I tried to post this review on the IHG website it wouldn't accept the review as it said it contained inappropriate language! This was my third and last stay at this establishment! Prior to arrival I e-mailed the hotel on two separate occasions and failed to get a reply. I then tried to telephone, on the first occasion no one answered the phone. A week or so later I tried again and finally got an answer. I booked a shuttle pick up at O R Tambo for 3pm. We arrived at the bus station at 1430 hours and waited until 1505 the bus didn't arrive. I then phoned the hotel and it eventually turned up at 1520. We were booked in and went to the room, despite the IHG cleaning promise we found coffee stains down the side of the bedside table and also a used cotton bud on the bathroom floor as shown in the pictures. The tea and coffee station had not been topped up nor was the TV remote in a sanitised bag (as in the final room). The radio alarm clock was on the table but had no lead to connect it to the mains. I went to reception which was empty and had to ring the hotel from my cell phone to get someone to attend to me. When someone eventually arrived I asked for a properly cleaned room and was shown three others before we found one that had been cleaned properly. In this 'good' room there was no alarm clock radio and the security bar was missing from the door. There were limited staff on duty the poor young girl in reception doubling as barmaid cum house keeper. The outside area was full of weeds and the interior lounge had a gaping hole in the ceiling. As I have commented on the IHG web site whilst staying there and had no reply it will be hardly surprising to me if nothing further is heard by me. I would have thought that in these times of limited travel you would try harder to attract custom not try to deter visitors.

We stayed overnight before joining a safari package. Hotel is basic but pleasant, rooms smallish and breakfast was not included however dining staff gave us complimentary breakfast because we looked nice! Small bar and friendly people, would not hesitate to stay here again. (Left plug behind and they kept it for us to collect.)

Needing a hotel for the night after a flight to Johannesburg before getting collected a a stwy on a wildlife reserve, we picked the HI Airport hotel. Not exactly close to the airport however! The hotel itself was clean and well kept. Staff on reception and in restaurant were friendly and helpful. Shuttle bus available, once we managed to find the pick up spot which ai quite a walk from the airport arrival area. Rooms bright and well kept, had a great night’s sleep. Pool area was quiet (as was hotel whilst we were there) – that said, the weather wasn’t hot, so probably not pool weather?

Stayed overnight after flying in from Perth WA. Shuttle from the airport. Well presented foyer and bar area. Rooms clean and well decorated, not dated. Beds clean and comfortable with a pillow menu to choose from. A drink at the bar before bed. Breakfast was a treat of tasty morsels to appease even the most difficult of palates. Well done! Will most certainly come again.
