We had a night here courtesy of South African Airlines, after they failed to board us, and 8 other people on a flight to Livingstone.
The room was large, clean and modern, with a glass shower enclosure, wash basin and separate toilet. Large fluffy towels and decent toiletries were provided, together with tea/coffee making facilities.
The bed was large and very comfortable, just what we needed after an overnight flight from the UK and a very frustrating day sorting things out with SAA.
The hotel has no restaurant facilities, those in the airport are not fantastic, but there was enough to get an "OK" dinner and reasonable breakfast. As always at airports food and drinks are expensive.
There was no window in the room, just a wall behind the curtains, but aircon worked well, and surprisingly the room was very quiet despite it's location.
