We stayed in 1 room with a family of four and were very comfortable. The staff were amazing and extremely polite. Location great and would definitely overnight there again. Shuttle to/from airport perfect.

Friendly, caring, welcoming staff. Comfortable beds. Great Internet. Restaurant top notch with a huge selection. When my mother passed away I was staying at the hotel and they sent me beautiful flowers. This was totally unexpected and a lovely gesture that meant so much. Thank you! In Gauteng you surely are the flagship of your group.

We arrived late but were greeted with friendly staff. Wonderful beds,great showers... Due to late and early arrivals and departures we did not get a chance to eat at the hotel. But very clean, modern and accommodating staff. Easy shuttle to use to get to the hotel from the airport.

My wife and I slept here for an evening whilst waiting for our flight at OR Thambo. We had just come from Italy and it was nice to be greeted by friendly staff, good service and an excellent room. The breakfast the next morning was also excellent. It felt good to be back in South Africa!

The service is good because the hotel offered free shuttle service from the airport to the hotel. & upon arriving I received a warm welcoming. The only thing I didn't like about the hotel is to be be charged the parking when I was their guest. In other hotels you don't pay for parking if you have slept there. You...

I received good value for money. the amenities were very good (e.g. a good and well equipped gym), the food was excellent and the staff very friendly. The free shuttle service to and from OR Tambo Airport is excellent. However, I would have appreciated a bit more flexibility when it comes to providing shuttle services. No services was provided to...

I felt very well taken care of. Excellent service indeed though because of tiredness, I did not manage to use the fitness facilities. The overall stay met my expectation as a fruequent guest.. The only observation is is that there are no more gifts for frequent guests
