Overall good experience. Neat and clean rooms, although a bit tight for 2 people with luggage. Food served in restaurant was good, with good service. Our friends had a hiccup at reception with their reservation. Care should be taken to have competent staff relate with paying customers. Shuttle was on time and clean. Driver friendly and helpful!

The room has airplane look & the picks on the walls are stunning. It has swimming pool and nice garden. The food is great with the staff who are always helpful, with a smile. You can stay as family, business (team.building & seminars), family functions or sports teams , young and old.

Good room for a long layover requiring rest, a shower and some relaxation. Staff are very helpful and provide all the assistance required. This will certainly be a top choice when stopping in Johannesburg with a long layover.
