One pic speaks better than a thousand words and mine will show anyone, but there is something I must mention: 😵😵😵😵The best ostrich stake medallion I have ever had, at dinner that night 😵😵😵😵. This hotel has also an incredible lounge pool. The whole hotel is really trendy and very practical for travellers.

As a regular guest I would like to thank Anton and his team for always making me feel welcome. I also see how every staff member goes out of their way to make guests feel welcome, and want to commend every team member for their effort and dedication. I can assure you that when you book at this hotel you will get 5 star service.

The rooms are small but nice. what I didn't like was a picture showing a plane falling. It can merge with the decoration, but is not proper to an airpot hotel. The the breakfast is wonderful. I have to report that there is a hotel into the OR Tambo airport whit almost the same name which caused confusion and and made us lose time for nothing. Read less

Booked this for one night for an early flight the next morning. After having stayed in some amazing hotels during our holiday I was sure that our last night would be disappointing. How wrong I was. The hotel was quirky with an airport/airplane theme. Lots of aluminium. Bed was very comfy, shower good. We had a very good meal in the restaurant and there was a good choice of gin (essential!). I loved the outside pool area although it is right next to the runways. In our room however we were not disturbed by airport noise. Not sure I'd book it unless I was using the airport but it really was very good for that purpose. Read less
