We've been overnighting at this hotel for numerous years after flying in from Oz for the start of our annual safari to this amazing continent. The reception always welcoming; rooms are spacious and comfortable ; a nice soak in a bath welcome after a long flight; free wifi and shuttle; usual room amenities and the breakfast buffet is always better...

Landed up at this hotel after the total random chaos at ORT as a result of strike on 26 April. The staff were amazing - they dealt politely with grumpy passengers, used lateral thinking, quietly made plans - all with total calmness, efficiency and humor. Manager and staff working shoulder to shoulder. Well done to the team!

I stayed in room 149, and found it strange and inconvenient that there was no mirror in the bedroom, only in the bathroom. Other than that, my stay was pleasant, the room was clean, the breakfast, and the service in the breakfast room were very good. The service and food at O"Gradys grill were also good.

Excellent Service from staff members who are always willing to assist, Good food at affordable prices. Excellent WiFi, with fast connectivity. I would go back there anytime. The room was excellent even though small and I would have liked to have a sofa in to relax a little after a long day. Please provide sofas in every room.

Great Location for the airport. It was one of the cheapest well known hotels. Value for money. Good shuttle service to and from airport. Cleanliness could be improved at breakfast. Good for short stay.

Nice hotel for a nights stay when going to this area for business. Breakfast quite good and good service from the staff. Situated quite close to OR Tambo airport. Rooms also are very good with no noise from the aircraft apparent.
