After flying from Melbourne via Perth, we were glad to reach our comfortable airport hotel very quickly after arrival at 6 am. We had a room ready for us and after freshening up we were ready for a day tour of Soweto. Our room was generous in size, comfortably furnished and well equipped. We had buffet dinner and later breakfast,...

Although we found the Hotel comfortable with friendly staff, the rooms need a make over. Carpets were shabby and dirty. Many loose corner strips in the corridor made it look and feel awfull. I stayed on 3rd floor. Food excellent although not the same than before.

An old favourite offering comfortable rooms close to the airport at an affordable price. Noise proof. Complimentary shuttle will see you checking in 5 minutes after boarding from the pick up point. Bernoulis restaurant great for dinner and breakfast. Complimentary welcome drinks, nice shop and beauty salon. Service with a smile. Will stay again.

Excellent .We only stayed for one night but our overhaul experience was that this hotel from the check in to the check out was unbelievable and is strongly recommended.

Despite being busy, the staff is mindful of your schedule and is prompt with wake up calls and airport transfers. A very practical and yet classy accommodation, meals at the restaurant are...

The bathroom was very tired and in need of refurbishment, the shuttle service to the airport is extremely useful and efficient. The breakfast was very good with a wide selection, but the free internet connection duration is very short.

As a platinum card holder i was thoroughly disappointed that my request for halaal breakfast was not adhered to. The room quality and lighting is very poor. A disappointment for the price paid and for it being part of my honeymoon journey.
