“Friendly Practical place”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

You can easily walk from the international arrival with your trolley. Staff is friendly, rooms first class and the following morning they drive your trolley and suitcase right to the check-in counter. So the place is ideal for anyone using this airport as a transit point.
We had meals in the restaurant, they are excellent. The rooms are soundproofed so there is hardly any noise from the aircrafts.

Good Afternoon JS1942 and Thank you for taking the time to post feedback on Trip Advisor regarding your recent stay with us. I do apologise for only comming back to you now, as we were not aware that someone had created a duplicate listing for our hotel on Trip Advisor - so whilst we were attending to our main page, there were guests posting reviews on the duplicate page, that we were not aware of. All resolved now - merged - and a sincere apology for only replying now. Thank you once again, Regards, Andrew Davidson, General Manager.

Very good hotel, clean and well kept, within a 2 min walk from the international arrival. Room is adecuate and nicely decorated. Good bathroom and spacious shower. Service: when leaving bellboy will take your luggage to the checkin counter at the airport. Excellent hotel for overnight stay due to delays, stopover, etc.

Travel agent booked, we were very pleased with the overall hotel, modern, clean, every need was met.
Food was amazing, staff was better than amazing ! The breakfast buffet was just spectacular, and was part of the "B & B" package.

Good Morning trax 1322 and Thank You for taking some time out of your day to post feedback on Trip Advisor regarding your recent stay with us. I see that you did not enjoy your time with us and we kindly extend a sincere apology for that. As you can read, this is definately not the norm and we take all feedback seriously. With regards to the second person charge - this is a worldwide IHG issue and the IT team are working hard to rectify how the rate is displayed on the internet - we apologise for the confusion. With regards to breakfast - we just changed the entire set up yesterday for a new / refreshed look - so hopefully on your next visit - you'll come stay with us again and you could experience the new breakfast first hand. Have a great Easter Holiday - regards, Andrew Davidson, General Manager.

A walk distance from OR Tambo (in fact it is inside the airport) the hotel is very convenient, modern, clean and a impeccable services I strongly recommend this hotel.

The food is delicious and recommend Beef and Malva Pudim as desert.

The rates are not cheap, but the quality is high.

This hotel is a few minutes walk directly from the arrivals area of JNB airport.

The staff were friendly, professional and helpful. My room was of a very high standard and had good sound proofing despite being in the centre of the busy airport complex.

I used their car service and found the driver friendly and helpful.

Overall an excellent option for a stopover/early flight etc.
