Comfy Hotel, good food, staff is not very friendly at all. Close to the airport and clean, value for money, like already mentioned, the staff is not friendly and comes across as irritated with the guests

A wonderful hotel which is so convenient to the airport. A shuttle goes to and from O R Tambo every 30 minutes. The reception area is very clean and staff very welcoming. The room was spotless and extremely comfortable with a full en-suite bathroom. Would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is conveniently located, with a free shuttle to and from O. R Tambo Airport. Shuttles run every 1/4hr from either end: starting at 5am from the hotel. At the airport meet them at the shuttle bus terminal behind the Intercontinental Hotel. As for the hotel itself: it is getting old and a bit run down. Our bathroom was new and modern, and the bed was good, but everything else was tired. Staff were wonderful. Hot tip: get bottled water before you arrive.

Only one night spent at this hotel, but a perfect one. We were pleasantly surprised with the overall look of the hotel, the small pool, the restaurant, the bar, the lobby and of course our room. We booked for a suite and everything we wished for was there. It was huge, nice and clean. The service at the restaurant was a bit slow but the food was good. We didnt get to try the food at breakfast since we were leaving early so cannot rate that. The hotel has a free shuttle from and to the airport which is a plus. We really liked our short stay.

We had booked the hotel in dec and Jan as we were in transit to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Right away you notice the staff are still stuck in the colonial era as they give preferential treatment to their white guests as opposed to BAME clients. It’s not hidden it’s quite direct prejudice as they will rush to assist their masters and leave you the client that they were helping initially for their masters. They will speak to them differently too. Secondly we had an issue whereby one of our family members had to stay extra at the hotel and was not well. I contacted the hotel requesting help with adding an additional day until we arrived and a late check out as we would be arriving by a later flight. The staff we spoke to were very rude and quite conceited. Their main focus were the additional fees (which I totally understand) but how this was relayed to us. Furthermore, given that the family member was unwell and old surely the hotel staff could’ve tried to empathise with her.

Dear Guest, Many thanks for the feedback and for taking the time to complete this online survey. It certainly helps myself and the team to understand where we fell short on delivering the exceptional service we strive to achieve. I am disappointed that your stay was far from professional and lacked in the basics of hotel keeping. Your candid feedback is duly noted and will be discussed with my management team and indeed with the team at large. It also disappoints me that your comments on the team’s interaction was lacking. That being said we will take note of all your comments and will discuss them in our meetings. Thank you or bringing these matters to my attention and do hope you will visit us again soon. Best Regards Aime LEJEUNE | Resident Manager

We stayed here before and after our Kruger safari. Check in was fine & friendly staff. Rooms were very clean and bed very comfortable. The first time, our stay was perfect. Air conditioning very noisy but worked and we had some lovely wine and food in the restaurant (the evening buffet was good as was breakfast). Shower was good and no issues with load shedding. Wifi good. The second time we stayed, we ate off the menu and my dish wasn’t great (should have gone with the buffet again) and when we had the air air conditioning on at night, it did not work and an error code kept coming up. We told reception the next morning, these things happen so no major issue. Overall, this is a good, clean hotel and does not feel like an airport hotel. I would use again.

The hotel is situated near the airport for convenience. Upon entering the smokers lounge is connected to the reception and you’re greeted by the stench of smoke and poor ventilation. The air conditioners on the rooms are not working which makes it for a very uncomfortable stay.

Just here as an overnighter before flying out of Johannesburg again the next morning. Some confusion about where the shuttle bus was, but got there in the end. Room was spacious and clean , staff very friendly and helpful, dinner and breakfast buffets were nice. Didn’t use the pool or other facilities. All in all a good stay, thank you

Disappointing stay. Hotel offers 24 hour room service but impossible to get someone to answer a phone (both room service and reception). Walk down to reception at 2am to try and get assistance. Other encounters with staff equally disappointing with poor, rude service. Bed comfy and room clean but quite dated with noisy, ineffective aircon. Recommend Marriott Protea instead.

Your dining experience is duly noted and appreciated, although it is still very disappointing to read as we do spend an inordinate amount working on this important part of our service delivery and for this I apologize. The hotel is currently going through a refurbishment that should deal with your comments on the room, This will however be of cold comfort to you and for this I apologize Thank you or bringing these concerns to my attention and do hope you will visit us again soon.
