My daughter and I arrived from Perth Australia on a Sunday morning after an 11 hour flight. I had booked a twin room but were taken to a room with a double bed. This was sorted and we were then taken to another room with a twin.
Staff were friendly and the hotel is well presented and the Bull Run Restaurant meals and service were very good and reasonably priced. The hotel is close to Mandela Square and Sandton Shopping City. Not much else to see otherwise. A good place to stay in transit between flights or tours. We had a lot of trouble connecting to the wifi.
