast I paid for. Will never stay there again. Shuttle service to airport is advertised as every 15 minutes, it took longer than 20m, three out of...

I needed a convenient hotel to overnight in at the airport. Note that the hotel is not inside the airport terminal, but a short distance away. You should ask at the Info desk inside the airport where to get the shuttle. It's very easy. The shuttle is close to the car rental offices and leaves every 15 minutes. Food is...

This hotel has to be one of the best hotels I have ever stayed. The hotel staff were professional and friendly to all everyone. They were dealing with a stress of a cancelled flight and still very professional. The rooms were clean and comfortable. This is must for anyone transiting through Jo'burgh

Hotel closed to the airport with fast shutle service. I booked the hotel through expedia, which i really suggest, because since the first moment they were upset with the quality of the hotel. The only thing forgot was that double queen beds are very unconfortunable for 2 persons. Breakfast is very good. Dinner if asiatic is not your taste avoid...

We booked one night at this hotel in order to catch a flight to East London the next day, and had reserved a twin-double bed room to accommodate two adults and two kids.
