I have had very important documents as well as charging cables, toiletries, go missing during my stay at Premier hotel OR Tambo. Lock everything away! I will never ever book premier hotels again. Other than that, the hotel is average in its offering.

Dated, tired and in need of a refresh. The rooms could also have been cleaned a bit better. The restaurant food was not great, facilities average and the gym wanting. Even the courtesy bus to the airport need attention. Overall I was disappointed and assume there must be better elsewhere. Sadly, I would not go back.

The hotel has gated, fenced, secured parking and grounds, which seems to be important anywhere in j berg. The grounds are not much, but the hotel is clean quiet with roomy comfortable rooms. The beds are great. The A/C is good (that's important to me). very nice restaurant/ bar in house. The restaurant is sit down and order off the menu, with white table cloth. All good and very reasonable. Great WiFi. Very fast. Most of the WiFi in africa is so slow it's useless. They have a pool, but it's not much. They have a free shuttle to the airport from 5AM to 11:30 PM, so getting there is hassle free. Only about a 10 minute drive. This hotel seems to be a popular spot for layovers at JNB airport, which is what we did. Lots of business types and airline crews stay there. After checking some of the booking sites, this looks like the best value for the dollar. There are probably more luxurious hotels, but not at $100.00 a night, which is what we paid. Staff was great, rooms were great.

We arrived at the airport at 10pm after having travelled the whole day. We had booked at the Protea by Marriott. On arriving there we were told that there were no rooms available - and we were taken to the Premier hotel. Being very tired I was not impressed - but the Premier Hotel made up for it. Lovely place, great breakfast and friendly staff.

When we checked in on Friday the service we got at the Check in desk was exceptional, its a pity l didn't take the name of the lady. We then went out and came back around 7pm on approaching the foyer just by the lifts they were about 10 waiters and potters just milling around, while guests where passing they where shouting to each other loudly in a variety of languages. It made the hotel so cheap and the guests very uncomfortable. On Sunday whilst having breakfast, l asked for rooibos tea and initial was given a cold cup of tea with lemon and honey on advising the waiter who was by the way very rude... l got tea served in a coffee mug of which l reported to the supervisor. I later didn't drink the tea. In the Restaurant waiters are comfortable with shouting loudly to one another in front of guests and attention to the guests is very minimal as it seems the waiters will be busier with story telling. The shuttle was dirty when we took it from the airport on the Friday and to the Airport on the Sunday Toilets are lacking proper cleaning, l was in Room 720. Premier has always been our hotel of choice since Mr Cramer's time but l have observed the standards go down and the staff become more important than the guests. Oh! what happened to the welcome sherry which was served by the foyer, it always made guests feel so welcome.
