No kettle in the room, although promised one it never arrived. Room not particularly clean and mattress so hard it made sleeping impossible. Very disappointed as our last stay was much better. Not sure we will return.

Delightful safe & beautiful oasis to rest before a long trip home. Warm greeting by owners who could not do enough for you & I will stay there next time I come & go from South Africa. Very comfortable room- clean & quiet despite only being 4kls from the airport & the shuttle service Free!!!! was excellent- driver very helpful.

Nice B&B with a good pick-up and bring service to the airport. First time I had an airfoil at the room, second time unfortunately not. A very good price to quality ratio. Close to the airport. Breakfast was good to start the day.

Reception was not at all good. I had to get back to reception because I could not find the room and none of the two people at reception seemed keen to take me too the right place. Lighting in the room was poor. There was an unplesant smell in the room. The TV was not clear. The breakfast was appalling.

Staff were very friendly and the free airport shuttle was really convenient. Rooms were dated but for the price we paid were good value for money. If you're looking for a reasonably priced stay close to the airport with free shuttle - then this is the place for you.

3 hours of verification for 31$ room is horrible. My booking was made by company credit card. My name was printed on a booking as a guest. Due to very high fraud committed in Johannesburg, the hotel staff asked me to provide a copy of both sides of a credit card and a copy of passport. Seriously? For what? Finally...

It was a handy place to stay for one night near the airport... The TV was from last century and given the place is so isolated it was the only source of entertainment, so updating TV´s and making sure WiFi works in all rooms would be greatly appreciated :) shuttle service was kind and nice

I was surprised entering this place, so close to Tambo Airport. Such specious clean rooms and good and quick service for that price at that location? More than good! (beds were a bid hard!). And if you consider the free pick up from the airport it is worth the price 100%

Room was clean but lacked TV remote (was told none was available). The free shuttle to/from OR Tambo is a real plus and staff onsite were extremely helpful in moving luggage. There was little/no soap in the room upon check in but were able to get more from reception. The sound from the room directly above was very load!
