A quirky hotel surrounded by aircraft on the airfield outside and aeroplane memorabilia inside. Incredibly helpful staff day and night. Would definitely go back.Room facilites more than adequate even down to fresh milk in the fridge.

The service was excellent and the breakfast was very nice as well. The room was very clean and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. You also receive a complimentary hot chocolate and rusk. I would definitely recommend Dakota Lodge.

Warm welcome by professional staff. Room facing the landing strip of Rand Airport , an experience to be remembered! Thank you Captain Flippie Vermeulen. The classic Dakota on display favoured us so much so that a flight with her is a must as soon as possible!!!

What an amazing idea - a hotel in an hangar at the airport. The boys were delighted! The rooms are functional, with a shower only in the bathroom. There is a "kitchenette", with tea / coffee making facility, a prep bowl and basin - we found that useful. Sadly our A/C wasn't very good. The staff were incredibly helpful. There's...

Needed a hotel at Rand for a scenic flight over Johannesburg and could not have found d a better one. Good staff and a good breakfast also a plus, and for dinner pop next door to the Harvard grill. All together good value for a couple of nights.

I like Rand Airport, the area the Dakota Lodge is located. I was looking for an alternative to the guesthouse me and my colleagues usually stay in during business trips. The Dakota Lodge is 150m away from the Harvard Cafe, a nice place to sit, eat, drink and relax. The Dakota Lodge is a clean place with friendly staff. I...

Dear Uli Lange, It is with great sadness that I read your review. I was only informed about this incident when it was to late. The files in the rooms have been corrected, to the defence of the tariffs, we have only changed the laundry suppliers recently and that was one of the first invoices we received. No excuse, just...

Harare
Reviewed 17 September 2016 via mobile

Built in an old hangar on the airport premises, it is the ideal place for aircrew and business people passing through. Surprisingly quiet despite its location with clean comfortable rooms. It would have been better if Internet was available in the rooms. Friendly, welcoming staff - will definitely be going back.
