Two times one night we stayed at this hotel. Rooms are very good, so is breakfast (buffet). Not so good that we good take a shower the second time or flush the toilet, but this was due to a water pipe breakdown in the district. They made that up with the supply of bottles of water...

We stayed here only because we had a flight the next day so it was easier to stay at a hotel close by. Although, it's probably not as close as you think it is. I wouldn't recommend anyone staying here for any other reason as it is fairly far away from everything. There is a shopping centre and food within...

Handy enough, this OT airport hotel is a 10 minute shuttle ride (which departs every hour - on the half hour ) from the Terminal A departures hall. A really friendly welcome from the impressive Sifiso Dhlalisa - 'young' but knows how to engage and understands the very essence of great customer service ; an absolute asset ! I asked...

Spent one night at this hotel on my way out of Johannesburg and found it okay. Its a traditional multistory hotel with long hall ways but I liked that - I felt safe and secure. The staff were nice and it was a short walk to restaurants and some shops. The planes fly really low near the hotel, so it...

Stayed here 2 nights for a conference. The rooms are average. The main problem is the noise of the planes, which go right overhead but thankfully don't go the whole night. The service was very friendly & the prices average.

My group stayed here for 2 days. It was about a 15 minute ride from the Airport. The grounds are really beautiful. The rooms are nice and clean. The breakfast is the best. A full buffet with just about everything. The dinner is also good. Really nice upscale hotel. I would stay here again and recommend others. Great staff also.

We apologise most sincerely that you did not enjoy your stay with us and trust that this unfortunate experience will not mar your feelings about South Africa. The airport shuttle is advertised as running from 06h00 - 23h00 and any requirements outside these times are of a private nature - R250.00 is the going rate in this area for an...
