The stay was good and shuttle service was great however,the cleaning is not thoroughly done especially in the toilet.Also there was moving of gas tanks around 10p.m which was very disturbing considering the time.

Proximity to the airport makes it a great location. But housekeeping isn't too great, cobwebs in rooms. Swimming pool not functioning, and breakfast not sufficient for guests. The Airport Shuttle is ok

Very poor place. It was quite dirty and the beds where awful. The poolarea was a disaster with green water that you could not swim in. The only positive was that the transfer worked well. It was cheap but not worth the money

Value for money. The ladies at the reception are very friendly and willing to give good service. They provide even a take away breakfast because we need to leave very early. Although it was only 1km from the airport, the noice level was acceptable.

The sevice was good. It was close to the airport. Just in the morning early the driver to the airport was 10min. late, but we still made it in time for the Mango flight to Zanzibar. The take away breakfast was only some fruit and yogut.

the driver can drop you off way out and he does not care if you have loads of luggage, so please keep an extra 30 minutes for the international Terminal A, I left on the 7 am shuttle and just about made it after a 100 m dash with a trolley before the counter closed at 0800 hours.

We needed a place to sleep during the 11 hours between arriving in Johannesburg and departing on a tour. For the price we paid, it was very adequate. The beds were comfortable and not having air conditioning or a fan was not a problem, given our jet-lagged condition!

The guest house is nicely situated next to the Airport, they have free Wi-Fi but they could improve on cleaning the surroundings leading to their back rooms. The room was clean.The garden is to die for and their Driver is so polite.
