Airport Inn B&B

Reviewed 24 November 2012

Did an overnight at the Airport Inn last month. The place is nice and the airport pick up was certainly much appreciated. It was just too bad that the following morning, when we were looking for a send off to the airport, the front desk staff snorted at us, told us it was too early (around 0500 hours and no signage on the front desk) and that my baby was making too much noise. That was certainly not what were looking for after having been through a long haul flight and we were just on a layover in Johannesburg. We were made to wait. Got worried that the shuttle was not going to be available. Arrived at the airport just in the nick of time.

We stayed one night here. Appears to be an old appartment/condo complex. Food is frozen and served if you microwave. Decor of rooms is funky. Felt like a 70s type of place. Good things is the pick up and drop off to the airport. Okay for overnight stay.

I booked in a few weeks before I was due to arrive and gave my flight number and time arrival etc, for airport pick up. My flight arrived at about 4pm. I waited, I waited. I telephoned at 4.45pm to be told that "the bus was on it's way". Another half an hour and no bus! I phoned again, this time no one even answered the phone. Eventually went somewhere else, after waiting for 90 minutes and 2 phone calls!!!! I certainly don't recommend.

We booked a room for one night.
The friendly staff picked us up at the airport and after a short drive we arrived at the Airport Inn. We booked a bed and breakfast room and expected just that.
When we arrived we where amazed by the lovely garden and overall atmosphere.
The reception is located at a small bar next to the breakfast area.
There is a wall right next to the reception where all the guests can write messages.
This gave us more the impression of a hostel than a B&B.
We quickly realised the Airport Inn is a mix of both: they have a hostel area and a B&B area. And somehow the make it work.
We asked the reception to set up a guides tour thru Johannesburg and they arranged even a personal pick up.
At night we asked them for a nice place to eat and the brought us to the Emperor hotel and casino.
We also enjoyed the long conversations with the staff and owner (in Afrikaans :-) ).

We booked 70 people on a sports tour at the Airport Inn. Although the shuttles from the airport to the lodge were a bit slow in coming, the rates were extremely reasonable and included great breakfasts and all our shuttles backwards and forwards to Festival Mall and those shuttles were spot on time every time and whenever we needed them. The kids on the tour had freedom and space to move around with the lodge grounds which were safe and secure. So much better than being couped up in a hotel room and corridor! There were 2 stunning swimming pools although the water was a bit chilly heading into winter, they still made use of the big pool. The gardens were lovely with lots of tables and chairs to relax around. The rooms - although different configurations and sizes, were clean and comfortable - and they are building more units which will then better accommodate our big group next time :-) Very friendly staff, always willing to help - thank you Willem for your patience with all our requests. Amazingly enough this lodge is practically on the doorstep of the airport and yet the plane noise was much less here than it is at my house which is about 20km from my local airport. Thank you for a lovely 4 night stay.

Room Tip: I think the rooms facing the front gates were a bit noisier than those on the pool side. Some rooms...
