I arrived late, well after nine at night. the staff was very friendly and helpful, everything sorted out within a couple of minutes. The porter collected my luggage at the airport, carried it to my room and back the next morning down to reception. what a pleasure.

Nothing special and no overnight stay, but two consecutive days in the same hotel conference can be difficult. What strikes me about this place is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, their willingness to do the best for customers in transit and those just sitting around. Highly recommended.

Only stayed one night stopping over in Joburg before continuing on to Cape Town, but it was lovely. Clean, nice rooms and gorgeous friendly staff who were very accommodating, allowing me to have breakfast early as I had an early domestic flight to catch. Would go again 10/10.

A 24 hour flight delay resulted in our booking a night at this hotel. We didn't arrive until 9:30pm and were surprised to find a modern and clean hotel room - as well as a very good restaurant for a late dinner. The grounds are very nice and the shuttle to/from the airport was very convenient as we took a trip to the airport to have lunch. My only issue were the flies in the room which probably came in when someone had opened the window. Otherwise, a great stay and I would recommend this hotel. Read less
