I've been coming here for about two years now and have never been disappointed. Gotta love the breakfast buffet. Tasty meals and very warm and always smiling staff. The rooms are always neatly done and the beds are so comfortable you may just forget that flight you have to go take.

I had a lovely stay here for two nights in Nov 2016, and found it to be a value for money accommodation option for travellers. It's near the airport with frequent shuttles there. The hotel also provides a shuttle service to Emperor's Palace - a nearby casino with lots of restaurants. Wifi provided in this hotel is one of the...

The hotel is conveniently close to OR Tambo int'l airport with a shuttle between airport and hotel every 30 minutes. As expected the rooms are quick noisy due to being across the airport. But, the staff are extremely friendly and hepful. Rooms are neat and comfortable.

Being a bit of an aviation enthusiast I like an airport hotel that actually has the feel of an airport... and this one certainly does. Airport theme throughout, and higher level rooms have view over the airport. Good service and decent food, though room service portions were a little small.

We were there for literally 12 hours because of an early morning flight. The hotel has a shuttle that leaves every half hour and it leaves from behind the intercontinental hotel.

The size of the rooms is rather small, I stayed the night with my wife and 11 month old daughter. Felt a bit cramped for my liking. The rooms are well-kept and spectacular, though. The shuttle service is on point, and the staff is helpful and delightful.
